    I'm a big fan of Scottish books, and this one by Jennifer Hudson Taylor is no exception. For Love or Loyalty is a gripping tale about the struggles of the MacGregor family and one of the Campbelss, who is innocent of the crimes committed by her father and brother but is made to pay in ways she never expected.

    In some places, the story is hard to read, not because the writing is bad, but because the situation is sad. It was a very touching story.

    I received this book from the publisher/author for the purpose of review. The above is my honest opinion.

    I was SO blessed by this story! For love or loyalty is such an adventure and full journey! Lauren is the kind of Christian woman I want to be and yet this book also holds the reality that even the strongest in Faith have their moments of fear and, sadly, doubt. It also shows how as humans we can't always see the big picture like God can, but that doesn't mean He leaves us! :) Starting out in Scotland Jennifer takes us across the sea to America. The hardships of travel for both the people able to pay and the indentured servants is shown realistically from sickness to danger. There are many great characters in this as Malcolm and Lauren find friends on and off the ship, but their are also many enemies with terrible intentions. Through it all God watches over them as He shapes them into the people they need to be through the trials they face and the decisions they make. Twists and surprises abound within these chapters. Just when I thought I knew what was going to happen Jennifer threw in another turn that I didn't see coming. For Love or Loyalty is a great read with adventure, suspense, Faith, love, courage, hope and so much more! I cannot wait for For Love or Country!!! This is a MUST READ!!! :)

    For Love or Loyalty by Jennifer Hudson Taylor is the first book in The MacGregor Legacy series. I liked the two main characters in the book, but the story line itself was a little much to me. Too many things happened in quick succession that it went from being sort of realistic to absolutely not realistic. Even though I was irritated at the plot ideas, I did enjoy the book because the characters and the dialogue were so well written. I really want to read about the other MacGregor brothers in the next books!

    Malcolm MacGregor is shocked and dismayed to come home from a trip to find that his mom and sister were taken by the Campbells. When one of MacGregor's men comes back with Lauren Campbell, Malcolm hatches an idea to reclaim his family from indentured service in America. Hauling Lauren with him, they board a ship heading to America, but on the trip over Malcolm regrets his impulsive decision to force Lauren to board the ship with him.

    When Lauren Campbell hears what her father has done to the MacGregor's, she is filled with dismay and sadness. She is shocked when Malcolm forces her to travel to America. Lauren disagrees with his methods, but she understands that he just wants to get his family back. While on board with Malcolm, she starts to fall in love with him and can only hope that they can be together since their family feud seems like an insurmountable obstacle.

    I loved reading about America before the Revolutionary War! One of the best parts of the book is how the author writes the locations really well whether it is on the boat or in the Carolinas it feels like you are there, too. :-) Overall, it was a pretty good read. I give it 3.5 stars.

    I was given this book free from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

    For Love or for Loyalty.

    I Love Jeniffer Hudson's books and normally follow her new releases. This was no different. She has a talent to spin a tale about Scotland and 1700 that makes you wish you lived there and at that time. But this book was a bit different. Even though I, just like Lauren and Malcom see all the good that came out of the bad and the healing that came after pain. It's just at some point - the harshness of MacGregor's clan plight and then the crude journey over the ocean that took so many lives and then even more cruelty and injustice in the colonies. After the pink house I was ready for something good and guess what!!! After that there was only good. Sometimes our lives seem just like that- blow after blow and after blow and you seem to not be able to take a breath in between. At those times God seems oceans away, but in truth after all is over we realize that He was there contemplating and orchestrating everything and even though he caused us a bit of pain and discomfort, this experience delivers people and saves lives. I loved this story and especially the fact that there are two people- Malcom who believes himself cursed and Lauren who holds God tight in her heart, and they both get hit pretty bad. Your faith doesn't save you from the cruel hand of others but it saves your sanity and gives you reason not to give up.

    If you are looking for a book beyond a sweet romance and interesting history this book is deffenetly for you. Read it and let it teach you from its characters lives that revenge and bitterness will never give you the peace and happiness that God and forgiveness can give.

    I really enjoyed this book and I hope you do too.

    Disclaimer: I recieved a free copy of this book from Abingdon Press, through Netgalley, in exchange for my honest opinion.

    This is the first in a series featuring in this installment Malcolm MacGregor as the main male character. He has been to market to sell some of his clan's cattle to pay their rent to their overlord, Glenn Campbell. When he returns to his village, he finds all their belongings burned and many villagers beaten. He vows revenge on the Campbell, who has also taken his mother and sister to sell as indentured servants to pay their supposed debt even though Campbell arrived two weeks early to collect the rent. In retaliation, a fellow clansman kidnaps Lauren Campbell, Glenn's daughter. Malcolm thinks that he can take Lauren and sell her to be an indentured servant to take the place of his mother.

    Lauren Campbell feels alone in her world with the exception of her little sister and the charity work she performs. Lauren regularly travels to Malcolm's village with food for the poor and to socialize with his mother and sister. Lauren's own mother died when Lauren was about eight years old and she has begun to think of Malcolm's mom as a mother figure. Lauren's mother tried to instill Christian beliefs and way of life into her young daughter before she died. Now, Malcolm's mother has watered those seeds and fruit is born. Lauren at first is angry with Malcolm, but realizes her father is guilty in this matter and she will do whatever is needed to help Malcolm regain his lost family members. Romance begins to brew between Lauren and Malcolm, but Malcolm still wrestles with his dilemma of how to rescue his mother and sister from years of servitude and at the same time keep Lauren from serving out a penalty that her father deserves.

    I didn't really like how the main female character in this story just didn't seem realistic in the matter of her kidnapping. She is a wealthy aristocrat who is kidnapped, taken from her homeland, forced to endure a long voyage at sea and told she is being sold into servitude. Yet, one of the first things she does is to forgive the man who put her in this position? I realize this is Christian fiction, but I thought it unrealistic that she didn't have to work much to get through her anger and bitterness to come to the point where she is able to forgive him. I would have liked to see more of this very human struggle. I also, wasn't thrilled with the romance between Malcolm and Lauren. It just didn't flow together well for me. I did like Lauren's ability to see to the needs of others and her willingness to serve others and compassion towards those less fortunate than herself. She certainly portrays Christ to the best of her abilities to her fellow man. Despite her uncertain future, she grabs on to the only thing that will save her and that is her Savior. If I could, I would give this book 3.5 star rating.
