“An Uncertain Choice,” by Jody Hedlund

I recently had the chance to read A Uncertain Choice, by Jody Hedlund. This fiction book was released on March 3, 2015 by Zondervan.

About this book (from the back cover):

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.

My Verdict:

This is a wonderful fairy tale written for a YA audience, and even though I’m older than the YA demographic, I definitely enjoyed it! The main character, Rosemarie, is very sympathetic, and although I didn’t wonder too much about the “mystery” of which knight she would choose, I wasn’t sure about who the real villain would be until the end. And, even though the story is light and quick to read, there are moments of gravity to the story, especially the scenes involving medieval torture methods. The book ties up Rosemarie’s story, but does end with a cliffhanger of sorts, and I assume this is is book one of three, with the other two books following the remaining knights from the competition. This is a good book that I read in one sitting, and can definitely recommend.

If you’d like to check out An Uncertain Choice it is currently on sale for $5.99 for the Kindle version right now (regularly $12.99.) If you prefer a physical copy the paperback version is currently on sale for $11.07. Remember, Amazon’s prices can change at any time.
