Duty: a novel of Rhynan by Rachel Rossano
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
What were the main relationships explored in this book? Tomas and Brielle. Just when you think that their marriage was the significant moment of the book, it is the violent attack on Brielle's village that turns things around. Every page had something exciting for this reader.
What did you like about the book? The issue of forced marriage has been discussed openly in the past years. While some cultures allow it, some frown upon it. This book raises questions about this and other issues like poverty and wealth distribution. I also loved the fictional country the author created.
Favourite character(s) … I liked Tomas. Sometimes you didn't know whether to love him or to hate him and I think it was his colourfulness that added to this fast-paced story and of course, made Lady Brielle's life just a bit more interesting.
