Has anyone read The Legend of the Emerald Rose?  It is a Christian romance fantasy set in King Arthur's day.  I wishlisted it for my teen daughter who loves that genre.  But now that it's been offered to me, I did some more research, and I'm not sure if it's appropriate for a young adult.  On Amazon, one review claims it's "clean romance", but another reviewer was annoyed at "the unnecessary sexual references."  If you've read it, can you give me your opinion?  Thanks.

Megan, I wish I could help you, but I haven't read the book.  Here are reviews from christianbook.com

I read those too, and didn't find anything helpful.  I also did an internet search for reviews, and didn't come up with much.

Oh sorry, I have it sitting on my shelf to read, but I haven't gotten to it yet, but I did get it because of recommendations...

Well, the request timed out because I just couldn't make up my mind, so I guess the problem is solved for the moment.  Janna, once you have read it, would you mind posting your view here?  If you think it's good, I will consider wishlisting it again.
