A Daring Sacrifice
By: Jody Hedlund
From the Book:
In a reverse twist on the Robin Hood story, a young medieval maiden stands up for the rights of the mistreated, stealing from the rich to give to the poor. All the while, she fights against her cruel uncle who has taken over the land that is rightfully hers. Forced to live in the woods and hide with the poor people she's grown to love, she works to save and protect them, but she never anticipates falling in love with the wealthy knight who represents all she's come to despise.
Juliana Wessex was a noblelady by birth but her wicked uncle, Lord Wessex, had her father killed so he could take over his land, Juliana’s rightful inheritance. He thought in the process Juliana had been killed too, but her Bulldog, her trusted friend helped her to escape as her father was dying. She lived as the Cloaked Bandit for 3 years among the poor people, providing basic essentials for them by stealing from the rich. They constantly lived in hunger and fear of being found by Lord Wessex. Unfortunately (or maybe fortunately) the day she robbed Lord Collin Goodrich her identity was found revealed all because of her red hair and life for her and the peasants was never the same.
MS Hedlund is one of my favorite authors. Her books are filled with fairy-tale-like stories that are sure to capture your attention young or old, especially if you are a romantic at heart. This book, A Daunting Sacrifice” is one your young adult will be sure to love since it takes place in the times of kings, knights, lords and ladies. Who can resist a book filled with noble Knights and a lady in distress? With MS Hedlund being the author you can be assured this book is very appropriate for your young adult to read without fear of explicit language. I highly recommend this book.
