    One thought on “The Quaker and the Rebel”

    1. Emily was hot and cold this whole book just not a joy to read about One minute she was warm as apple pie and then plain persnickety There was nice witty banter between the two and Ellis is a good writer so it flowed well but I wanted less angst between the two and adventure with the whole family Less sap

    2. Miss Emily Harrison, a Quaker from Ohio, has accepted a role as governess for the slave owning Bennington family in Virginia in the early months of the Civil War My first impression of Emily was of a self righteous, judgemental and na ve young lady, someone who has been raised in an insular anti slavery environment and who hasn t yet learned that life isn t all black and white I found her to be an unlikeable heroine, and that affected the whole book for me That s not just my opinion Emily s empl [...]

    3. For a Quaker, a person of peace and simplicity, Emily is extremely strong minded, apt to lose her temper, and tempted toward vanities she likes pretty dresses, a touch of make up, and a bit of male attention She is quick to judge the Benningtons and Hunts as evil for keeping slaves, even under much fairer and positive conditions than much of the South, yet she promptly lies to them and uses them to further her own ends, not to mention judges them and does so unfairly Given her tendency toward b [...]

    4. When Emily Harrison takes a job as governess for the Bennington girls she has no idea what she is getting herself into After the death of her parents, Emily is forced to sell their farm and seek employment until her fianc e returns With the Benningtons Emily find a very kind family, but with one flaw They re slave owners As a Quaker Emily is appalled by slavery and becomes very outspoken against the institution She goes so far as to confront Mr Bennington publicly drawing the ire of those who wi [...]

    5. This book continues the introductory novella featuring Quaker Emily Harrison who has become a governess for a Virginia slave holding family Emily loves the Hunt family, but her staunch belief in the sanctity of all human life leads her to secret rendevouz to help slaves on the plantation through the underground railroad With plenty of twists and turns and some sparks flying between Emily and Alexander, Mary Ellis wove an interesting and entertaining plot that brought the Civil War from a souther [...]

    6. THE QUAKER AND THEE REBEL is Ms Ellis first published historical and the first book in the Civil War Heroines Series Set during the Civil War, it is a different twist than most Civil War novels featuring main characters on opposite sides of the war Alexander is the Rebel and Emily is the Yankee But that said, Alexander is also the Quaker and Emily is also the rebel, running a portion of the Underground Railroad.Emily is much opinionated than I am familiar with in historical romances, too Strong [...]

    7. The Quaker and the Rebel was a delightful read that intertwined two lesser known subjects of the Civil War, the Underground Railroad and Rangers Both of these intense subjects made for an exciting book Ellis s attention to detail brought history to life I m looking forward to the next book in the series.

    8. spoiler alertI loved the historical aspect the descriptions were so vivid However, I couldn t fully understand some of Emily s thought processes, she is so hot and cold in her feelings for Alexander Perhaps if I were Quaker her actions might make sense Yet, I can t imagine anyone who claims to be as steadfast religious as she claims, to sneak into a man s bedroom at night

    9. I enjoyed this book a lot It s exciting than Beverly Lewis works and is very similar to Jocelyn Green s Lewis Amish focus is somewhat in this work with Green s subject matter included I recommend reading this for sure, especially for Amish and historical fiction book enthusiasts.

    11. The Quaker and The Rebel Civil War Heroines series, Book 1 by Mary Ellis rcenamo This is a Christian historical fiction with romance book He wanted to use her.She wanted to use him.Neither thought love was possible especially during the Civil War.Emily Harrison is from Ohio and pro Union her parents were abolitionists, and the man she thought she was falling in love with was a Union soldier Still, she decided to take a job as a governess for a Southern family in VirginiaAlexander Hunt is anythin [...]

    12. The premise really drew me in for this book I mean, reallya conductor in the Underground Railroad falling for a Rebel leader How intriguing A devout Quaker, Emily took the job as governess intending to convince slaves to take the first step towards freedom and views the South as the enemy, especially after her parents were beaten and her fiance killed Alexander Hunt is the son of a wealthy horse breeder, and as the elusive Gray Wraith, his non violent band of rangers raids deliveries of medicine [...]

    13. Author Mary Ellis is known for her Amish novels, but she s begun a new series, called Civil War Heroines, with the first release being The Quaker and the Rebel The story spans the majority of the war, ending after Lee s surrender Historical Flavor Ms Ellis based her character of Alexander on the Rebel notables Gen John Hunt Morgan and Colonel Mosby.Emily means well, but from page one, she displays a tendency for trouble When she s not offending her new employer, she s offending the cook Then the [...]

    14. 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 freed [...]

    15. I ve read quite a few historical romances over the years but very few can really pull you into the story in such a way that you feel you re actually living each moment of the characters lives The Quaker and the Rebel by Mary Ellis is just such a novel.We are reintroduced to Emily Harrison, the plucky protagonist from the prequel short story Romance on the River, who is now embarking on a whole new life She is headstrong, determined and very independent for a woman of her status and upbringing an [...]

    16. Another Christian fiction series, giving the perspective of life in Civil War times This particular book was well written and held my interest from the moment Madeline reprimanded the soldiers in blue who had the audacity to trample her flowers because they were concerned with reading their maps and determining some battle strategies outside her little town west of Gettysburg in 1863

    17. The Quaker and the Rebel by Mary Ellis is the first book in the Civil War Heroines series I enjoyed this book, and I loved how the author was able to skip over huge sections of time without losing the continuity of the story She spanned four years in a single book Pretty impressive How Emily grows, changes, and matures is one of the best parts of the story She realizes life isn t as easy to figure out as she thought, and Alexander becomes firm in his faith.Emily Harrison, a Quaker, moves from t [...]

    18. 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 [...]

    19. Emily Harrison grew up in Ohio and once her parents died in an accident and the home she lived in was sold in foreclosure she was alone and had to find a way to support herself She decides to take a position as a governess with a doctor s family in Virginia Her duties are to teach Margaret and Annie manners and their lessons as well.Being brought up a Quaker she is not used to the drinking, gambling, swearing or other things that go on in fancy houses What she wants to do is just continue the wo [...]

    20. This was an entertaining story featuring a strong, sassy heroine who was easy to like She was both opinionated and brave, but also could be incredibly self conscious and awkward, so she felt incredibly human I liked Alex, too, but he was of a rake in the beginning and I liked him as he started to change He really had fallen away from his faith and I wished there would have been in the story showing his return and showing Emily s faith as personal rather than being all about being a Quaker The [...]

    21. What happens when a yankee Quaker and a southern reb get together Read the book Recently I was introduced to Mary Ellis Civil War series with Romance on the River, the prequel to The Quaker and the Rebel and I was immediately hooked on Civil War romances What a shock for me Until recently, I had never read a Civil War novel that I had truly enjoyed I certainly can t say that now This week I discovered that Civil War romances are just as exciting as other genres at least those by Mary Ellis Just [...]

    22. I liked this story It s different, not your stereotypical North vs South Civil War romance The hero is a southern aristocrat and the heroine is a northern farmer s daughter who happens to be an abolitionist to boot Plenty of drama right there Toss in the Underground Railroad, a clandestine cavalry unit, some freed slaves and it just gets better.Historically speaking, it s a little shaky in a couple of areas, but nothing that seriously detracts from the story It was just enough to make my inner h [...]

    23. I enjoyed this book although at times I felt like I was getting bogged down in history But the history only led to the richness of the story I also learned a few things along the way Emily and Alexander come from 2 different worlds and both have secrets Big ones that could threaten all they hold dear But through it all their unexpected love continues to grow Although Emily does her best to fight it, for Alexander it is love at first sight Even when both feel betrayed by the other they cannot den [...]

    24. This is one of the best Civil War novels I ve ever read I don t usually enjoy Civil War stories much because of the whole brother against brother issue But this story was entertaining along with the heartbreak Not only do you have the Quaker religious aversion to war but you mix in the Underground Railroad for the North and capturing of supplies and horses, etc for the South Emily has fallen for Alexander but can t admit it Alexander has fallen for Emily and though it s quite a surprise to him, [...]

    25. Personally, I didn t feel as if the two characters really loved each other Honestly, how much time did they spend with each other Barely a few pages They talk here and there, but I never got a reason why they were in love In fact, I found out heroine Emily to be among the worst sort She was insulting Her entire I never touch anything that slaves hands have touch was meant to be enlightened, but it came off as snobbish She did all she could to push her views on others because she was always right [...]

    26. 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 th [...]

    27. I had the privilege of reading Mary Ellis first book in her Civil War historical romance series, The Quaker and the Rebel I fell in love with Ms Ellis style through her many Amish series, and her ability to interweave God s truth through believable characters and a grabbing storyline She uses that same gift and crafts the beginning of another great series, this time set in the Civil War period of American history I love how she creates strong characters, both men and women, people I would love t [...]

    28. I felt like I was dropped in the middle of a story that had already started, and was expected to catch up without any explanation as to what was going on The characters were flat and the action events which made up the plot tended to be very sudden Not sudden as in Oh, interesting plot twist there , but sudden as in Wait, what just happened Did I miss something It took about 150 pages, but I did eventually start to feel that I had caught up with the characters and the story and was able to enjoy [...]

    29. Emily and Alexander are about as opposite as two people can be, a Quaker abolitionist and a southern gentleman helping the confederacy Despite having very different viewpoints on the Civil War, they must learn to live in the same household, as she is the governess for his nieces The story held my interest, but I did not give it five stars because I found a couple of things in the story not quite believable, such as the almost too perfect acceptance the Benningtons gave Emily, even after they dis [...]

    30. Weird coincidence I finished reading this one on Aug 15, the birthday of my niece Ginger, who is the cover model for the Quaker I haven t read a lot of recently written historical romances, and so this one seemed overly politically correct to me And, with no real ta dah of lovemaking when the Quaker and the Rebel finally connect, it left me a little bored And, I had to wonder were harvest festivals and balls still happening in the Shenandoah Valley during the Civil War But, I will forever have a [...]
