In 1783 peace has been declared, but war still rages in the heart of Lark Benton.
Never did Lark think she’d want to escape Emerson Fielding, the man she’s loved all her life. But when he betrays her, she flees Williamsburg for Annapolis, taking refuge in the nation’s temporary capital. There Lark throws herself into a new circle of friends who force her to examine all she believes.
Emerson follows, determined to reclaim his betrothed. Surprised when she refuses to return with him, he realizes that in this new nation he has come to call his own, duty is no longer enough. He must learn to open his heart and soul to something greater—before he loses all he should have been fighting to hold.

I have long been a fan of Roseanna White, but had not read her earlier book, Love Finds You in Annapolis, Maryland. As it has just been re-packaged and published as A Heart’s Revolution, I was very interested to read it, but unsure with how it would compare with her more recent and longer novels that I hold in high esteem. I need not have worried. I loved this story. It has it all, an unconventional swoon-worthy romance, fabulous supporting cast of secondary characters, well-researched historical detail and a spiritual thread woven into the story that is just as relevant today.
In A Heart’s Revolution, the reader will find a remarkable heroine in Lark Benton. She at first appears quiet and unassuming, but finds inner strength and spirit as circumstances force her on a journey, not only physical but spiritual as well. Not only does she seek God’s will for her path, she also finds the strength to defend her inner convictions and fight for the rights of others. Ms. White’s love of history and her attention to detail brings to life the post-Revolutionary Annapolis for her readers.
