For three years, the cloaked bandit has terrorized Wessex, robbing the nobility by knife-point 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 her childhood —and challenges her to stay on her 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.
Filled with adventure, romance, and true sacrifice, A Daring Sacrifice is an intriguing story, in which Jody Hedlund did an amazing job bringing her characters to life. This book has a unique twist on the Robin Hood story–the main leading lady is the one stealing from the rich and giving to the poor.
A Daring Sacrifice is the second book in Jody Hedlund’s An Uncertain Choice Series. The book is well worth taking the time to read. As a matter of fact, I was so intrigued by the plot and the characters, that I finished it in a day. Sadly, the only downfall of the book is that we all will have to wait and see what Jody Hedlund comes up with next.
