I’ve never been a part of a blog tour for the release of a new book. Mostly because I don’t want to commit to promoting it if I haven’t read it yet. But this time after I had read the book to review it, the author asked if I would be willing to be a part of her blog tour. Sure. And so, here we are.
Some dreams will be dashed, and their devotion will be tested.
Dara’s life is full of farm work and worries, especially now that her older brother is a priest in a far off city. Yet she still has time to dream of the life she hopes will someday be. She dreams of marrying her dear friend and the worries of her family ending. Now, the selfishness of one person threatens her very way of life.
Dresden’s initial excitement about living a life devoted to the service of God quickly is dashed on the rocks of reality. The life of a priest is nothing like what he imagined. To make matters worse, he finds out his family back in his home village is on the brink of disaster. Torn between his vows and his love for his family, what will he choose?
There are some powerful truths packed into this book. There is trouble, sorrow, pain, joy and forgiveness. Though set in the days of knights, castles, peasants, and ladies, the lessons learned fit our lives today. I’m not a big fan of medieval times, but I did enjoy this story. The author did a good job of showing God’s love, help, and forgiveness, as well as the dangers of trusting in your own dreams. This is the forth book in the series and I enjoyed how the author pulled character names from the other books into this one.
