Courageous by Dina L. Sleiman

★★★★★
Goodreads | Amazon
Valiant Hearts: Where adventure and romance meet.

Inspired by the vision of the Young Lady Sapphira, Rosalind of Ipsworth joins a group of men, women, and children as a defender of the cross, seeking to free captives from prisons near Tripoli. She gladly gives herself to the cause, as she's haunted by a tragic mistake and no longer deserves such joys as marriage and family might bring.

Sir Randel Penigree was reared to serve in the church, but dreams of protecting the innocent as a knight. Joining a crusade to escape humiliation at home, he finds himself drawn to Rosalind as they partner to train and protect a group of young adolescents. When they face political machinations, danger, and an unknown enemy bent on their destruction, they are forced to reconsider their priorities and the very nature of the God they serve.

The third book in Dina L. Sleiman’s Valiant Hearts series, Courageous provides a satisfying conclusion to the series—full of adventure and romance—as Rosalind of Ipsworth (from Chivalrous) joins a crusade and ventures east. Sleiman tells the story well, providing great historical detail, surrounding Rosalind with a perfect cast of characters (especially the male main character, Sir Randel Penigree), and including great themes of redemption and forgiveness through it all. I highly enjoyed Courageous and recommend it to readers looking for an inspirational and romantic adventure.

Thanks to Bethany House, I received a copy of Courageous and the opportunity to provide an honest review. I was not required to write a positive review, and all the opinions I have expressed are my own.
