Five Stars *****
This is Debbie Lynne's debut full length novel! What a page turner!!! It was hard to turn off my Kindle each night as I was reading Sword of Forgiveness. Set in medieval times, our heroine, Lady Brithwin (isn't that a pretty name?) has known much sorrow in her life. Her abusive father has died and now she can avoid the tortures he inflicted on her. She's being forced into a marriage with a man she doesn't know - Royce. Meanwhile our hero, Royce, returns from a horrific battle to find his entire family dead. The evidence is said to point evil-doers from Brithwin's castle as having done the deed. And now, Royce learns he is to marry her! He's not too happy about that and seeks to get to the bottom of his family's murders. In the meanwhile, his uncle, as well as his brother's fiance, Clarice, stir up trouble. And someone is trying to cause damage to both Royce and Brithwin.
This book reminded me very much of Julie Garwood's Scottish books, but is a Christian historical romance not secular and is clean reading. Wonderful writing throughout although I did get a little upset with both Royce and Brithwin for being rather clueless about one of the antagonists in the story. This story should make the Christian bestseller list for historical romance! I expect it to be on my Best of 2015 list next December!!!
