Book Tour: This Rebel Heart by Katherine Locke| Spotlight

Welcome to my stop on the TBR and Beyond Tours Book Tour for This Rebel Heart by Katherine Locke. I haven’t read anything by Katherine Locke before or a book set in Hungary. That, along with not having known anything about the Hungary revolution, has me very interested in picking this up. Interested in people’s thoughts on the book: be sure to scroll all the way to the bottom to see the tour schedule for other content creators.

Synopsis:

A tale set amid the 1956 Hungarian revolution in post-WWII Communist Budapest.

In the middle of Budapest, there is a river. Csilla knows the river is magic. During WWII, the river kept her family safe when they needed it most–safe from the Holocaust. But that was before the Communists seized power. Before her parents were murdered by the Soviet police. Before Csilla knew things about her father’s legacy that she wishes she could forget.

Now Csilla keeps her head down, planning her escape from this country that has never loved her the way she loves it. But her carefully laid plans fall to pieces when her parents are unexpectedly, publicly exonerated. As the protests in other countries spur talk of a larger revolution in Hungary, Csilla must decide if she believes in the promise and magic of her deeply flawed country enough to risk her life to help save it, or if she should let it burn to the ground.
