About the Book
Five years after the final shot was fired in the War Between the States, Selah Daughtry can barely manage to keep herself, her two younger sisters, and their spinster cousin fed and clothed. With their family’s Mississippi plantation swamped by debt and the Big House falling down around them, the only option seems to be giving up their ancestral land.
Pinkerton agent and former Union cavalryman Levi Riggins is investigating a series of robberies and sabotage linked to the impoverished Daughtry plantation. Posing as a hotel management agent for the railroad, he tells Selah he’ll help her save her home, but only if it is converted into a hotel. With Selah otherwise engaged with renovations, Levi moves onto the property to “supervise” while he actually attends to his real assignment right under her nose.
Selah isn’t sure she entirely trusts the handsome Yankee, but she’d do almost anything to save her home. What she never expected to encounter was his assault on her heart.

In My Opinion
Set in post-Civil War Mississippi, A Rebel Heart by Beth White gives readers an honest look at some of the atrocities of war and the struggle life was afterward.
Selah and her sisters are memorable as they fight to save their plantation home. Levi Riggins is a hero I could get behind from the start of the book and, as I discovered more about him, just liked him more.
There are several plot lines happening throughout the book that, at times, were difficult to follow. By the end of the story, I was pleased with how everything came together, though. This was the first book by the author I have read, and I enjoyed my time with Selah and Riggins as well as the other characters.
