I lovingly call this my "princess in a tower" story.

This book was a lot of fun and hard to write at the same time. A scene toward the end made me cry and the message (our value in Christ) touched me deeply in writing it. Why? There is nothing like trying to teach a lesson that makes one learn it again themselves.

Another delightful tale in this series. I enjoy it when the author brings in a character from an earlier book. It makes me smile and remember.
Edna was so sweet and the transformation in her after the events of the story made me want to know more about her. As for Sir. Andrew–At first I couldn't figure out what was wrong with him, but I knew something wasn't right. Then, the more I got to know him, the more I wanted to shake him. Though I can't imagine that helping much. Thankfully things g

I thought the characters in this story were very real and relatable--although I wanted to shake Andrew for a good portion of the book! The plot was an interesting twist (or several) on the stock captive-princess-in-a-tower story, and I liked the lessons that both Edna and Andrew learned along the way.

The cover of the book is just lovely, is it not? It depicts Edna, a princess's maid... and she's putting her life on the line for someone who will never appreciate her. After being captured, and tucked away in an impenetrable tower, how can she let her light shine forth? It is such a hard thing to do, when everything has been stripped away.

“Her life would mean something and serve a purpose even if only she and God knew about it.”

I really did like Edna's character; her personality is so sweet, kin

I love the Tales of Taelis series. Truly, it is one of my favourites. They are all enjoyable books with godly foundation and encouraging lessons, as well as always being extremely enjoyable.
E&E was no exception! All of those words fit this book perfectly. Main female character Edna doesn't know her worth and sees herself as foolish, ignorant, and worthless because that is what she's been told for so long. It made me sad. She was such a sweetheart of a character, I rejoiced with her to

Edna is a servant in the palace, a maid to Princess Gail. As an orphan, Edna has been told for years by the princess that she is worthless so now Edna believes that to be true. (Yes, Princess Gail is not very nice!)

Having reached marriageable age, Princess Gail claims to be in love with Lord Roburn but her wise father does not approve of the match. Why not? With a trip planned the princess is up to her schemes again. Can Edna warn anyone? More importantly, will anyone believe her? Si
