“For Love and Honor” ~ Book Review

Mar 20, 2017 by

Welcome back to Rachel’s Back Talk! I’m so glad you could join me again. Today I am reviewing Jody Hedlund’s, For Love & Honor.

As is my custom, if I could ask Jody one question about For Love & Honoe it would be — “What was your favorite part of Sir Bennet’s and Lady Sabine’s bantering relationship?” And if you want to know why I asked that question, I guess you’ll just have to read the book to find out!

And without further ado, onto Rachel’s Back Talk!

From the Back Cover: 

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?

Jody Hedlund never disappoints and I absolutely loved the conclusion to her medieval YA series! I always loved Sir Bennet and wondered what would happen in his love story. Each of the books draws the knight and his heroine into some unimaginable danger. And let me tell you, once you are enveloped into the thick of it, the book is very hard to put down!

Lady Sabine was my favorite! I loved her headstrong personality and the need she felt to protect those in love. Because she was hiding something, that gave her a fierceness that forced her to protect herself from those she might eventually care about.

And then there was Sir Bennet who was the honorable knight. While in some aspects it appeared that he was protecting himself, as the story moved along, Bennet is most concerned about protecting those he loves. While it may appear he is just being honorable, Bennet and Sabine eventually develop a beautiful friendship.

The courage that the people in that time had to display — through sieges, highway robberies, torture methods, and battles — is remarkable! When time grows tight, the true feelings of those in close proximity gives way. And the result is something beautiful!
