Due to her parents' promise at her birth, Lady Rosemarie has been prepared to become a nun on the day she turns 18. Then, a month before her birthday, a friend of her father's enters the kingdom and proclaims her parents' will left a second choice - if Rosemarie can marry before the eve of her 18th year, she will be exempt from the ancient vow.
Before long, Rosemarie is presented with the three most handsome and brave knights in the land. But when the competition for her heart seemingly results in a knight playing foul, she begins to wonder if the convent is the best place after all. If only one of the knights - the one who appears the guiltiest - had not already captured her heart.

I have read so very high quality young adult novels in the past, but this was not one of them. It was formulaic, the heroine was weak and came across as whiney. She was supposedly raised to be the ruler of a kingdom, but completely lacked any leadership skills. It was also incredibly historically inaccurate in too many ways to ignore. If it was set in a fictional world that might be forgivable, but some of the best fantasy has a least a relatable toe dipped in reality. This book was a waste of time and money.
l have loved all the books by mrs. hedlund. it took me a while to really get into this book but as I continued to listen the mystery thickens. I really enjoyed this book and would recommend it to one and all.
