For Love & Honor
by Jody Hedlund
One of my favorite times of year is summer. I love the long, late nights staying up reading a good book. That is exactly what happened the night I read this book. I started For Love & Honor, during the morning not thinking I would be so drawn in and ended up staying up late reading the whole thing! This young-adult book had a wonderful storyline and well developed characters. I truly loved how each of the main stars were not flawed. They were strong and independent. That is rare in a book and much appreciated.
The story is one of those that is fairly common for the time period it is set in. Neither character is looking for love or marriage but family obligations push them in that direction. I won't give away the whole story but this one was a bit different in how that all works itself out. Once again, very refreshing. This might be a young adult book but I enjoyed it from cover to cover. I would very much recommend this for teens who love to read because it is very wholesome and you won't have to worry about any mature themes. (Don't let that scare you moms off - this story held it's own without all that business).
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?
