She lost everything to an evil conspiracy . . . but that loss may just give her all she ever wanted.
In true Melanie fashion this latest story “A Noble Servant” is a delightful fairy-tale woven with Christian values and a reminder that through every hardship God is with us, guiding our steps.
Lady Magdalen has thought often of the handsome Duke of Wolfberg since meeting him two years ago at Thornbeck Castle. She is surprised to receive a letter from him asking her to be his wife and to travel to Wolfberg castle. Along the journey there she is forced to trade places with her trusted maidservant and assigned to tend the geese and watch from the fringes as her maidservant marries the Duke.
Steffan, Duke of Wolfberg has been away at university and during his absence, he has been ousted by his scheming uncle and cousin. Steffan is able to escape from the mercenaries that set upon him and disguises himself as a shepherd to gain access to Wolfberg and discover what is going on.
Magdalen & Steffan are reunited while tending the animals and begin to devise a plan to get back their stolen identities.
Will our hero and heroine get caught sneaking thru the castle to uncover the proof they need? Will they be able to get help from their friends at Thornbeck or from Magdalen’s family? How are their secrets getting discovered?
With believable characters and a story line that will draw you in and keep the pages turning, I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys reading Christian fiction. This is a delightful spin on the German fairy-tale of the Goose Girl and one you will not want to miss!
I give this book 5 stars
