For Love or Loyalty Review!!!

For Love or Loyalty by Jennifer Hudson Taylor

Book Description:
To atone for her father's evil, Lauren Campbell agrees to help Malcolm MacGregor. By the time she realizes she's the bargaining price to free Malcolm's mother from indentured servitude, it's too late.

Malcolm MacGregor only wants to free his family and exact revenge against Duncan Campbell. As the pride and joy of Duncan's life, his daughter Lauren is the perfect answer, but during the voyage to America, her faith continues to witness to Malcolm. He becomes enraptured with her, and upon their arrival, discovers he's sold her into a fate worse than death. Now Malcolm has the dilemma: free his family or rescue Lauren? Time is short and with little means, he needs a miracle.

My Opinion:
Love love love this book!  I was SO blessed by this story!  For love or loyalty is such an adventure and full journey!  Lauren is the kind of Christian woman I want to be and yet this book also holds the reality that even the strongest in Faith have their moments of fear and, sadly, doubt.  It also shows how as humans we can't always see the big picture like God can, but that doesn't mean He leaves us! :)  Starting out in Scotland Jennifer takes us across the sea to America.  The hardships of travel for both the people able to pay and the indentured servants is shown realistically from sickness to danger.  There are many great characters in this as Malcolm and Lauren find friends on and off the ship, but their are also many enemies with terrible intentions.  Through it all God watches over them as He shapes them into the people they need to be through the trials they face and the decisions they make.  Twists and surprises abound within these chapters.  Just when I thought I knew what was going to happen Jennifer threw in another turn that I didn't see coming.  For Love or Loyalty is a great read with adventure, suspense, Faith, love, courage, hope and so much more!  I cannot wait for For Love or Country!!!  This is a MUST READ!!! :)
