The Merchant's Daughter Review (Fairy Tale Romance Series)
The Merchant's Daughter
By Melanie Dickerson
An Unthinkable Danger.
An Unexpected Choice.
The second book of the fairytale retelling story is The Merchant's Daughter. Adapt from Beauty and the Beast. This version is like the mix of Disney movie and the 2014 French movie (extremely fascinating~ and the custom...so gorgeous, make me want to own every pieces of them). Beautiful and Dark, both contain in the story. ( And Annabel love to read! How wonderful!) (Reading this book make me want to read Bible~ Besides the character, this book contains a lot of God. Actually, it’s the most appear character in the whole series…)
Annabel, once the daughter of a wealthy merchant, is trapped in indentured servitude to Lord Ranulf le Wyse, a recluse who is rumored to be both terrifying and beastly. Her circumstances are made even worse by the proximity unwelcome advances on Annabel in the past.
Believing that lif in a nunnery is the best way to escape the bailiff’s vile behavior and to preserve the faith that sustains her, Annabel is surprised to discover a sense of security and joy in her encounters with Lord le Wyse. As Annabel struggles to confront her feeling, she is involved in a situation that could place Ranulf in grave danger. Ranulf’s future, and possibly his heart, may rest in her hands, and Annabel must decide whether to follow the plans she has cherished or the calling God has places on her heart.
The character in this book is more modern than the last book, they’re both great, but we can see more opinion of her own, she had more thought of herself. She knew what she wanted and would give it a try. (although it turned out different…I can’t tell you what it was…or it’ll be a spoiler.!) She tried to protect herself and the one she loved, even the price was her life. This book is really similar to the French adaption of Beauty and the Beast. (beautiful scene and lovely customs, even you don’t read the book, I highly recommend this French movie). And the story line just make me feel if the director read this book before. So go and start this both enchanting and haunting story!
