Review: For Love and Honor by Jody Hedlund

For Love and HonorI have loved each of the stories in the An Uncertain Choice series. The books can be read as stand alone novels or enjoyed as a collection. They are perfect for teens and adults, alike. As wonderful as each novel has been, For Love and Honor is my favorite of the three!

The way Lady Sabine felt about herself throughout most of the novel really caught at my heart. Not only did she view herself as plain when compared to others, she just knew that no one could ever love her with the terrible skin blemish she hid beneath her glove.

Sir Bennet caught at my heart for completely different reasons! I admired him for his good intentions in trying to help his family recover from devastating financial conditions. I also thought he did an admirable job in trying to get to know Sabine. He was a kind and honorable man and I loved seeing him begin to realize that he cared for Sabine. However, there were a couple of times that he simply did or said the exact wrong thing to Sabine, causing her much angst! How very human and real he was in those moments. These two characters had great chemistry on the pages.

This story reminds us that no one is perfect, except for God, and that the outside appearance is not what is important to Him. An excellent message for everyone to remember. For Love and Honor was truly a joy to read from beginning to end. I could hardly set this book down! I’m looking forward to hearing my teen’s thoughts on it once she reads it.

(5 stars)

I received a complimentary copy of this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own.


For Love and HonorLady 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?
