Due to her parents’ promise at her birth, Lady Rosemarie has been prepared to become a nun on the day she turns eighteen. Then, shortly before her birthday, a friend of her father’s enters the kingdom and proclaims her parents’ will left a second choice—if Rosemarie can marry before the eve of her eighteenth year, she will be exempt from the ancient vow.

Before long, Rosemarie is presented with the three most handsome and brave knights in the land. But when the knights’ arrival results in a series of attacks within her land, she begins to wonder if the convent is the best place after all. If only one of the knights—the one who appears the most guilty—had not already captured her heart.

Honors for An Uncertain Choice

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Is there a sequel?

Yes, while An Uncertain Choice has a happily-ever-after for one of the knights, I purposefully left a cliff hanger at the end. I hinted that one of the other two knights is facing grave danger and that his friends must rush off to save him before it’s too late. This second book releases in March of 2016.

  • Will the other knights fall in love?

Since one knight finds his true love in An Uncertain Choice, it’s only fair that each of the other two knights gets the chance to find love too. So they begin their own quests to find their places in the world, overcome shortcomings, and along the way find the woman that God has planned for them. The title for the second book in the series is A Daring Sacrifice.

  • Does Rosemarie resemble any of your daughters?

My two oldest daughters (twins) are in high school and so are facing some of the same growing up issues that Rosemarie faces: the struggle to know what to do with their futures, the desire to make their own decisions and yet still listen to wise advice, the longing to be courageous in the face of hardship but not always knowing how.  And of course, my daughters are in the thick of learning how to handle blossoming feelings of interest in guys.

Editorial Reviews for An Uncertain Choice

  • USA Today Happy Ever After: “This YA novel is as lovely as a fairy tale, with just the right amount of surprises — revealed at just the right times — to keep you on your toes. With plenty of sigh-worthy moments, you’ll be quickly hooked into the story. Even though all three men vying for Rosemarie’s hand are worthy heroes, it’s not difficult to pick the front runner … but his reticence gives a fun edge to all the efforts of courtship. Recommended reading for preteens to adults, this sweet story will not disappoint!” ~ Serena Chase
  • The Christian Manifesto: “Wielding her pen like her gallant knights wield their swords and spears, Jody Hedlund charges fearlessly into the young-adult fiction fray and triumphs! An Uncertain Choice is a dazzling, heart-pounding medieval romance that will mesmerize historical fiction fans of all ages.” ~ Amy Drown

Blog Reviews for An Uncertain Choice

  • Christian Shelf-Esteem: “As a mother and children’s ministry leader, I am a huge proponent of wholesome Christian fiction for teens. Our kids are bombarded by unrealistic and often over sexualized depictions of love. An Uncertain Choice runs counter-culturally by placing the value of a person on their willingness to serve others, to stand up for the downtrodden, and for their obedience to God.”
  • Once Upon a Twilight: “An Uncertain Choice was filled with enough suspense, romance, and need I say feels! Oh, the feels! I loved An Uncertain Choice. I couldn’t put the book down anxious to know what the outcome would be!”
  • A Lamp, A Light, and a Writer: “An Uncertain Choice combines all the expected elements of a Jody Hedlund story: strong, likeable characters; crackling romantic tension; fascinating historical detail; seemingly-insurmountable conflict; and a satisfying ending that elicits a sigh from the reader.”
  • Ryebrynn’s Random Ramblings: “This book kept me on my toes. It wasn’t just a romance. The author mixed in murder and mayhem as well.”
  • Books and Beverages: “After reading Jody Hedlund’s first YA novel, An Uncertain Choice, I can say without a doubt she has sealed the deal as an all-time favorite author. Whether it’s historical fiction or young adult, you’re in for a treat with one of her novels.”
  • Zelma Kromrey: “Jody Hedlund puts many twists and turns, with fight scenes, mystery, and of course romance. I didn’t want the story to end.”
