Annabel used to be the daugher of a wealthy merchant. Now her father is dead and she lives with her family who are too proud to work with the rest of the village. For her family's punishment, Annabel goes to work for Lord Ranulf le Wyse, a frightening man with a mysterious story. In the end, she must decide between spending the rest of her life in a nunnery or following her heart.
I was not a big fan of Dickerson's The Healer's Apprentice. In fact, I strongly disliked it. But lots of people loved it and it almost won a Christy Award. So when I realized I had agreed to review another one of her books, I was not looking forward to it. But to my surprise, I actually liked it.
I loved the cover. I love the story of Beauty and the Beast. I thought the book was exciting, interesting, pretty realistic, and a great spin of the classic fairy tale.
I received a complimentary copy of this book for review purposes from Bethany House. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
