Review: An Uncertain Choice

Book Review: An Uncertain Choice, by Jody Hedlund, 4 stars


Due to her parents' promise at her birth, Lady Rosemarie has been prepared to become a nun on the day she turns eighteen. Then, a month before her birthday, a friend of her father's enters the kingdom and proclaims her parents' will left a second choice--if Rosemarie can marry before the eve of her eighteenth year, she will be exempt from the ancient vow.
Before long, Rosemarie is presented with the three most handsome and brave knights in the land. But when the competition for her heart seemingly results in a knight playing foul, she begins to wonder if the convent is the best place after all. If only one of the knights--the one who appears the most guilty--had not already captured her heart.

Genre: historical romance

Publication date: March 2015

Mature content: no

Review:  An Uncertain Choice is a lovely story, just as all the other Jody Hedlund books I've read so far. The characters are very compelling, even if the vow thing seems a bit silly at first - especially seen from our the perspective of our modern mentality. I did find the plot a bit less gripping than other books, with more dull moments - especially those Collin and Bennet spend courting Rosemarie - hence the 4 star rating instead of five.

An Uncertain Choice is part of a series, of which I read only one of the later books (For Love and Honor) and this one, and out of order at that. I can therefore vouch that An Uncertain Choice can be read as a stand alone, though my recommendation would be to read the others too. I haven't read them all yet, but I plan to remedy that really soon (and not in the least because the epilogue of An Uncertain Choice leaves us in a sort of a cliffhanger...)


Happy readings,
