Review + E-book Sale- Honor by Lyn Cote

18 Nov

Honor-Ebook Sale

When unexpected circumstances leave Honor Penworthy destitute after the death of her grandfather, she is forced to leave her Maryland plantation—and the slaves she hoped to free—and seek refuge with a distant relative. With no marketable skills, her survival hinges on a marriage arranged through the Quaker community to local glass artisan Samuel Cathwell. Samuel is drawn to Honor, but he has been unwilling to open his heart to anyone since scarlet fever took his hearing as a child.

A move west brings the promise of a fresh start, but nothing in Honor’s genteel upbringing has prepared her for the rigors of frontier life with Samuel. Nevertheless, her tenacity and passion sweep her into important winds of change, and she becomes increasingly—though secretly—involved in the Underground Railroad. Samuel suspects Honor is hiding something, but will uncovering the truth confirm his worst fears or truly bring them together as man and wife?


“Set against the backdrop of dramatic and pivotal moments in American history, the Quaker Brides series chronicles the lives of three brave heroines, fighting to uphold their principles of freedom while navigating the terrain of faith, family, and the heart.”

Honor, Book 1 in the Quaker Brides series, is an exceptional story! Honor Penworthy is an extraordinary heroine; a strong woman standing firm in her beliefs and fighting for what she believes in. Samuel Cathwell is a unique hero, guarding himself and his heart from the world around him.

I was immediately captivated by this poignant story and it lingered in my mind long after the last page had been turned. Lyn Cote has penned a vivid historical, full of depth and emotion. I loved Honor and highly recommend this book for fans of historical fiction!

This week, Honor is available in e-book format for only $2.99.  Download your copy from Amazon, Barnes and Noble, or
