Summary

Rebecca Davis promises to raise her dying sister's newborn son as her own. She also agrees to help a female slave reach freedom. It's the right thing to do, but can she trust her fellow conspirators without endangering her future or her son? Her handsome contact, Jared Hollingsworth, won't discuss their mission, but her attraction to him has Rebecca fearing she will endanger not only her freedom--but her heart. Jared Hollingsworth refuses to use slave labor. Despite this sentiment, he's been able to keep his plantation going, even while mourning the death of his wife and son. Now, thanks to his notorious cousin, Jared is in danger of losing Oak Hill. When he meets Rebecca Davis, he isn't ready to love again, but she may be just what he needs to save his home and his heart. When he discovers Rebecca embroiled in a conspiracy, will he follow his heart and dare to love again? Or will he risk her heart to save his beloved plantation?

Love it!

I like the backdrop of the story. It is set in 1857 in Memphis and Jefferson. People in that era are courteous and elegant at large. I like their 19th century vocabulary reflected in conversations. Rebecca is a kind-hearted woman who is so amiable and enchanting. I was so engrossed while I embarked on a journey with her.

Rebecca & Jared


This was a book I had no trouble listening to the plot had a enough action and romance to satisfy that part of my soul and enough action and adventure as well. The research into pre civil war life in the south was quite good although I did have a couple of little niggles. Rebecca is bringing up her sisters baby as her own, never having been married but is not ostracised by "polite society"? Jared's plantation is put at risk by fraudulent IOU's, surely as he can prove he didn't sign them Oak Hill would be safe? Would a young single mother put her life at risk to reunite a stranger with her family?

Niggles aside I did enjoy the book. The storyline is both romantic and paints a picture of life at that time. Rebecca and Jared meet at a mutual friends wedding, Jared is there because he is a friend of the groom and Rebecca is there as a friend of the bride. Jared having shown no interest in any woman since becoming a widower finds Rebecca both interesting and attractive. They talk and agree to meet again.

Their love story builds slowly but steadily and I for one really liked them as a couple. The characterisation by the author is well done, you feel you are really getting to know all the players in the story. This is not just Rebecca & Jared's story it features her aunt, who undergoes a total character transformation during the book. It features too the town doctor and Rory, Jared's disreputable cousin.

As the book progressed I found myself totally immersed in it and I so wanted everything to work out. The blurb tells you what to expect and I have told you a little more, I would love to add to the review but I really don't want to spoil this book for you. What I will say is that there are twists and turns to the story and it is beautifully performed by Karen Rose Richter, the nuances she brought to every character and the inflections in her voice so added to my total immersion and enjoyment of this book.

I was given this audio book as a gift and I am voluntarily writing this review which contains only my own personal opinions.
