I received a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.
Rebecca comes to Jackson for a friend’s wedding and to help an escaped slave find her way to her family. There, she is introduced to Jared and sparks fly right away. Through a series of misunderstandings, Rebecca keeps leaving Jared confused and suspicious. She made a huge deal about keeping him out of the escaped slave smuggling business and refused his proposal rather than just being a grown up and just saying “yes, but not quite yet!” It seems like a bit of it was over-manufactured. The story itself was good and Jared was as loyal and sweet as could be.
The narrator was what I would call a “reader” and not an “actress”. Oh she tried here and there to add some emotion here and there. But for the most part, she was reading the way she would recite it. I think it took away a bit from the overall enjoyment of the story.
The book is set in colonial America and features some forward-thinking, humane people who's lives interact. I was a little iffy starting out, on whether I'd like the book or not, but that concern was quickly put to rest as the characters and plot came alive.
I thoroughly enjoyed the book, curious to see what would happen next and whether my thoughts on how things would turn out, would come true. Charmingly written with both feel-good and tension moments throughout.
