Rhapsody and Rebellion (Enduring Legacy #7) by Aubrey Wynne – Review by Francis O’Sullivan

Rhapsody and Rebellion (Enduring Legacy #7)Rhapsody and Rebellion by Aubrey Wynne
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Rhapsody and Rebellion is the seventh book in the Enduring Legacy series. Each book is by a different author (in this case, Aubrey Wynne), but all focus on the same Scottish family whose mysterious powers are both a blessing and a curse. The books can be read as stand-alone stories, but are connected to each other.
I really liked the grounding in historical events, and the attention to historical detail in the worldbuilding. It definitely falls into the historical fiction bracket for combining history lesson with drama and bringing a time and place to life. For me, the written Scots didn’t quite flow but this may have been because it was only used for certain words. Other than that, I felt thoroughly drawn into the story!
I particularly liked the character Alisabeth – she’s grieving and struggling to find her place in families in the world after losing her husband. She’s sensitive to those around her and generally a well-developed character.
It’s a classic love story, but the historical setting and magic add a unique flavour. If you like romance, and are interested in British history (although mostly focusing on Scotland, we get to see various places in England as well!), this is definitely worth a read! For me, it gets four stars.
