Publisher's Summary

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?

Romantic and CLEAN

A loose version of the little mermaid....without the mermaid. lol

If you have never read a Melanie Dickerson book, she is a GENIOUS at taking familiar fairytales, and giving them a "non-magical" faith based spin... BUT they FEEL magical just the same!

This book did not disappoint! and the narration really did it justice.

Action, romance, suspense

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!
