A Heart's Disguise is the first part of six in author Colleen Coble's Journey of the Heart series. This is a reprint of the author's very first book, but it is now split into six installments. Each installment is a short, 128 page book you can quickly read. Colleen Coble wrote this story after the unexpected death of her brother. The story is the re-imagining of what her brother might have experienced in his beloved Wyoming if he'd lived there as a frontiersman in the 19th century.
About A Heart's Disguise: In the aftermath of the Civil War, a young woman searches for her lost love at the edge of the West. 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?
My Thoughts: A Heart's Disguise is a great Historical Romance. At only 128 pages, it is a quick weekend read. I find it fascinating to read about war time long ago and the effect it had on families and entire communities. I was so excited that Rand arrived back before Sarah married Ben! But, of course, Ben does not accept losing Sarah, and Rand questions why Sarah turned to another man so quickly. Colleen Coble does a great job of quickly engaging the reader in the story, and keeping the interest throughout the book. I am excited to read the next book in the series, A Heart's Obsession!
