In Chivalrous by Dina L. Sleiman, Gwendolyn does not want to get married, especially to the cruel man her father has chosen for his power and title. She would rather become a knight and help those who are in need. Alan with his humble background has just been knighted, and through a series of events is chosen to marry the Duchess after the Duke is murdered, despite his feeling for Gwendolyn. These two have to learn to trust God with their circumstances, deal with their pride, and figure out what to do about their feelings for each other.
I enjoyed this book, even though I had to suspend thoughts of reality as I read it -- or maybe because I had to. I mean, no woman could hold her own against a trained knight as Gwendolyn did, but it still makes an entertaining story. But watching Gwendolyn and Alan struggle with their thoughts of what God's will for them was, that was a nice dose of reality -- because what Christian hasn't done that?
I want to thank Bethany House for my review copy of this book, but my opinions are my own.
First, I am a child of God, adopted into His family through the blood of His Son Jesus Christ. Second, I am helpmeet to my husband John of sixteen years. Third, I am mother to Sarah Beth who is ten years old, to Daniel who turned nine in February, to Rachel who turned seven at the end of January, to Mary who turned five in December, and to Hannah who turned one in February.
