I have had the pleasure of being on several launch teams for Roseanna M. White. It is always a bonus to receive a review copy of her books but I would purchase my own copy if I did not receive an ARC. This author has long been on my “Do Not Miss” book list. I need a copy of each one as soon as it is published. It is actually difficult to wait for the next one.
Worthy of Legend may have been my favorite of The Secrets of the Isles series although it would be extremely difficult to choose if pressed to do so. How could one resist the historic setting of the Isles of Scilly, a plot laced with tales of pirates, treasure, and Arthurian legend? Top that off with wonderful characters, adventure and suspense, and a sweet romance featuring the shy and sometimes withdrawn Lady Emily Scofield who prefers to remain in the background.
I loved everything about Worthy of Legend, especially the interactions between Bram and Emily. The King Arthur legends were cleverly woven into the plot as well as the local history and myths. The subtle yet compelling thread of faith held everything together so well.
I am going to miss all the characters for this series that the author managed to breathe such life into. If you have not read anything by Roseanna M. White, why are you waiting? Her books are among the best.
I voluntarily reviewed a copy of this book provided by the author’s launch team through Bethany House, a division of Baker Publishing Group. A favorable review was not required. All views expressed are my own.
ABOUT THE BOOK:
After a summer of successful pirate-treasure hunting, Lady Emily Scofield and her friends are forced to hide the unprecedented discoveries they’ve made, thanks to the betrayal of her own family. Horrified by her brother who stops at nothing to prove himself to their greedy father, Emily is forced to take a stand against her family—even when it means being cut off entirely.
Bram Sinclair, Earl of Telford, is fascinated with tales of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table—an interest he’s kept mostly hidden for the last decade. But when a diary is unearthed in the islands that could lead to a secret artifact, Bram is the only one able to piece the legends together.
As Bram and Emily seek out the whereabouts of the hidden artifact, they must dodge her eager family and a team of archeologists. In a race against time, they must decide what makes a hero worthy of legend—is it fighting valiantly to claim the treasure . . . or sacrificing everything in the name of selfless love?
