Publisher's Summary

In 1839, after decades of conflict, the Russian army and the Muslims of Chechnya are on the verge of a truce. To prove his commitment to peace, warrior chief Imam Shamil offers a hostage: his son, Jamal Eddin. But once the truce is signed, the Russians spirit Jamal Eddin back to Russia, where Czar Nicholas “adopts” the boy.
Immersed in imperial court life, Jamal Eddin matures into the consummate courtier. Still, he maintains his Muslim faith - until he falls in love with a beautiful Russian aristocrat. To marry her, Jamal Eddin must convert to Christianity, a sacrifice he is prepared to make. But his devotion to his bride will be pitted against his duty to his homeland when Jamal Eddin is called to take his rightful place leading the Muslims.
Based on a true story, this sweeping historical novel chronicles the coming-of-age of a young man torn by impossible choices wrought by love and conflicting loyalties.

Horrible reader.

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

I love this era and the history and had high hopes. But the reader is so awful with no training and the constant downward inflection that I kept falling asleep.

What was most disappointing about Alexandra Lapierre’s story?

Hard to tell since the reader was so awful. I got so lost, maybe editing would help. Impossible to finish it.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Nick Podehl?

Stick to modern stuff "dude".

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Disappointment. How do I return it?

Don't bother!

What disappointed you about Between Love and Honor?

I gave up on this book about 3 hours into it. I tried to hang in there, hoping it would improve, but it seemed to be just one religious "rant" after another with respect to Allah. It just never ended and not being a religious fanatic, it definitely did not appeal to me... left me with a headache before finally deleting this. The idea is very interesting, but it just bogs down in too much religious dialog, praising Allah and praying constantly. Pity. Just as something starts to happen and you hope it might progress, it goes backwards again.

What was most disappointing about Alexandra Lapierre’s story?

Too much religious "rant" and doesn't progress.

Would you listen to another book narrated by Nick Podehl?

Yes, he did a good job with the very poor material he had to work with.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Total disappointment....bored with the endless religious rant.

Any additional comments?

I would not recommend this book to anyone I know. It's the first audiobook I've purchased that I actually deleted from my listening device.
