Book Review: Worthy of Legend

About the Book:

1906

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 will stop at nothing to prove himself to their greedy father, Emily is forced to take a stand against her family–even if 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 archaeologists. 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?

My Thoughts:

Worthy of Legend is the third book in the Secrets of the Isles series. You must read book one, The Nature of a Lady, and book two, To Treasure an Heiress, before you read this novel to really get follow the complete arc of the story.

I always enjoy Roseanna White’s novels, but this series was very much my favorite. The introduction of humorous characters like Sheridan and the addition of a treasure hunt were gems within the midst of beautiful writing, excellent character development, themes of growth, transformation, love and forgiveness set within the delightful community of the Isles of Scilly.

I highly recommend this series.

I received a free digital galley of this book in exchange for my honest opinion.
