Publisher's Summary

Inspired by the true story of John and Abigail Adams.

Massachusetts, 1763.

A love that would shape history forever.

Because she's a woman, higher learning was always closed to Susanna Smith. But her quick mind and quicker tongue never back down from a challenge. And she's determined to marry well, so she'll be able to continue her work with the less fortunate.

Growing up with little to his name, poor country lawyer Benjamin Ross dreams of impacting the world for the better. When introduced to the Smiths he's taken by Susanna's intelligence and independent spirit, but her parents refuse to see him as a suitor for their daughter.

When the life of a runaway indentured servant is threatened, Susanna is forced to choose between justice and mercy, and Ben becomes her unlikely advisor. But drawing closer to this man of principle and intellect lands her in a dangerous, secret world of rebellion and revolution against everything she once held dear.

Suspenseful Story of Courage, Friendship, and Love

If you could sum up Rebellious Heart in three words, what would they be?

Revolution, Courage, Sensuality

Who was your favorite character and why?

Ben was my favorite character because of his conviction and courage.

Have you listened to any of Mary Sarah Agliotta’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I've not listened to any of Mary Sarah Agliotta's other performances, but this one was seamless. It never distracted from the story, only drew me in further. Men's and women's voice were done equally well.

Who was the most memorable character of Rebellious Heart and why?

Susannah was the most memorable in that it was primarily her story and that she underwent the biggest change - from blindly obedient and to courageously principled.
