-From the inside flap-
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?
Searching for freedom she finds love...
This Book received a 5 Bark rating.
I quickly fell in love with the Evangeline and Westley, she with her courage and he with his kind heart. And I despised the truly despicable Lord Shiveley. It was also fun to check into the later lives of the hero and heroine of a previous Melanie Dickerson book...
The Silent Songbird is a truly delightful and engrossing tale, one of romance, chivalry, and intrigue, set in the fascinating and dangerous Medieval period. This is one book you'll want to carve out some reading time for, because once you open that gorgeous cover you won't be able to put it down.
Tell Tale Book Reviews gives The Silent Songbird by Melanie Dickerson a 5 Bark rating.
