Always by Jody Hedlund
“Another sip, Your Majesty,” I pleaded, holding out the golden chalice of raspberry-leaf tea.
As much as I love Jody Hedlund’s stories, I initially borrowed this title not for myself but for my daughter (since my calendar is completely packed). However, the aforementioned daughter offered to read part of the story aloud to me as I was driving and then I was hooked. I can’t say no to well-written novellas, y’all!
The young adult genre isn’t usually one I reach for and, as I said, I wasn’t exactly “sitting around with nothing to do” and yet I thoroughly enjoyed this story. I highly recommend Always to all fans of medieval fiction and I plan to purchase a print copy as soon as the book budget allows!
I borrowed this title through the Kindle Unlimited program. The opinions expressed are my own.
