A Heart That Dares is a real page turner, it is hard to put down. The book is set during the Civil War, and a very different story it is. Although it is fiction, it probably could have happened.
When the General asks Amanda Giles to take her recently deceased brother's place, she becomes a spy for the North. She does this as a boy, and "Lady" from England, and a Southern Plantation Wife. Very very different.
She is a talented artist, and her pictures are published in National Newspapers, they think she is a male.
Although she has made up her mind to never marry and live a boheimian lifestyle...ummm enter Daniel McGrath, he does not like the idea of a woman as a spy. He does all he can to make the General change his mind, and even if he won't admit it, he is enchanted with Amanda.
This book has it all with the eminent danger, suspense, and heart breaking plight of the slaves.
You will love the interaction between Amanda and Birdie...you would think they had been together forever!
The only problem I had with the book was that there was to much focus on sex, the book would be great without it!
I received this book from the Author Jill Limber, and was not required to give a positive review.
