eBook The Baron's Ring The Baron's Ring is a Christian historical romance novel that adults and young adults alike will like. The story centers around Tristan, the God-fearing Prince of his land, who is worried that his pagan-worshiping brother, Dunstan, will ruin the kingdom. Dunstan falls into the river one day, and Tristan saves him, but ends up getting washed down the river to another kingdom. There, seeing the journey near impossible to make, he settles into life. He finds true love, confronts the community members using idols, and helps build up the school and church with his teaching and example. When his brother's new scheming wife sends her "brother" to capture him, he makes his way back to the kingdom with his new wife and loyal friends by his side. Anyone who really likes historical romance, especially set in the times of kings and knights, will like this book. Tristan is an admirable hero, tireless in his faith and loyalty to God, and works to make everything around him better, even at great personal cost. Many of his trials reminded me of elements from the Biblical stories of David, Solomon, Joseph, and the tale of Jacob and Esau. Overall, a good Christian romance set in the times of knights and heroes! .

Bestseller Kindle The Baron's Ring The Baron’s Ring is the story of a prince named Tristan, whose boorish, belligerent and blasphemous brother Dunstan is heir to the throne of Parangor. When his brother ascends to the kingship, many urge Tristan to leave the area to build a decent life for himself, instead of staying in his brother’s shadow and being bullied constantly, but Tristan sees an obligation to remain and do his best to shield the kingdom from the new King’s idiocy and cruelty (never a great combination).God has other plans, however. In a fight with Dunstan, Tristan is drawn into a ferocious current and drawn down the river, surviving only by the grace of God. He wakes to find himself countless miles from his home kingdom, in a small village far removed from the splendor of the palace. With no possible way back home, Tristan is forced to begin anew with nothing but his faith, his work ethic and, like Blanche DuBois, the kindness of strangers. Of course, a man of God cannot rest in this fallen world, and Tristan soon finds himself fighting against small town cruelty, lies, deception and even sex trafficking. This should come as no surprise to fans of Findley, but the book is greater than sum of its blurb. Grand, important things come to pass before the end, but much joy is found in the journey, as the author deftly draws the reader into Tristan’s struggles and triumphs. At its most basic, this is the story of a man who trusts God even when life doesn’t go as he expects, who learns to work, thrive and love far from home, standing against evil at every opportunity. The author classifies it as a fantasy but, really, any fantastic elements are very light. The kingdoms and geography may be invented, but this could easily be historical fiction instead.My only quibble—and it’s one I’ve made before when discussing Mary/Sophronia’s work—is that I feel the author is much better at writing love stories in which the relationship is already established than she is at writing about new love. Once the central couple in this story have a bit of history, their romance is sweet, genuine and enjoyable to read. Up until that point, however, it simply takes me right out of the story. It’s the concept of love at first sight but it’s really taken to extremes, to the point where it seems like her characters tend to get hitched after a handful of conversations (if that). Now, the marriage in this book happens under peculiar circumstances—although I’m still not entirely sure that I fully get the rationale even now—but the romance itself was telegraphed from chapter two. For me, the initial romance in this book just sticks out like a sore thumb, because I find it so dissatisfying amidst a story that is otherwise a treat to read. I don’t tend to read romances, but I think that’s the only genre that Mary writes that I wouldn’t be willing to read her work.All in all, however, that’s a minor problem with a very well-written book. And, as I said, the romance is satisfying at later stages in the relationship—so it shouldn’t be much of a deterrent to any reader. I interviewed the author on my blog. We chatted about the book and about being a Christian author. http://christfictionandvideogames.blo...
