Like most young girls, The Princess of Daireann dreams of finding a handsome prince who will love her and cherish her forever but Lady Airell discovers that this may not happen for her. To save her family and her kingdom, she must make a decision that will require great sacrifice and perhaps doom her to a life with a man who doesn't love her as she deserves.
Lady Airell's Choice is labeled as a Christian medieval romance so there are kings, castles, adventure, and danger. There is also good versus evil and a powerful message of hope, faith, forgiveness, and redemption. I especially liked that author Rachel Skatvold provides Airell with a deep trust in God as she makes her choice and I appreciate that this trust serves to remind each of us that "in all things God works for the good of those who love Him". (Romans 8:28)
Lady Airell's Choice is the first book in the Ladies of Ardena series and I found it to be an entertaining fantasy that should appeal to both young adults and adults.
I received a copy of this book from the author and Celebrate Lit. I was under no obligation to write a positive review and these are my own thoughts and opinions.
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

More from RachelThe Ladies of Ardena Series has been by far my favorite series to write because the stories are adventurous fast-paced tales with themes of faith, hope and redemption. While I am more well-known for my contemporary western and small-town romance series, I have always been interested in history and fascinated with the medieval time period. Although Ardena is a fictional land, it is inspired by Irish and Scottish culture, in honor of my ancestors. Each book is also inspired by one of my six nieces and is dedicated to them. For that reason, these stories have a special place in my heart.
