Sword of Forgiveness (Winds of Change #1) Reviews
I am pleased to have had an opportunity to read Debbie Lynn Costello’s medieval story Sword of Forgiveness. I have been a follower of Ms. Costello’s blog for a few years now and I was really excited that she was having her story published. I very much enjoy medieval stories and there is not a lot out there for the inspirational market. It is my favorite of all time periods to read. And what a story it was. In a time period where women were considered chattel, our heroine Brithwin was determined ...more
Great story line
I loved the historical depiction as well as the vivid descriptions making one feel in the scenes. I liked the romance in a clean manner.
Hard to resist a novel taking place in 1398 England--the land of knights, swords, and damsels. Add the deceit, murder, enemies, and fire, this novel excelled in drama, love, and forgiveness. Brithwin and Royce appear to be denied a chance at happiness.

Not your average sweet medieval romance – this is a faith-filled, deeply moving, gritty and engaging tale of trust in God in every aspect of our lives! Danger and deception lurks around every corner a ...more

This was a good read with romance not sexual content. The characters were well developed. Sometimes these reads are so involved with side characters a person can be lost in the content. This was my first book by this author and I will read more. Enjoy without wondering "if" the language is offensive.
Sword of Forgiveness was one action-packed novel! It was also packed with a turbulent romance, danger, intrigue, and the gospel message. The hero and heroine had to overcome many obstacles to find their happily ever after, and it was quite the journey to get there!
I thought the author did a very good job of immersing the reader in the midieval time period. I also loved the set up for the story, with the two main characters married yet unable to trust each other. There was great tension between t ...more
