Product Description

Emily Harrison, a passionate anti-slavery advocate, has to give up her passion as a conductor in the Underground Railroad since her parents home went into foreclosure after they died. She now found a position as a governess in slave-holding Virginia. To further add to her distress, attractive, spoiled, yet elusive Gray Wraith lives right under the same roof with his uncle. Fortunately, she's managed to avoid him since he seems preoccupied. But Gray is not who he appears to be; he is on Emily's side as a Quaker leader of the Rebel Partisans. Will they ever trust each other enough to confide their true purpose in life and love?

Publisher's Description

Bestselling author Mary Ellis presents The Quaker and the Rebel, Book 1 of her brand-new Civil War historical romance series, which tells the stories of brave women in times of testing and the men who love them.

Emily Harrison's life has been turned upside down. At the beginning of the Civil War, she bravely attempted to continue her parents' work as conductors in the Underground Railroad until their Ohio farm was sold in foreclosure. Now alone, she accepts a position as a governess with a doctor's family in slave-holding Virginia. Perhaps she can continue her rescue efforts from there.

Alexander Hunt is the doctor's handsome nephew. While he does not deny a growing attraction to his uncle's newest employee, he cannot take time to pursue Emily. Alex is not at all what he seems--rich, spoiled, and indolent. He is the elusive Gray Wraith, a Quaker leader of Rebel partisans. A man of the shadows, he carries no firearm and wholeheartedly believes in Emily's antislavery convictions.

The path before Alex and Emily is complicated and sometimes life threatening. The war brings betrayal, entrapment, and danger to both of them. Amid their growing feelings for each other, can they find faith in God amid the challenges they face and trust in the possibility for a bright future together?

Author Bio

    Oh my word. Never before has a book changed my mind so strongly on any particular subject than "The Quaker and the Rebel"by Mary Ellis!

    What a story!

    I have never been a fan of war romances_ WWII, WWI or Civil war - but here I sit, a converted FAN! And I can not wait until the next book.

    This book will make you laugh, make you cry and it will give you an entirely new outlook on the Civil war era!

    Reading about the outcome of so many tragic battles and the stealth need to help abused slaves escape to freedom in a dry history book simply can not give you the same impact as reading about your heroine's reaction to the horror and danger associated with the very same things.

    Mary Ellis gives us all of that - first through the eyes of a staunch Quaker who is disturbed by the Southern lack of understanding as to why owning another human being is wrong, and then through the eyes of a gentile southern gentleman who is trying to do everything he can to help his precious south move into the future with as little bloodshed as possible.

    It is an adventure that won't soon be forgotten and it has given me an entirely new outlook on this portion of our country's troubled past. I will never look at another Civil War battlefield the same way again, I can assure you!

    Not only that_ the book is extremely well-written. You can hear the skirts swish, the hooves pound and even feel the pain of corset stays. The experiences are written with such emotion attached, as well as descriptive language. And, while it is not described in the ugliest terms, nothing about the tragedy and hardship about this particular time on our bloody history is glossed over.

    Mary Ellis has made a fan out of me - a new reader who is eagerly awaiting her next book and wondering if I dare read anyone else's books, for fear that they may not be in the same ballpark. I suppose I have no other choice, at least until her next book arrives in stores. I shall have to haunt the local library and find anything else that I can and hope it is equally appealing.

    I received this book free in exchange for an honest review.

    I am never disappointed by Mary Ellis. From her Amish fiction all the way to the Civil War, Ellis proves to be an excellent storyteller.

    This first in the series of Civil War Heroines, Ellis puts a Quaker maid toe to toe with a Rebel and his troop. Widely understood in the deep south and scorned, the underground railroad comes to life as Emily Harrison does what she can to aid slaves into finding their freedom.

    Once again, Mary Ellis does an excellent job to weave an informational and intriguing story. - Cindy Sproles, Exec. Editor, ChristianDevotions.us

    It took me a few chapters to get into the story, but once I connected with the characters, I enjoyed reading about the escapades of Emily and Alexander as they each did their part to help in the Civil War.

    I'm not usually a fan of war era books, no matter the war, but this one was interesting. I don't know much about historical accuracy, but Ms. Ellis did an excellent job of keeping me enthralled in the goings on in the Bennington and Hunt households as they dealt with their heritage and the war the best they could.

    ***I received this novel from the author/publisher for the purpose of review. The above is my honest opinion.***

    SUMMARY:

    Working as a governess in Virginia at the time of the Civil War, Emily Harrison decides to continue her parents' work in the Underground Railroad. Her employer's dashing nephew though has other ideas due to his loyalty to the Confederacy as well as his alias, the Gray Wraith. Will two totally different worlds ever find success and happiness in love, beliefs and life?

    A PENNY FOR MY THOUGHTS:

    I found this book to be very well written, especially within the time period of the Civil War. Mystery, suspense, romance, thievery, faith and cultural beliefs all are a part of this dramatic novel. Mary Ellis did a thorough job of colliding opposite realms in an intriguing style. Through a love of history and involvement in a local historical society and Civil War Roundtable, the author apparently is well educated in the Civil War which shines through in her story. Definitely a series I will continue to read, I look forward to The Lady And The Officer as the next selection.

    RATING:

    4.5 (out of 5)

    A young Quaker woman, who is loyal to the Union, becomes a governess with a doctor's family in Virginia. Despite its dangerous nature, she continues to assist in the escape of slaves. Becoming involved with a man who is secretly a famous Confederate soldier is not in her best interest, but they are drawn to each other anyway. Filled with intrigue, twists around every chapter, and nail-biting tension, ‘The Quaker and the Rebel" is a well-rounded book bound to enthrall. Upon doing some research I found that romantic novels seldom ever include Quakers as subject matter; when reflecting on the many similar books that I had read in the past I was shocked to find that this was indeed the case. Therefore, it was refreshing to read a novel that incorporated the less literary explored life of the average Quaker. You will fall in love with the spunky character of Emily Harrison as well as her dashing Gray Wraith, Alexander Hunt, as they tiptoe across serious political and moral issues, such as slavery, as well as cross enemy lines. I recommend this book to anyone with an appetite for adventure and romance. (rev Jael B.)
