Publisher's Description

The Trilett family and friends prepare for the joyous celebration of Tahn and Netta's wedding. Returning from a party in her honor, Netta is kidnapped, and her coachman and escorts are found murdered. It looks like the work of bandits, but Tahn is secretly sent a message that Netta will be released if he will present himself in trade.
Tahn believes that his murderously jealous cousin, Baron Lionel Trent, is responsible for the villainy. The baron would surely kill Tahn given the chance, just to eliminate the possibility of a rival heir. But Tahn chooses to go to the assigned meeting place anyway, alone as ordered, in hopes of securing Netta's release. Will he succeed in rescuing his bride? Or will Tahn and Netta forever miss their chance at

Author Bio

L. A. Kelly is better known to her historical fiction fans as Leisha Kelly. She is the bestselling author of Julia's Hope, Emma's Gift, Katie's Dream, Rorey's Secret, and Rachel's Prayer. Leisha and her husband, K.J., have two children and live in Clayton, Illinois.

After a life of pain, Tahn Dorn wishes only to settle down peacefully and marry the lady he loves, Netta Trilett. But when Tahn's old enemies kidnap her on the day before their wedding, joyful anticipation fades to agonizing suspense. Tahn’s enemies offer him a choice—but can he save Netta, or will the shadow of his dark past destroy both himself and the one he loves?
Set in a fictional land during the Middle Ages, The Scarlet Trefoil by L.A. Kelly is the third book in the Tahn series. It concludes the tale of Tahn Dorn, but it also stands alone. Formerly a slave to the cruel Samis, Tahn has experienced God’s grace and transforming power and fallen in love with the daughter of the nobleman Benn Trilett. In addition to battling enemies from his past, Tahn must contend with those who suspect him of greed and selfish ambition.
The novel deals extensively with the themes of love, forgiveness, and providence. Tahn and Netta’s love is a true, sacrificial love like that of Christ for the church. As a type of Christ, Tahn also displays incredible forgiveness. And throughout the book, characters seek God’s guidance and trust His protection. The story’s overarching theme is God working out His plan through the lives of those who honor Him.
Although Kelly’s novel presents worthy themes, on the literary side it falls short of the inspiring tale the author apparently intends. While some of her characters, such as Tahn, provide inspiring examples at times, they come across as too perfect at others. More significantly, the book lacks a gripping writing style, and the author would do well to focus on improving the overall quality of the writing in the future. However, her use of suggestion and symbolism to hint at events beyond the end of the novel was commendable. Some readers will enjoy this book for its adventure and positive themes, but others will walk away dissatisfied because of its lack of writing sophistication. – Jonathan Young, Christian Book

    Excellent book with suspense & inspiration throughout (again).

    So glad I read it--loved it!

    I will say this was the last book I read in the trilogy (only because I accidentally got them out of order & read this one last, after Return to Alistair). But my mistaken reading order did not spoil the story, which makes me believe the writing was even more impressive. I couldn't wait to find out what character did what next, and found myself sad to come to the end of the series whose characters (especially Taun) had come to feel much like treasured friends. The great thing is that I'm still finding myself reminded of certain behaviors & responses from the characters that inspire me to persevere and stay true to my faith, weeks after finishing the books. And I'd call that a great set of books.
