Book Review of The Merchant’s Daughter

I adored this book! And lovers of historical fiction will adore it as well. It is obvious that Ms. Dickerson committed hours of research to the historical time and setting because the reader is immediately transported to the mid-1300’s in Glynval, England. Annabel Chapman, the heroine, will capture your heart with her sweet spirit, her quiet beauty and her earnest desire to read through the Holy Scriptures, learning as much as she can. The hero, Lord Ranulf le Wyse will induce sympathy in the reader as he has been wounded physically; however, his emotional wounds are far more damaging. As Annabel and Lord Ranulf grow closer together, they grow spiritually, also, realizing that God truly loves them and wants only the best for them.

The Merchant’s Daughter is captivating and on a scale of 1-10, I give it a 12.

Sometimes I want contemporary, sometimes historical, but I always prefer Christian fiction with strong female main characters.This sounds like an excellent book and one that I want to read.

  3. I love to read Christian fiction; however it would be hard for me to pick a genre within that since I equally like reading historical, contemporary, mystery, suspense, humorous, and chick lit. I am thankful Christian fiction has widened to encompass so many styles.I read Melanie's first book, The Healer's Apprentice, and really enjoyed it, even though it was marketed as YA and I don't usually read those (I'm well above the age limit for YA!). I'm looking forward to reading The Merchant's Daughter and would be extremely excited to win a copy. Thanks for giving one away.pmk56[at]sbcglobal[dot]net
