A Defense of Honor Review


 About the Book
Forced to run for her life, Kit FitzGilbert finds herself in the very place she swore never to return to--a London ballroom. There she encounters Lord Graham Wharton, who believes Kit holds the key to a mystery he's trying to solve. As much as she wishes that she could tell him everything, she can't reveal the truth without endangering those she loves. (Goodreads)

My Thoughts

I have so enjoyed Hunter's novels that I jumped at the chance to read this one! As the start of a new series this book starts with a great cast of characters. As per typical Hunter style, this book was full of humor but also truth and heart. Kit is a wonderful character and her journey in her personal life very well written. Graham and the children in the book take the story to another level and right when you think you have it all figured out, the story takes a turn. I loved that not everything was black and white right away. I loved how grace was a huge aspect of the story and while this book deals with illegitimate children in history I found many things discussed to be relevant today. I think more emphasis should have been put on the part of repentance. Yes, as Christians grace is important, but one part of the story a young girl doesn't show much repentance on letting herself get carried away with a young man. Now the men that forced themselves on women, that is entirely different.  For the young folks that read this book, I think perhaps in this part of the book it could have been more clear or explained differently. But all that to say I couldn't put this book down and whether Hunter is a new to you author, or a longtime favorite I highly recommend! 

Five stars.
