A second princess. Another key to the treasure. And a cruel king desperate to squelch the growing rebellion.
Raised in an isolated abbey, Lady Maribel desires nothing more than to become a nun and continue practicing her healing arts. She’s carefree and happy with her life…until a visitor comes to the abbey and reveals her true identity as one of the lost princesses.
When he was a young boy, Edmund Chambers helplessly watched King Ethelwulf murder his family. Edmund escaped and has lived in the abbey ever since, uniquely trained to work with wild animals. Secretly, he loves Maribel and desperately hopes she doesn’t complete her holy order vows.
When King Ethelwulf’s army arrives at the abbey to capture Maribel, she flees with Edmund across the desolate Highlands in an attempt to reach Adelaide’s rebel army. Edmund can no longer hide his love, but can Maribel give up her dreams of becoming a nun to love him in return?
I absolutely loved reading this story, and I didn’t want it to end. I’m so very glad that the next book in this series will be coming out soon and I have another book to look forward to reading. Engaging and fast-paced, these stories fairly leap off the page!
Sword fights, a secret treasure, a dangerous labyrinth with hidden traps and a hungry monster, a dashing hero, and a daring heroine. This story has something for everyone! Whether you are young or young at heart, if you delight in well-told, stories of adventure and love then look no further!
The characters learn and grow along the way. They discover that the plans they had for themselves are pale in comparison with the perfect plan that God has for their lives. They learned that it is important to wait on God and not rush ahead. A lesson we can all learn!
This series just keeps getting better and better. I can’t wait to read Emmaline’s story! Do yourself a favor and snatch this book up as soon as possible!
