My rating: 5 of 5 stars
A second princess. Another key to the treasure. And a cruel king desperate to squelch the growing rebellion.
Raised in an isolated abbey, Lady Maribel desires nothing more than to become a nun and continue practicing her healing arts. She’s carefree and happy with her life…until a visitor comes to the abbey and reveals her true identity as one of the lost princesses.
When he was a young boy, Edmund Chambers helplessly watched King Ethelwulf murder his family. Edmund escaped and has lived in the abbey ever since, uniquely trained to work with wild animals. Secretly, he loves Maribel and desperately hopes she doesn’t complete her holy order vows.When King Ethelwulf’s army arrives at the abbey to capture Maribel, she flees with Edmund across the desolate Highlands in an attempt to reach Adelaide’s rebel army. Edmund can no longer hide his love, but can Maribel give up her dreams of becoming a nun to love him in return?
Jody Hedlund does not disappoint in her latest release from The Lost Princesses series. Foremost is yet another fabulous read! I love, love, LOVE Edmund and Maribel’s story. It is so good, I had it read in one sitting.
I would give Foremost one hundred stars if I could. It is that good. I would highly recommend it, as well as, the rest of the series for readers who enjoy a sweet, clean, and quick young adult story.
I received this book from the author, but was not required to write a review. This review is 100% my own honest opinion.
