|Let’s all ignore the fact that the castle on my graphic actually isn’t in Great Britain. xD
Who doesn’t love a good sigh worthy novel every once in awhile? For Love and Honor by Jody Hedlund proved to be that and much, much more.
My Rating: Five Strands of Blue Pearls Out of Five
Back Cover Blurb (Taken From Amazon)
Lady Sabine is harboring a skin blemish, one, that if revealed, could cause her to be branded as a witch, put her life in danger, and damage her chances of making a good marriage. After all, what nobleman would want to marry a woman so flawed?
Sir Bennet is returning home to protect his family from an imminent attack by neighboring lords who seek repayment of debts. Without fortune or means to pay those debts, Sir Bennet realizes his only option is to make a marriage match with a wealthy noblewoman. As a man of honor, he loathes the idea of courting a woman for her money, but with time running out for his family’s safety, what other choice does he have?
As Lady Sabine and Sir Bennet are thrust together under dangerous circumstances, will they both be able to learn to trust each other enough to share their deepest secrets? Or will those secrets ultimately lead to their demise?
What I Liked
The characters. Guys, THE CHARACTERS!!! *sighs* Bennet and Sabine captivated me from the moment they stepped onto the pages of the book. Sabine is one of the most relatable characters I’ve read about, and Bennet… He is every bit of the chivalrous and noble knight that one dreams up the word fairytale comes to mind.
Bennet and Sabine’s relationship. I could NOT stop sighing as I read about Sabine and Bennet’s interactions. The two of them together… *sighs again*
The plot. I. Could. Not. Put. This. Book. Down. At. All. I literally finished in four days, and I would’ve finished it sooner if I wasn’t engrossed in researching for my next writing project… Or reading Jane Eyre.
The message. I think it’s one everyone needs to hear, especially in today’s culture. That we are loved unconditionally. That we are beautiful and unique.
The cover. Just look at it. Look at it and flail. *flails with you*
What I Disliked
I can’t think of anything I disliked about this book. I’m serious. If anything, I disliked that it was too short. xD
I would recommend For Love and Honor to every bookworm in the world. It’s that good. I will forever have this book on my bookshelf, along with An Uncertain Choice and A Daring Sacrifice.
