I actually read a book this week, people. Things have been so chaotic around here with my cataclysmic month of disease....reading just hasn't happened. But this week, I read a book! Only one, since I'm throwing my sister's baby shower tomorrow (and with our cataclysmic month of disease, I was not on top of my game and have had to prepare everything in the space of one week!), but hopefully next week I'll be back to my normal reading habits! (P.S. stay tuned for a post about the shower!)
Anyway! The book!
Rebellious Heart by Jody Hedlund
I am a sucker for historical fiction with some romance, so when I saw this on the new arrivals display at our local library, I grabbed it. And I REALLY enjoyed it. Set in 1763 in Massachusetts, it follows a young woman and an young lawyer. At the end of the book, I discovered it was loosely based on John and Abigail Adams courtship. There isn't a lot recorded about that time in their lives, but the author took what there was and then made up the rest. I've always been interested in that period of history, and especially in Abigail Adams, so it was fun to read the afterword (including what really happened and what she made up to fill in the blank spaces). I liked this book so well, it's going on my Paperback Swap request wishlist!
