A Daring Sacrifice by Jody Hedlund - Review

I recieved this book from the author in exchange for a fair and honest review

Published: March 1, 2016
Number of pages: 224
Genre: Young Adult, Historical
Series: An Uncertain Choice #2

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.

What did I think of this book:
Jody has done it again with another hit in this story. I enjoyed this book as much as the first one (An Uncertain Choice) if not even more. The twist on Robin Hood made this story fun to read. You not only have adventure but a love story. Another factor of this book that I like is that it has a strong female lead. I think it is good for young women to read about strong females. Jody's knack for storytelling is quite good. It was fun reading about the friendship of Juliana and Collin. It is also nice to see how Juliana grows to love the poor people. You will find yourself turning the pages just as fast as you can read them. It is short enough that you can read it in a weekend but long enough to feel satisified. The auhor does such a good job with her descriptions that you really feel as if you are seeing what she is writing about. This is a good book for not just young adults but for adults as well. I am looking forward to the next book in this series. 

About the author:
Jody Hedlund is an award-winning and bestselling author of inspirational historical romances for both youth and adults.

As a busy mama-writer, she has the wonderful privilege of teaching her crew of 5 children at home. In between grading math papers and giving spelling tests, she occasionally does a load of laundry and washes dishes. When she's not busy being a mama, you can find her in front of her laptop working on another of her page-turning stories.

She loves reading almost as much as she loves writing, especially when it also involves chocolate and coffee.
