If Addy can play her part, she'll have glorious gowns, jewels, and something she's always longed for—the respect and admiration of others.But then she meets Will, the falconer's son with sky blue eyes, who unsettles all her plans.From shipwrecks to castle dungeons, from betrothals to hidden conspiracies, Addy finds herself in a world where she's not the only one with a dangerous secret. When she discovers the truth, Addy must take matters into her own hands. The stakes? Her chance at true love . . . and the life she's meant to live.
A coming of age story that develops into a brilliant love story. The storyline touches on many complex issues. It starts at the bottom rung and explodes to the top of the ladder. The author keeps the reader following a journey that comes full circle. A very strong and stable storyline. With charming characters, that help the readers identify with the plights of everyday medieval life. It is a very endearing story. I think any young lady would enjoy this fascinating read.
