Overview

Exiled in shame and wounded in battle, Caden O’Byrne accepts a mission of penance—to search for his healer’s long-lost daughter. At worst, he’ll finally get his death wish. At best, this could be God’s second chance. But the lovely minstrel Sorcha wants no part in him, his newfound God, or the rescue. In fact, she’s robbed him blind—to help finance her work of buying young captives and returning them to their families. She’s also gone into debt and promised to marry a man she doesn’t love—all for the chidlren’s sake. But before she and Caden can sort out the situation, a treacherous murder forces them to run for their lives…together. While Caden’s rekindled faith is tested, Sorcha wonders if his God is real. If so, can a thief like her dare hope for His mercy? And do the two of them have a chance of reaching home—Sorcha’s real home—alive?

I loved this series! Following this family kept a great continuity and let you get to know the characters in more and more depth! Who'd have thought after the first novel that Caden would be my favorite brother!!! Just go ahead and get Rebel now too because you'll want to read all three!! Is it a challenging read NO! it's enjoyable. One of those books you curl up with over a cup of tea at the end of a long day and simply enjoy.

This was in my top three books I've read so far this year...an amazing work of fiction. The story of Sorcha's search for her roots--who she is, where she belongs, and who she loves, drew me in and held me captive. The characters are beautifully drawn, the plot and dialogue never drag, and I loved the interaction between the variety of characters. Good action, adventure, and a glimpse into an era not often written about. I didn't know there was a "book 1" when I read this one, and while I did miss a little background and would recommend you DO read book 1, I still thoroughly enjoyed this one. I've read very little of this author's work in the past, but am now a die-hard fan. I bought the first book in this series and plan to read it and the one that comes after. I HIGHLY Recommend this series, this book and this author!!

The Brides of Alba series by Linda Windsor was just as terrific as her first series. Great character development, built into rich historical detail. You are quickly in another time and place! The romance and faith are strong in all three novels. Enough to make you blush and laugh, but not so much to make you nervous of your mom finding your book! Love them all.
