A Heart Revealed by Josi Kilpack, Blog Tour Book Review

Book Summary:

Amber Marie Sterlington, the Rage of the Season in Regency-era London, has her pick of men, and she knows what she wants most in a husband: a title and a fortune. Why would she ever marry for something as fickle as love? And why would she ever look twice at Thomas Richards, a third son of a country lord?
But when Amber's social standing is threatened, the character of her future husband becomes far more important than his position. After a public humiliation, she find herself exiled to Yorkshire. alone except for her maid, Amber is faced with a future she never expected in a circumstance far below what she has known all her life. Humbled and lonely, Amber begins to wonder if isolation is for the best. Who could ever love her now?

My Review:

I have read many regency novels and none have been as riveting as Kilpack's A Heart Revealed! Master storyteller Kilpack sets the stage, makes an emotional connection from characters to reader leaving the latter glued to the story! The question at hand is what genre can't Kilpack write? This reader is impressed how easily Kilpack can switch her skills from modern mystery to historical regency! The layers to the story and to each main character is incredible. While I liked Thomas from the onset, Amber was a character I never thought I would come to like! Kilpack has a beautiful way of showing change in her characters and as a reader I was surprised at how she could change my feelings toward Amber! This book has left an impression in my mind that I will not soon forget, and it is well worth the time it will take you to read! A book of transformation of epic proportions, A Heart Revealed is a beautiful tale and Kilpack has told it well.

Happy Reading!!!
