In this ebook historical romance novella by Jody Hedlund, young Rosemarie finds herself drawn to Thomas, the son of the nearby baron. But just as her feelings begin to grow, a man carrying the Plague interrupts their hunting party. While in forced isolation, Rosemarie begins to contemplate her future—could it include Thomas? Could he be the perfect man to one day rule beside her and oversee her parents’ lands?

Then Rosemarie is summoned back to her castle in haste. The disease has spread, and her family is threatened. And the secret she discovers when she returns could change her future forever.

This novella also serves as a prequel to Jody Hedlund’s An Uncertain Choice.

My Review

I wasn't quite sure what to expect as I began reading The Vow. The main character is in her mid-teens and just beginning her journey to becoming a woman. She experiences her first infatuation, one that holds much promise. However, not everything goes as planned and then gets worse when she is left to deal with a vow that carries vast implications. 

I liked the setting and the way the story flowed from the beginning. This was definitely a prequel and did its job in making me want to read more and find out what will happen to Rosemarie as she figures out her future. I'm not sure what options are even available and how An Uncertain Choice will deal with it all, but I'll definitely be reading it. There is definitely promise here.

Content: Clean

Source: I received a complimentary copy for review from the publisher through NetGalley, which did not affect my review in any way.

An Uncertain Choice is a book I've been highly anticipating (to be released on March 3rd), so I was excited to have the chance to read this novella. There definitely is a lack of books published in the inspirational young adult genre. Here's the cover:
