Heart Racing Read!



Review by Diana Flowers


Amid the war of 1812 the British invade Baltimore, Maryland, and no one feels safe. No one that is except for Rose McGuire, who feels that the British would never venture so close to Baltimore. Ignoring the warning bells she has heard tolling so many times, Rose leaves her home unescorted to go tend the horses. She is brutally attacked by a British lieutenant, and in the aftermath, must hide and nurse back to health another wounded enemy soldier, in spite of her hatred for him. Can she keep him alive and hidden without risking her life and the lives of her family? And how can she have feelings for a man she should hate...a man whose fellow countrymen are burning and pillaging her neighbor's homes and brutally attacking the women? What deeply hidden anguish lies within her and does the dashing British 2nd Lieutenant, Alexander Reed, hold the key to unlock the terrible secret that lies hidden in her heart?

As always when I read a novel based on fact, of any revolution that has taken place in our country's history, I am always reminded of the bravery and the tremendous price our forefathers paid for the freedoms we all now enjoy. I was moved to tears with this heart racing, heartrending, passionately romantic novel! Outstandingly researched and beautifully written, in my opinion this is MaryLu's finest book yet!

*As a Southerner I can't resist saying that I can't wait for MaryLu's upcoming series, which will take place in my neighboring historical city of Charleston, S.C.!*


Thank you Diana for yet another wonderful review. MaryLu is graciously giving away a copy of her book. Please stop by and leave your comments for Diana and MaryLu. Blessings!
