Worthy of Legend by Roseanna M White is the third and final book in the Secrets of the Isles series. It tells the story of Lady Emily Scofield and Lord Telford. For the first two books in the series , these two characters remained in the background.
I enjoyed reading Emily and Bram’s story. In Worthy of Legend, Emily became more than the shy woman who had been intimidated and abused by her family. She became a woman who was determined to do the right thing regardless of the consequences, a woman who chose to love even those from whom she’d only received hate.
Bram had been portrayed as Lizzie’s slightly overbearing older brother. The grumpy bear who couldn’t be pleasant before noon but he was so much more. This book captures his heart and explained the reason for his behavior.
The romance between Emily and Bram evolved slowly, starting as friendship but eventually becoming worthy of legend.
Readers will be reminded that God loves everyone, even those who set themselves against us as enemies and we are called to love them even as God loves us.
I received an advanced reader’s copy from the publisher through NetGalley; a positive review was not required.
About Worthy of Legend
After a summer of successful pirate-treasure hunting, Lady Emily Scofield and her friends must hide the unprecedented discoveries they’ve made, thanks to the betrayal of her own family. Horrified by her brother, who stops at nothing to prove himself to their greedy father, Emily is forced to take a stand against her family–even when it means being cut off entirely.
Bram Sinclair, Earl of Telford, is fascinated with tales of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table–an interest he’s kept mostly hidden for the last decade. But when a diary is unearthed on the islands that could lead to a secret artifact, Bram is the only one able to piece the legends together.
As Bram and Emily seek out the whereabouts of the hidden artifact, they must dodge her family and a team of archeologists. In a race against time, it is up to them to decide what makes a hero worthy of legend. Is it fighting valiantly to claim the treasure . . . or sacrificing everything in the name of selfless love?
