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.
