Publisher's Summary

An unthinkable danger. An unexpected choice.

Annabel, once the daughter of a wealthy merchant, is trapped in indentured servitude to Lord Ranulf, a recluse who is rumored to be both terrifying and beastly. Her circumstances are made even worse by the proximity of Lord Ranulf's bailiff - a revolting man who has made unwelcome advances on Annabel in the past.

Believing that life in a nunnery is the best way to escape the escalation of the bailiff's vile behavior and to preserve the faith that sustains her, Annabel is surprised to discover a sense of security and joy in her encounters with Lord Ranulf. As Annabel struggles to confront her feelings, she is involved in a situation that could place Ranulf in grave danger. Ranulf's future, and possibly his heart, may rest in her hands, and Annabel must decide whether to follow the plans she has cherished or the calling God has placed on her heart.

    "Captivating and Beautiful"

    This story was beautifully written. I am always amazed at Melanie Dickerson's ability to captivate and draw readers into her stories. Such an intriguing retelling of the classic tale with wonderful correlations to Christ and the power of His Word in our lives. And wonderful job narrating by Jude Mason. I am always able to distinguish the characters and never get drawn out of the story by her narration.

    "A perfect story"

    This is the second book that I have listen to by Melanie Dickerson. She has such a gift for writing. The characters become so real, the plots are believable, it is an altogether satisfying and enjoyable tale. I love the Christian perspective on this book. And the narrator did a fabulous job. Would give more than five stars if I could :-)

    "This was a refreshing story to listen to."

    This was a refreshing story to listen to. Beauty and the Beast retold in a real life type setting. There isn't magic, or a talking tea pot, but the charm of this book is found in other way. There is of course the discovery of the beauty that can be found within a person, and a well written discovery of God and faith, without being too preachy. It's so lovely to see these things in a book.

    "Excellent"

    Every time I read a mother Melanie Dickerson book I think that there's no way it could be as good as the last. For me this one started out a little slow but I think it was because I had little time to listen at first but as I got more into the story I loved it. Jude Mason is also an excellent narrator making the story even better. 10/10 :)

    "Wonderful"

    I've been wanting to read Melanie Dickerson's books for quite some time, but haven't been able to find them. Thank goodness for Audible!
    The familiar story of Beauty and the Beast takes on a thrilling new spin in this book. The plot was well written and the narrator did a great job, especially with the voice changes.
