The Silent Songbird Review!!!!!!!

The Silent Songbird by Melanie Dickerson 

Book Description:
Evangeline is gifted with a heavenly voice, but she is trapped in a sinister betrothal until she embarks on a daring escape and meets brave Westley le Wyse. Can he help her discover the freedom to sing again?

Desperate to flee a political marriage to her cousin King Richard II’s closest advisor, Lord Shiveley—a man twice her age with shadowy motives—Evangeline runs away and joins a small band of servants journeying back to Glynval, their home village.
Pretending to be mute, she gets to know Westley le Wyse, their handsome young leader, who is intrigued by the beautiful servant girl. But when the truth comes out, it may shatter any hope that love could grow between them.
More than Evangeline’s future is at stake as she finds herself entangled in a web of intrigue that threatens England’s monarchy.Should she give herself up to protect the only person who cares about her? If she does, who will save the king from a plot to steal his throne?

My Opinion:
LOVE IT!!!  Melanie is one of the BEST authors I've read!  I LOVE this action packed retelling of The Little Mermaid!  Eva is a fantastically strong, courageous, and spunky character.  And Westley is a lovable and kind one!  Bad guys pop up all around and it will take all of the good guys working together an relying on their Faith to defeat them!  I enjoyed Melanie's addition of King Richard and fans of this series will be very happy to see where Lady and Lord le Wyse end up as they are brought back for this adventure!  Yet this is a great stand alone also.  I'm starting the Hagenheim series from here, and will be going back to read the rest! ;)  I HIGHLY recommend this great read and wouldn't mind reading it again and again!!!
Songs: "He Leadeth Me" performed by The Cluster Pluckers, "Kiss the Girl (from "The Little Mermaid") (From "The Little Mermaid"/ Soundtrack Version)" by Samuel E. Wright
