Item description for Yankee Bride Rebel Bride (Brides Of Montclair #5) by Jane Peart...

Publishers Description For some reason at just that moment, Garnet glanced up at the house and thought she saw a shadowy figure standing at the window of the downstairs master bedroom in the wing Malcolm shared with Rose. With a little clutching sensations, Garnet wondered if Rose had seen her talking with Malcolm and if she minded that Garnet's had been the last farewell. Garnet shrugged and walked back into the garden. What difference did it make one way or the other? Malcolm belonged to Rose in a way he could never belong to her. All she had of Malcolm were memories of by-gone days. Suddenly she remembered Malcolm's parting words: 'Comfort Rose if you can, and be kind to her and little Jonathan.' Garnet gave her head a careless toss as if casting off such tiresome requests. Rose and Jonathan were not her responsibility! And she had no intention of taking them on, in spite of what Malcolm had asked. Besides, there were plenty of servants to care for Jonathan, and Rose seemed content enough with her endless Bible reading and piano playing and walks in the woods. It is not any concern of mine, Garnet assured herself. 'I have enough to do just taking care of myself!' -- Yankee Bride and Rebel Bride is set against the turbulent backdrop of the Civil War South, and chronicles the life of Garnet Cameron, whose plan to marry the man of her dreams, Malcolm Montrose, is thwarted when he chooses a Northern bride. On the rebound, Garnet married Malcolm's brother, thus entwining the lives of all four at Montclair, the magnificent ancestral Montrose family home.

Good follow-up books of the series May 29, 2009
I have read all of the books of this series and this was as wonderful as the first ones. Author has a great way with words which makes the book come alive.
Yankee Bride and Rebel Bride Jul 11, 2005
It did remind me of Gone with the Wind, but that is part of what makes this story so enticing. The war between the Union and Confederates showed that no family was left unscathed by the war for freedom. While I was enthralled with Rose, Garnet seemed to out shine her in the end. Rose is remembered through this tragedy while Garnet suffers from the wish she made years earlier. It was not a fairy tale ending like those so-far. In the end, it is well thought out and practical.
Do Your Research! Apr 24, 2005
One of my greatest pet peeves in historical fiction is coming across facts that are blatantly wrong. If you can't take the time to make sure your facts are correct then don't write historical fiction. The prime example in this book comes when the author states that Stonewall Jackson was killed at Gettysburg. Even amateur Civil War historians know this is incorrect.
Aside from the accuracy issues, I did enjoy this book.
Heart Wrenching Dec 19, 2004
In this book Peart conveys bawdy flirtation and titillating suspense in an age of Civil War. The insufferable Garnet in her blind love for Malcolm Montrose--wreaks havoc for Malcolm's bride Rose Montrose. She then proves her ruthlessness when after poor Rose dies--she dreams of a life with Malcolm. I was glad when he returned home years later, with a new bride! But, I had to pity Rose, since her ruthless rival outlives her!

I could not wait to put this book down!!! I think the author got mixed up and just turned Gone With the Wind in to her editor. The plot is very similar and so are the names. As I was reading this book, I found myself wanting to read Gone With the Wind so I could get the facts straight. Just pass this one up and go with the original.
