The Heart’s Rebellion by Ruth Axtell

The Heart’s Rebellion

by Ruth Axtell


In a world governed by unspoken rules, one young woman is about to break them all . . .

Dutiful Jessamine Barry is tired of waiting patiently for a man to decide her future. So even though Lancelot Marfleet, second son of an aristocrat, is taking an interest in her during the London season, she refuses to consider him as a suitor. Instead, she’s ready to take fashionable society by storm–and finds a rakish young man all too willing to help her do it.

Can Jessamine trust her heart to lead her to a love that proves true through thick and thin? Or will her rash actions close the door on the life she really desires?



Jessamine Barry left her old life to ease the pain of a broken heart, but she soon finds out that she ran the wrong way. Jessamine’s new fast pace life leads her into situations much worse that those she ran from. It is through the love, mercy and grace of God that this young lady is able to find her true self, and the life that God has for her.

The Heart’s Rebellion is a really pleasant historical read. Following Jessamine’s life, there are many things that relates to the lives of many people today. And I appreciate the way Ms. Axtell weaves the scriptures into the lives of her characters. I enjoyed getting to know Jessamine, as well as the rest of the characters surrounding her. You will be entertained while reading this refreshing book from author Ruth Axtell.

With grace and mastery, Ruth Axtell has penned a lush regency tale where a heart’s rebellion slowly ripens into a love everlasting.”–Julie Lessman, award-winning author of the Daughters of Boston and Winds of Change series
