The Civil War has destroyed Sarah Montgomery’s marriage before it’s even begun.
After Sarah receives word that her fiancé, Rand Campbell, has been killed fighting for the Union, her brothers and ailing father persuade her to pledge herself to Ben Croftner—despite her strong misgivings. But when Sarah finds out that Rand is in fact alive—and that Ben Croftner knew it—she indignantly breaks off the engagement and goes in search of Rand.
But Ben Croftner does not take rejection lightly—and a single woman with a sick father makes an easy target. When Sarah is abducted by her treacherous fiancé, Rand finally comes to her aid . . . only to reveal that he has been posted at Fort Laramie, Wyoming, and intends to take her there as his wife.
But could Sarah leave her dying father’s side for the love of her life? And what plans are forming in the jealous heart of Ben Croftner?
A Heart’s Disguise was an enjoyable read for all of the 30 minutes it took me to start and finish it;-) This novella has only 96 pages, but they are 96 pages well used! The story was engaging and the characters were very well displayed given the short amount of time we were able to meet them. The only issue I really had with A Heart’s Disguise was that the synopsis is slightly misleading and reveals too much of the story. If the synopsis had been written much shorter and didn’t reveal so much about the story, there would have been that small element of surprise. However, the end was still slightly shocking and this book is a fabulous set-up to the rest of the Journeys of the Heart series, I can’t wait to finish them! 5 out of 5 stars!
