Book Report & #Giveaway - Chivalrous, by Dina Sleiman


It is about time!!!! Thank you Bethany House Publishing for publishing a fabulous book with strong, independent heroines!!! I loved the balance between femininity and independence. While romance was thick our heroine did not quail, quake and have moments of high emotionally whimpering. I love how she fought for herself and for those she loved. I enjoyed how she saw defeat and the humility of being defended yet still perfectly capable of doing the defending herself in many ways. I am thankful the balance of female roles was brought up in a heroine who found herself hand in hand as a valued, strong partner to the male and not someone who simply needed a hero. And yet, he was still her hero, and in many ways, she was his. The perfect balance of iron sharpening iron rather than the hero being the savior and the heroine, the saved with nothing to offer but supportive love.

Anyone who is looking for a Godly yet strong and balanced relationship in fiction, this one is for you. More heroines like this need to be written in the CBA.


AND! We're giving away a copy today so some other lucky reader can enjoy this great read!!

  4. I love heroines who are strong, yet vulnerable. They need to have a human element and not be perfect.

  5. I like heroines that don't take anything from anyone but yet at the same time are godly and gentle with children and animals.

  8. Godly women but strong and can stand on their own. Ones who stand up for the right thing no matter the cost, but also with a nurturing spirit.

  9. Heroines should be strong even if they think they aren't.
