Book Review of Chivalrous by Dina Sleiman

Chivalrous is Dina Sleiman's second book in her Valiant Hearts series.  The back cover of the book gives an excellent description of what to expect in this story:

"Strong and adventurous Gwendolyn Barnes longs to be a knight like her chivalrous brothers, but her parents view her only as a marriage pawn. When her domineering father makes plans to see her wed to a brutish man, Gwendolyn must fight for her future. 

She's surprised, however, for that clash to include a handsome, good-hearted newcomer. Allen of Ellsworth arrives in Edendale searching for his place in the world, but he finds in Gwendolyn the most unexpected of women. 

Tournaments, intrigue, and battles--along with twists and turns aplenty--await these two as they struggle to find love, identity, and their true destinies."

This book is geared towards teenage girls.  With the strong female character, I think it is an good choice for a teenage girl to read.  Lady Gwendolyn proves that girls can be or do anything they want if they put their mind to it.  I think it would be appropriate for girls ages 15 and up.

*I received this book in exchange for an honest review from Bethany House Publishers.*
