Historical Romance Book Review: If Not for Thee
Publisher's Description"With only three days to decide her fate, Margaret Main must make a choice: concede to the demands of her parents, or keep the vow she made to her beloved sister-in-law. The answer is simple, the solution less so. For to keep her word and her freedom, she must marry the only man she’s ever loved, with the knowledge he may never love her in return.
Holdwell Estate is his home, the place of his youth—his future. To keep it, Marcus Wells must find a woman willing to marry him by morning. For years he was warned against giving away his heart, against the damage love would surely bring upon him. But this woman is far too lovely, far too spirited and kind. How can he keep himself from giving away the one thing he knows, once gone, will be lost forever..."
If Not for Thee, by Amber Lynn Perry, is a beautifully
written historical fiction novella that is as charming as it is irresistible.
This Daughter's of his Kingdom Novella is a definitive example that good things really do come in small
packages. From the richly detailed setting, to the delightfully captivating
characters, to the thoroughly entertaining plot, If Not for Thee contains all the
wonderful reading enjoyment that would typically be found in a story much
longer in length.
With each well-chosen word and each well-crafted
sentence, Ms. Perry has skillfully created a novella that combines alluring
romance, deeply-felt emotions, and captivating circumstances into a remarkably
touching story that abounds with warmth and heart. It is with great joy and
enthusiasm that I recommend this novella to all readers. It is certainly a
story that I will be rereading and savoring often.
This truly special novella features a lovely romance that is not only clean, but also celebratory of the devotion and passion that can be felt between a husband and a wife. To enjoy the romantic elements of this book is to be reminded of the unconditional and everlasting love that our God has for each one of us. Like the characters in this book, we can find comfort and hope in the powerful reality that we are chosen, we are protected, and we are loved with a fierce adoration.
