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.

Enjoyed this book very much.

I really like Melanie Dickerson books.
My husband and I listen to them while traveling. Just enough drama to keep him interested and I enjoy the love story. My favorite thing is how these stories include God and His word all throughout. Thank you for writing Christian fiction.

Love all of her books!

Can’t wait till a new series comes out! The reading is always exciting with never slow boring moments and not overly dramatic that it isn’t realistic. Jude Mason’s voice is one of my favorites.

Excellent

I’m enjoying this series of Fairy Tale Remakes. The characters are well-developed and it’s nice that some are from previous books. Melanie has a beautiful way of writing and phrasing that helps bring the story to life.
Jude Mason is a good narrator for the audiobooks, however in my opinion her dialogue is a little stilted.
