Author: Sarah Holman
Series: Tales of Taelis #1
~ MY REVIEW ~
Adventures and Adversities by Sarah Holman was a sweet story with really an amazing message!
Peasants, troubling times, devious plots, and unexpected changes... A sweet story of love. And an awesome spiritual theme. I enjoyed reading of Alditha, the main character, amidst the medieval-like, fantasy world she lives in. I love the medieval era, and that was the feel that Sarah Holman gave this book!
I liked William and his little sister Eleanor. I was expecting a different relationship for Alditha, but hers with William felt real and just was so cute. *smiles* Marian was really sweet. And the glimpses of Alditha's family we got were interesting.
The spiritual theme; awesome, as I mentioned above. It sort of dealt with praising and trusting God even amidst sorrow or hard times. And also that its alright to feel sad and cry. God cries with us. But life is a gift. And bitterness is not the choice to make. So yes! It was convicting and encouraging! I love to struggle and grow with characters ... to admire and learn something from their faith. So neat! *smiles*
William's journey with the sailors was interesting for sure! I like how the noble daughter ties in with that part, haha!
Yes ... so, neat story. I look forward the reading book two in the series, Brothers and Betrayal. Or colonial historical novel, A Different Kind of Courage. Both by Sarah Holman, and they both sound great! *grins*
