An Uncertain Choice

You meet Lady Rosemarie in An Uncertain Choice, the latest novel by Jody Hedlund.  You pick up the story in the weeks before Rosemarie's eighteenth birthday.

You were first introduced to Rosemarie in the prequel entitled The Vow.  After her parents become infected with the plague, you see how the fourteen-year old Rosemarie deals with their sudden deaths.  She suddenly learns about the vow her parents made to God in the days before her birth.  They would dedicate their child to a lifetime of service to Him, if they became pregnant!

In the days before her eighteenth birthday, Rosemarie is preparing to enter the convent to begin her days in service to God.  Suddenly, an old friend of her father's enters her kingdom with the news that there is a second choice: Rosemarie must find a man to marry before her eighteenth birthday.  This old friend has brought along three young knights for Rosemarie to meet as she considers this possible change in the plan God has for her in this world.

This is an interesting few weeks to travel with Rosemarie as she learns about each of these young men and thinks about the place God has for her!

I received this book from Zondervan in exchange for my unbiased review
