This book was very good. Except for Rosemarie. She was a good character, but she really wasn't as strong, but she learned later, and slowly to be strong, and I knew who the villain was right away, and I knew that the one knight was the one that would get her, but over all I think Jody Hedlund did a good job with the story line.

Good book. Obvious who's going to win, but interesting nonetheless.

Ah beg, what a disgrace. NO this book is not TYPICAL of Christian historical fiction (↓) and even more so, it is Antitypical of Jody Hedlund. This is a very different tangent she’s exploring (new, apparent audience) but it was all too much.. .eye rolling, cringe worthy and sappy. I wondered if this book was written as a practical joke or for a juvenile school assignment to illustrate 'true love' to be the person that is ‘kinder then the kindest’, has compassion to feed the poor and gets along with your furry dog. I'm sure there was an *actual* message that the author intended to communicate but whatever noble message was lost in the pretense of it all, the stale fluff, and the frightfully dull dialogue. Meet the anemic heroine who pretended she was grown but still needed to cuddle with her pup to sleep. She was preparing to live a life of holy service to God to fulfill an ancient vow… but then she is suddenly faced with a tantalizing and irresistible option: Fall in love in 30 days (YEP 30) and be free from um, nun-hood. Damn. Girl gets to choose between three worthy and gorgeous knights ..Damn. (ok fine, the idea of three gorgeous worthy men vying for one lady’s affections did hold a certain appeal …but come on now
Really????? Enough already!!

The story was awfully predictable and there was no medieval feel.. let’s throw in a few knights and dukes..and Viola medieval..NOPE. NOPE and NOPE. Honestly this story was terrible. I do not recommend any one to read this book for a medieval /historical fiction fix.

The title is lame. An uncertain choice? An UNCERTAIN choice?? More like A Terrifying Choice That I Hope I Don't Screw Up Royally and Regret. It's about who she's going to marry and live with for the rest of her life! She only gets one month to decide! And all the author came up with was An UNCERTAIN CHOICE?

I could tell who the villain was after the first few pages. I also knew right away which knight she would choose. I never felt the medieval setting. The main character Rosemarie was weak. Over all, very predictable and so boring that I couldn't finish it, as is typical for Christian historical fiction/romance.

Basicly evergthjng Love_Legolas_111 I agree with except I found I could really relate to Rosemary. It was a fun read but fairly predictable.

[SPOILER ALERT]
First of all, this is my first book by Jody Hedlund. Secondly, I finished it in a day and a half. With that said...let's get this review underway. ;)
I enjoyed the storyline! Medieval times, true love, handsome knights, a contest to win a girl's hand...ah, such an fun ride! Everything I want in this kind of a book! No wonder I flew through it with ease! Rosemarie was an interesting heroine. Although I felt a little detached from her in the beginning (as she's not too relatable of a character), I found her lonely plight and confusion regarding love realistic. Her wavering will to rely on the abbot or take control herself carried the story a little, and I grew to like her. And then, there's Derrick, our main male. Ah, Derrick...dang, I loved him. Such a great character. As I read more and more, I grew to like him more and more, much the same as Rosemarie. He was well-rounded, honorable, kind, courageous, passionate...when you think "knight", well, you'd think of Derrick. The villain of the story was revealed a little too soon (as a possibility), but I never expected him to be so cruel in the end. The climatic moments felt real, and were done well. As with many romance books, the author does much more telling than showing when it comes to the main characters feelings, but I guess I have to expect that. Anyway, a nice, clean romantic novel that satisfied my thirst for romance. Also, apparently this is the first book in a series, so...I'll be keeping my eyes peeled for that. ;)
Oh, I also recently read the e-novella prequel, The Vow, detailing Rosemarie's former relationship with Thomas. Cute, but...Derrick won me over first. ;)
