I had the opportunity to review the first book in Mary Connealy's Wild at Heart series. In Tried & True, Mary shares her signature humor and heartfelt story-telling.
This was such a fun book! I loved all three sisters and can't wait to see how their stories unfold. (Yes, I will be purchasing the rest of the series when published!) This was a great story set in the post-civil war era. This book focuses on Kylie the youngest of a trio of sisters. Kylie longs for simpler times when women could be women.
Kylie's life is anything from easy living on a new farm alone. Women just didn't do that sort of thing at that time. She finds herself having to deal with the daily work and not really enjoying herself. Then Aaron - the land agent happens upon her and her life changes. She finds herself in a a whirlwind romance and has to trust God's plan for her life.
About the book:
Saddle up for a wildly fun ride with the Wilde sisters!
Kylie Wilde is the youngest sister---and the most civilized. Her older sisters might be happy dressing in trousers and posing as men, but Kylie has grown her hair long and wears skirts every chance she gets. It's a risk---they are homesteading using the special exemptions they earned serving in the Civil War as "boys"---but Kylie plans to make the most of the years before she can sell her property and return to the luxuries of life back East.
Local land agent Aaron Masterson is fascinated with Kylie from the moment her long hair falls from her cap. But now that he knows her secret, can he in good conscience defraud the U.S. government? And when someone tries to force Kylie off her land, does he have any hope of convincing her that marrying him and settling on the frontier is the better option for her future?
