Book Review: Tried & True

A book was given for review for my honest opinion. No other compensation was given.


About the book: 

Book One in the Wilde at Heart series.

Saddle up for a wildly fun ride with the Wilde sisters!

Kylie Wilde is the youngest sister---and the most civilized. Her older sisters might be happy dressing in trousers and posing as men, but Kylie has grown her hair long and wears skirts every chance she gets. It's a risk---they are homesteading using the special exemptions they earned serving in the Civil War as "boys"---but Kylie plans to make the most of the years before she can sell her property and return to the luxuries of life back East.

Local land agent Aaron Masterson is fascinated with Kylie from the moment her long hair falls from her cap. But now that he knows her secret, can he in good conscience defraud the U.S. government? And when someone tries to force Kylie off her land, does he have any hope of convincing her that marrying him and settling on the frontier is the better option for her future?


About the author: 

Mary Connealy writes fun and lively "romantic comedy with cowboys" for the inspirational market. She is the author of the successful Kincaid Brides, Lassoed in Texas, Montana Marriages, and Sophie's Daughters series, and she has been a finalist for a Rita and Christy Award and a two time winner of the Carol Award. She lives on a ranch in eastern Nebraska with her husband, Ivan, and has four grown daughters.

My Opinion

I love books where the woman is independent and "does everything a man can do". This book was a little of that and a little opposite of that! Kylie has done everything a man can do, including fighting in the Civil War, but she yearns to stop "being a man" and be everything a woman is! It was a fun twist and I loved watching her accept who God has made her and stand up for herself!

Plus, I loved watching the love story unfold between Kylie and Aaron! He is not fooled by her "man act" and sees right through her to her heart!

Mary Connealy is one of my favorite historical fiction authors and she definitely delivered with a great story again with Tried & True. This book also set up the stories for the other books in the series about the others sisters and I just can't wait to read them!
