Evangeline is gifted with a heavenly voice, but she is trapped in a sinister betrothal - until she embarks on a daring escape and meets brave Westley le Wyse. Can he help her discover the freedom to sing again?
Desperate to flee a political marriage to her cousin, King Richard II's closest advisor, Lord Shiveley - a man twice her age, with shadowy motives - Evangeline runs away and joins a small band of servants journeying back to Glynval, their home village.
Pretending to be mute, she gets to know Westley le Wyse, their handsome young leader, who is intrigued by the beautiful servant girl. But when the truth comes out, it may shatter any hope that love could grow between them.
More than Evangeline's future is at stake as she finds herself entangled in a web of intrigue that threatens England's monarchy. Should she give herself up to protect the only person who cares about her? If she does, who will save the king from a plot to steal his throne?

Full time mom and wife. Full time job. This is the only way I can "read" books anymore. Love love love audible.
This is another fantastic story. Melanie Dickerson is an amazing story teller. The characters are well developed and the story pulls you in.
Wow Melanie Dickerson, We are impressed with your skill of tying so many books (each individual one a crafted masterpiece)and characters together to build an enchanting story which has captured the hart of our family.
We wish to also thank Jude Mason's experienced skills as narrator.
Another great book by Melanie Dickerson. I was happy to see Lord le Wyse and Annabel again (since The Merchant's Daughter is my favorite of the series), and hooe to see more of their family in future fairytale retellings. We didn't even get all of their children's names!
