Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine. It's a way to highlight the books that have yet to be published, but hope to read when they are.

Title: Rebellious Heart
Author: Jody Hedlund
Publisher: Bethany House
Publication Date: September 15th, 2013

From GoodReads
In 1763 Massachusetts, Susanna Smith has grown up with everything she's ever wanted, except one thing: an education. Because she's a female, higher learning has been closed to her, but her quick mind and quicker tongue never back down from a challenge. She's determined to put her status to good use, reaching out to the poor and deprived. And she knows when she marries well, she will be able to continue her work with the less fortunate. 

Ben Ross grew up a farmer's son and has nothing to his name but his Harvard education. A poor country lawyer, he doesn't see how he'll be able to fulfill his promise to make his father proud of him. When family friends introduce him to the Smith family, he's drawn to quick-witted Susanna but knows her family expects her to marry well. When Susanna's decision to help an innocent woman no matter the cost crosses with Ben's growing disillusionment with their British rulers, the two find themselves bound together in what quickly becomes a very dangerous fight for justice.
Why I Want to Read It:
I love with Jody Hedlund's writing. She writes beautifully and just brings you into the story and her attention to detail is phenomenal. I'm looking forward to reading more.

What are you looking forward to?


  1. I'm looking forward to Rebellious Heart too! And all of those books with very interesting synopses, coming in 2014. As well as, Melissa Tagg's Made to last, and Dani Pettery's Strandered.

  2. Agree! There are so many up and coming books that just sound great! I'm looking forward to Made to Last and I'm looking forward to reading Dani Pettery's series. So many books, so little time it seems. :-)

  3. Jody is one of my absolute favs, so I'm definitely counting down the days until I get my hands on this one!!

  4. Jamie, she is joining the ranks of favorite authors for me. :-) I can't wait to hear what you think of Rebellious Heart.
