I received this book for free from the author. A positive review was not required, and all opinions expressed are my own.
A Rebel in My House is a novel that brought tears to my eyes and that’s saying something. The detailed scenes and the characters seemed so alive to me that it was as if I was there witnessing what was occurring at the time. Sarah Hubbard is a single woman making her living as a dressmaker in Gettysburg when a stranger knocks on her door and requests aid. As time goes on it seems the danger is increasing near her home from the war so Sarah goes to live with her sister and niece in town. Yet, Sarah cannot help but think of the stranger who is once again in the thick of battle.
The knock that began the change in Sarah’s life continues to bring more conflict of the heart than anything else. Of course, Sarah’s conflict with her sister Martha doesn’t help Sarah in any way. Towards the end of the story is when I was near tears as the author depicts a very touching scene that I can imagine took place many times during the war. When I read how Sandra prepared to write this story for us to enjoy, I could tell it really touched her heart with the real people behind the fictional ones.
Please read both of her novels and enjoy them. I sure did and again I cannot wait to see what flows from her pen in the future!
Also Martha could have looked at Sarah's kindness and mercy in a good light she saved their home from being ransacked, themselves from being harmed, and if her husband had been wounded wouldn't she have wanted a Southern woman to tend him as compassionatly as Sarah had Jesse and the others?
I liked the ending but wonder about a possible sequel so we can see Jesse and Sarah at war's end in Tennessee and meet his family and find out if anyone tried to turn Sarah in?
