After Sarah receives word that her fiancé, Rand Campbell, has been killed fighting for the Union, her brothers and ailing father persuade her to pledge herself to Ben Croftner—despite her strong misgivings.
Let me start by explaining that minuscule book description. The description the publisher provided (which also is the back cover copy) gives away the entire book. It's basically a plot summary. Fortunately, I didn't read the back cover before picking up this book—if I had, I would have been disappointed.
This is the first serialized novel I've ever read, so I wasn't sure what to expect. And this is the first print serialized novel I've ever seen—all the others have been ebooks.
A Heart's Disguise is intriguing, but it feels very incomplete ... for good reason! I read the entire thing (which is only 90 pages) in about an hour, and I am anxious to read more.
Sarah is a very interesting character—she's a woman who is desperate to please her family, and she doesn't take her own needs into account in order to do what she thinks best for those she loves. I can't wait to see where this journey takes her! 4 stars.
Note: This serialized series is releasing one section per month over a six month period.
