She lost everything to the scheme of an evil servant. But she might just gain what she’s always wanted…if she makes it in time.
The impossible was happening. She, Magdalen of Mallin, was to marry the Duke of Wolfberg. Magdalen had dreamed about receiving a proposal ever since she met the duke two years ago. Such a marriage was the only way she could save her people from starvation. But why would a handsome, wealthy duke want to marry her, a poor baron’s daughter? It seemed too good to be true.
On the journey to Wolfberg Castle, Magdalen’s servant forces her to trade places and become her servant, threatening not only Magdalen’s life, but the lives of those she holds dear. Stripped of her identity and title in Wolfberg, where no one knows her, Magdalen is sentenced to tend geese while she watches her former handmaiden gain all Magdalen had ever dreamed of.
When a handsome shepherd befriends her, Magdalen begins to suspect he carries secrets of his own. Together, Magdalen and the shepherd uncover a sinister plot against Wolfberg and the duke. But with no resources, will they be able to find the answers, the hiding places, and the forces they need in time to save both Mallin and Wolfberg?
Genre: Historical fiction.
My rating: 3 and 1/2 stars.
My recommendation: 15 up.
My favorite character: Magdalen is a sweet heroine, and I enjoyed reading as she went through all the things she did while keeping a sweet outlook.
My Verse for Magdalen is Philippians 2:15
That ye may be blameless and harmless, the sons of God, without rebuke, in the midst of a crooked and perverse nation, among whom ye shine as lights in the world; (King James Version.)
My Thoughts: So, reading these books out of order is confusing, but they are still enjoyable and fun to read. This book felt different than the rest of the series, and while I enjoyed this book I thought when I finished reading it that it had a different writing style. This is a great read though it is slightly annoying to have to remember the books before it since I read most of the books last year.
