The Merchant's Daughter

The Merchant’s Daughter is Melanie Dickerson’s latest book.  Annabel is scorned by her village for her family’s refusal to help with the reaping of crops every year since the death of her wealthy father.  As punishment she is sent as an indentured servant to work for the new lord, Ranulf le Wyse.  Yet facing the new lord who has a reputation of being beastly is much more appealing than marrying Bailiff Tom-her only other option.  Even though the new lord appears very intimidating and ruthless he continues to protect Annabel, even though it may cost him everything. 

I loved The Healer’s Apprentice and this one was just as good!  I have always loved fairy tales and have really enjoyed how Dickerson weaves fairy tale elements into a Christian love story.  This is a very tender and sweet love story where Ranulf and Annabel fall in love as they spend time in God’s word together.  This was an absolute joy to read and I can’t wait for her new one, The Fairest Beauty coming out in December.
