Review

"A Woman of Courage by Marlow Kelly is the beautiful tale of two peoplewho had a haunting past but that still manage to come together. While I normally complain that books are too short, A Woman of Courage is the perfect length. The back story that puts Fianna and Connell in the position as leadersof their respective clans is all there and is explained thoroughlyenough to leave no questions about what happened. That's refreshing for a short book as normally the back story is sacrificed to keep the bookshort. The imagery is beautiful and at times it felt like I was rightthere with Fianna or Connell, or both! Amazing, simply amazing!"

Historical romance isn't my usual genre, but this one is set in an interesting time period, in the clans of ninth century Ireland battling Viking invaders. And as the title suggests, it features a strong female lead. A kickass 9th century heroine, if you will. Gotta love it!

Because of the unusual time setting, the author includes a brief forward to set the stage, showing that she did her research and strives for authenticity. According to Kelly, "Although Ireland was a male-dominated society, women were allowed greater freedom, independence and property rights than other European societies of the time."

Against this backdrop we meet Fianna Byrne, the queen of her clan and former wife to neighboring king, Connell O'Neill. They have a son together, who is being fostered elsewhere as was the custom. When Fianna's village is attacked and devastated by Viking raiders, she fights until left for dead. Upon waking, her first thought is of her son, and the need to warn neighboring clans of the invaders. Despite the ill feelings between her and Connell, he is the father of her child and deserves the chance her village never got.

Connell O'Neill has complicated feelings for his ex-wife, despite asking for the divorce and spreading nasty lies about her character. His main problem being that he never stopped loving her.

Told in alternating points of view, the reader can sympathize with both sides of their complicated relationship, and the fact that there are two separate clans now depending on this couple to figure out a path to survival for them all. The author adds in lots of little historic details which drew me into the story, as well as keeping the action moving forward at a fast clip.

Gritty, action-packed romance from Viking age Ireland. I love romances where the stakes are high and the conflicts/issues between the hero and heroine are realistic and intense. For a novella the character development was exceptional. These characters seemed real and alive. I will definitely look for more books by Ms. Kelly.

Marlow Kelly spans the centuries portraying extraordinary woman in her Honor, Love and Courage series. Comprised of three novellas A Woman of Courage is the final installment in this series. Each work is a gem and personifies the traits of her series’ titles. A Woman of Courage is set in medieval Ireland and takes its heroine on a treacherous journey to recover her clan after a devastating attack. Reaching out to her former husband, the leader of a neighboring clan, for help past misunderstandings and decisions come to light and are dealt with in this well designed story. Filled with emotion and detail Ms. Kelly does an amazing job of presenting the satisfaction of reading a full novel in the space of a novella. If you are looking for a fast and meaningful read this author fits the bill and hopefully more work will be on the horizon from her soon!
*I received the ARC for this novella from the author.*

Independent reviewer for Archaeolibrarian, I was gifted my copy of this book.

Fianna loved her husband, she really did but Connell listened to his father and after three months, Fianna was an outcast. 12 years later, Fianna needs Connell's help, to save the ragtag band of her people who survived the Viking attack. Connell, being king of his Clan, has to put the Clan first. But he never forgave himself for listening to his father's hatred of Fianna. When she turns up at his door, he knows he won't be able to let her go again.

You know, sometimes, you just need a book to READ? You don't need to concentrate on complicated plotlines or characters? You don't need to have read previous books in a series? You can just lose yourself in the story??

This book, right here. Its only short, in both length and time span covered, an hour reading time and 24 hours in the book. Its not explicit, but there is heat and passion. Its not overly graphic but there is a battle with the Viking raiders.

Its told from both main characters POV in the third person.

It really is a delightful little tale of second chances and listening to your heart.

I have read the other two books in this series, but they are all standalones. The only common theme is the strength of the female lead.

My only criticism, but it doesn't affect my reading or review, is that I wished they were longer. I'd like to read a more in depth, longer book by this author but I can only find these three.

Still, a quick easy read that is well written.

4 stars

I was very pleased to be asked once again to read and review an advanced copy of one of the books in the Honour, Love & Courage series by Marlow Kelly. The opinions expressed are completely my own.

Each of the novella’s in this series is a stand-alone read and they are only connected in that they describe the stories of strong woman. The third and final novella, A Woman of Courage, is set in Ireland in the year 810 AD. The cover of the book is the best cover yet of this series and as soon as I saw it I wanted to get started on reading the novella. The female pictured on the cover looks positively fierce!

Kelly began this novella by giving the reader some background information about early Irish history, culture , Celtic Christianity and the roles that women might play. She included information on marriage and divorce in that time period and having this information upfront made the context of the story easier to grasp.

Fianne Byrne, the woman of courage was a leader of her clan. She had been married, had given birth to a son and then was divorced by her husband who later took charge of raising their son. As the story begins, Fianna has survived an attack on her clan by Vikings, and as one of very few survivors, has managed , despite her wounds, to make it to the gates of her ex-husbands fort. She has no idea how she will be received and whether help will be forthcoming for the other survivors of her clan.

Connell O’Neill, the King of the O’Neill clan, has always regretted letting his wife go. He chose to divorce her because he thought it best for her safety, but she was completely unaware of his reasoning. Little did she know (or any of the members of his clan) that he was still in love with her.
