Dina L. Sleiman continues her young adult series with a story about a young woman who is inspired to join a crusade. Dauntless and Chivalrous, earlier books in this series, were reviewed in Christian Library Journal and on this blog in May/June 2015 and November/December 2015.
In Courageous, Rosalind of Ipsworth joins a crusade to free captives from a Tripoli prison. Haunted by a mistake in her past, Rosalind feels she is unworthy to even consider marriage and a family. She is joined by Sir Randel Penigree, who dreams of becoming a Templar knight, even though he flees humiliation at home. Together they train a group of older children, are faced with political intrigue and an unknown enemy, on their journey to set prisoners free. Will they find redemption from their past? Will they be successful in their attempt to rescue the prisoners?
