“Rhapsody and Rebellion: Once Upon a Widow” is a lovely story surrounding multiple riots in England and Scotland in the late 18th century. Our hero, Gideon, Earl of Stanfeld, has to take his recently widowed mother, Maeve, back to her home in the Scottish Highlands following a disturbing dream. There he meets the young widow to his cousin, the lovely Alisabeth. I stumbled upon this book recently and hesitated reading it as I don’t normally like to start a series in the middle, however this is not your normal book series. All of the books are written by different authors and occupy different times of the same family line so the books aren’t necessarily in order or follow the same people. The foreward recommends reading the first book to understand the series, but I feel Aubrey Wynne did a wonderful job explaining the back story necessary to understanding her story. I thoroughly enjoyed the characters in this book, especially the headstrong Scottish women! Alisabeth, Maeve and the other women in the family were a joy to read about! They are bold and unashamed by it and I loved it! I also loved the family connection that is shared between select members (I don’t want to give anything away but it is a really neat touch to the story as it is the underlying theme through the series.) All in all, this historical fiction was right up my alley and now I’m itching to read more about this family! So, I give “Rhapsody and Rebellion” five stars!
