The Unveiling (Age of Faith, #1) by Tamara Leigh Book Review
Blurb from the book:
12th century England: Two men vie for the throne: King Stephen the usurper and young Duke Henry the rightful heir. Amid civil and private wars, alliances are formed, loyalties are betrayed, families are divided, and marriages are made.
For four years, Lady Annyn Bretanne has trained at arms with one end in mind—to avenge her brother’s murder as God has not deemed it worthy to do. Disguised as a squire, she sets off to exact revenge on a man known only by his surname, Wulfrith. But when she holds his fate in her hands, her will wavers and her heart whispers that her enemy may not be an enemy after all.
Baron Wulfrith, renowned trainer of knights, allows no women within his walls for the distraction they breed. What he never expects is that the impetuous young man sent to train under him is a woman who seeks his death—nor that her unveiling will test his faith and distract the warrior from his purpose.
Yeah, I couldn't put it down; SERIOUSLY!!! If you like Christian novels and you like medieval settings, then you will love The Unveiling! It is full of action, revenge, mysteries that need unraveling, and yeah, there is romance too! Ms. Leigh has a way with words because everything flowed beautifully. The characters had distinct personalities and I found myself sympathizing with each main character at certain points. The "lessons" that were taught by Wulfrith to Annyn were priceless and I loved how they were turned around in the end! I am so excited this is going to be a series because this book was awesome! A nice thing to note is that this is NOT a cliffhanger! They drive me nuts! A fabulous read, The Unveiling is a five star book! C'mon, give this Christian book a try! :^)
You can pick up The Unveiling via Amazon.
