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.
One of my favorites
This is one of my favorite books. I love the characters and how the author uses scripture to pull the story line together! I have probably read this book along with The Healers Apprentice a dozen times. I never get tired of them.
This book was written really well!!!! I love all of Melanie Dickerson's books!👍🏽👍🏽👍🏽👍🏽👍🏽👍🏽
I haven’t read the whole series. I am on The Princess Spy. I had started with The Fairest Beauty, then The Captive Maiden, then The Healers Apprentice, then this one. As I read each one of them, I thought the next one couldn’t be better. But as I read them, I got fully engaged in each one of them. They are very easy to get sucked in. I totally recommend it!
