An Uncertain Choice #5
By Jody Hedlund
In A Loyal Heart, we were introduced to Lady Olivia of Ulster and now we discover what became of her younger sister Lady Isabelle. Lady Isabelle, Countess of Ulster, is known for her delicate beauty but her late father's treachery has brought the shame of the king's shunning upon the family name. With few choices, Lady Isabelle is being pressured to marry Sir Thomas Neville. His wealth will stabilize her own struggling lands and provide the finances she no longer possesses.
But Isabelle's arrival in Pembroke brings forth peasant dissatisfaction against Sir Thomas catching Isabelle in its wake. Sir Thomas's response and cruelty convince Izzy that she cannot contemplate a marriage to such a man. Escaping Castle Pembroke leaves Izzy alone, lost, and hunted. Sir Thomas is not about to allow his plans to be thwarted.
Cole Warwick is determined to convince Sir Thomas to listen to the peasant's concerns and complaints and if open rebellion is necessary so be it. But when soldiers take to the woods he fears that the rebels are the target of their search, he never imagined that the hurt young woman he found is the true target.
As Izzy recovers she has a chance to truly understand the peasant life something she had never before had any occasion to do. Interactions with her own people were usually through an intermediary. Hiding as a peasant though places those caring for her in danger if her subterfuge is discovered. As she gets to know the Warwick family Izzy finds herself drawn towards Cole, but marriage between nobility and peasantry can never be. Cole could never provide the finances Izzy so desperately needs. And if he discovers who she truly is he may hate her for the noble title she holds.
A Worthy Rebel is the final book in the An Uncertain Choice series. The characters are interesting as they deal with what life has given them. Cecil, who was in the previous book makes another appearance in this one and the reader is left in doubt as to his fate. I also liked Cole's mother Thea and found the backstory of parents to be quite interesting. And for those who enjoy the Duke of Rivenshire he makes an appearance in this one at a most appropriate moment (hint, hint there is a battle). The final outcome is one that the reader will not expect (yes, there is a happy ending but it is what leads up to it that proves most intriguing.
Written for the young adult/teen audience all fans of Jody Hedlund's work will enjoy this one. Though over 300 pages the book doesn't feel long and is easy to follow through its intrigues and twists. And the cover I love the dress!
It was so fun to see Izzy get her own story and stop living in the shadow of her sister. As much as I love Olivia, I've always had a soft spot for the younger sisters. And I was so pleased to see Cecil again! I love him to pieces.
This is probably my least favorite book of the series, though I enjoyed it immensely. And I think it was because of Cole. He was an okay hero, but I didn't really connect with him. I really liked Posy and Thea though.
On a whole, this book- this entire series- is so good, sweeping and dramatic and romantic. I'm serious, go read all of them.
I received a free copy of this book from the author, all opinions, however, are my own.
The characters from the primary to secondary are terrific. This book stands very well on its own, but I highly recommend reading the series. All the books have a terrific gem of truth on which to think and great stories to enjoy. The characters from those stories make appearances in this one.
The book is so incredibly well done. I’m thrilled to have a YA series that is clean and teaches morality and purity. Teen reads that I want my daughter to have are very hard to find.
As a side note, the cover is just as beautiful in person! :)
