Book Review: A Daring Sacrifice by Jody Hedlund

A Daring Sacrifice (An Uncertain Choice #2) by Jody Hedlund
Genre: Young Adult (Historical Romance/Christian Fiction)
Date Published: March 1, 2016
Publisher: Zondervan

The only thing harder than fighting for what’s right…is fighting their feelings for each other.

For three years, the Cloaked Bandit has terrorized Wessex, robbing the nobility by knifepoint and a well-placed arrow. But little does anyone know, this bandit is in fact Juliana Wessex, the rightful ruler of the land and a girl her tyrannical uncle—the current Lord Wessex—believes was killed along with her father.

Juliana has become skilled at hiding from Lord Wessex in the forest, using her stolen goods to provide food and shelter to the peasants her uncle has taxed into poverty. But when she robs Collin Goodrich, her red hair betrays her true identity. Lord Collin remembers Juliana from their childhood—and challenges her to stay on his estate for a week in hopes she will leave her thieving ways and become a proper lady once more. Juliana is intrigued by Collin and his charms, but only time will tell if he can overcome her distaste of the nobility—as well as win her heart.

A Daring Sacrifice is the second book in An Uncertain Choice series Jody Hedlund. This reminded me of a Robin Hood story, but this time Robin is a girl named Juliana. We met Collin in the first book, and now we get to know him even more. He doesn't disappoint. This story was very entertaining, and I enjoyed watching Juliana and Collin get to know each other. These two challenge each other and introduce each other to new ideas, plus the teasing is super cute. There was some action thrown in too. This story kept me thoroughly interested in the lives of these characters. I can't wait to get my hands on the next book.

Check out my review of other books in this series!

Winner of the 2016 Christian Book Award for fiction and Christy Award for historical romance, best-selling author Jody Hedlund writes inspirational historical romances for both youth and adults.

Jody lives in central Michigan with her husband, five busy children, and five spoiled cats. Although Jody prefers to experience daring and dangerous adventures through her characters rather than in real life, she’s learned that a calm existence is simply not meant to be (at least in this phase of her life!).

When she’s not penning another of her page-turning stories, she loves to spend her time reading, especially when it also involves consuming coffee and chocolate.
