Publisher's Book Description

During a time when legends were born . . . 


A wealthy noblewoman with a heart of gold, a wounded knight closed off to love, and the sacrifices for a chalice that can bring healing. 

Lady Karina lives in a convent and expects to become a nun someday. When her wealthy father asks her to help his textile business become more successful by marrying one of the popular Knights of Brethren, Karina complies, ever the dutiful daughter. 

During a royal quest to find the sacred chalice, Torvald is called home to save his family's estate through an arranged marriage to a wealthy maiden. Although willing to do his duty, he's vowed never to give his heart to anyone after watching his father suffer heartbreak over a woman. 

As Torvald weds the kind and lovely Karina, he resists the pull of attraction to his bride. Even though Karina feels the sting of Torvald's rejection, she chooses to love him unconditionally. As he resumes his search for the chalice and puts his life in jeopardy, Karina makes the ultimate sacrifice for him. Will he have the chance to love her in return before it's too late? 

The real story of the Holy Grail continues . . .

My Review

Enriched, by Jody Hedlund, is full of gripping adventure, mystery, and daring acts of courage, making this fourth book in the Knights of Brethren series truly enthralling! Featuring a fresh and creative twist on the medieval stories of the search for the Holy Grail, this novel is wholly engaging and full of heart. Remarkable characters and detailed settings add depth to a story that is rife with surprises. From start to finish, it is a beautifully written book that is entertaining and enjoyable. 

As the story unfolds, the first person perspectives of the two main characters, adds to the immersive nature of this novel. Though the characters grapple with significant insecurities, difficult choices, and unpredictable dangers, they prove the unflagging nature of their bravery, determination, and compassion. In the face of the unknown, the characters boldly pursue a course that leads to fortuitous outcomes for themselves, their families, and their fellow citizens. 

Jody Hedlund’s medieval stories are always brimming with spectacular fantasy elements like legends, knights, maidens, creatures, and lore that captivate the reader. They are also thoughtfully composed, utterly moving, and very memorable. Enriched, like the other books in the series, is a special novel, and I gladly recommend it to all readers.
