About this ebook

Caroline sighed. She longed to be away from here, from the rain and barren hills and bitter winds, with nothing ever happening. It was as if she’d spent her whole life waiting for something truly exciting…


1832, Scotland: When Caroline Reid is offered the chance to travel to America to live with her estranged uncle, she has only two things on her mind: to become the belle of Boston society and to make an enviable—and financially advantageous—match.


But from the moment her journey begins, things do not go as she expects. From the seasickness on her Atlantic crossing, to the unexpected friendship she strikes up with a young widow named Eleanor, the Caroline who set sail for the New World isn’t quite the same person who arrives there…


Then she meets Eleanor’s brother, Ian Campbell, and her rebel heart cannot help but beat faster. Even though he doesn’t have a fortune, Caroline’s feelings overwhelm her earlier ambitions. However, her uncle—who had so gallantly invited her to live in his house—has other plans. And he will stop at absolutely nothing to get what he wants…


An unmissable story about friendship, courage and impossible choices for fans of Diana Gabaldon, Tamera Alexander and Poldark.

Previously published as Another Country.

A fantastic continuation of the Campbell and MacDougall families! After so thoroughly enjoying the first book, I was thrilled to read the next installment of this fascinating, epic story. Her Rebel Heart picks up ten years after the ending in The Heart Goes On, and we see the younger siblings now matured and ready to take on the world. Like the first book, this one takes us through two romances, but it also lets us catch up with the families that we're already familiar with and see how their HEAs are working out. The vivid historical details instantly transport the reader back in time. Not only do we experience the day-to-day lives of the immigrants, but we also are witnesses to the politics and social norms of the times. From the transatlantic crossing to the medical experiments to the criminal element in 1932 Boston, there is quite a lot going on around every corner. The romances are as different from each other as they can be, but be assured they both end with a triumphant HEA. Rupert, Ian, Eleanor, and Caroline are all wonderfully developed characters, people who are easy to care about even when they're not easy to love. Through it all, the emphasis is on the importance of family and making one's way in the world. I was thoroughly captivated right from the start and couldn't put it down until I was done. It's every bit as well written as the first book, and I'm looking forward to reading the third. If you like family sagas like Centennial, you'll love this series. I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this book.
