Summary

A foundling girl raised in a monastery must find the castle of the king who wants her dead in order to save the monks and the community that she calls home.

We shall all, in the end, be led to where we belong. We shall all, in the end, find our way home.
In a time of war, a mysterious child appears at the monastery of the Order of the Chronicles of Sorrowing. Gentle Brother Edik finds the girl, Beatryce, curled in a stall, wracked with fever, coated in dirt and blood and holding fast to the ear of Answelica the recalcitrant goat. As the monk nurses Beatryce to health, he uncovers her dangerous secret - one that imperils them all.
And so it is that a girl with a head full of stories must venture into a dark wood in search of the castle of a king who wishes her dead. But should she lose her way, Beatryce knows that those who love her - a wild-eyed monk, a man who had once been king, a boy with a terrible sword and a goat with a head as hard as stone - will never give up searching for her. And to know this is to know everything.

NOTE : There is spot-foiling on the jacket front and spine and on the book spine.

Book of the week

It's beautifully written and easy to read. A sensitive and illuminating tale set in a time where education was denied to girls. Has the right level of drama/suspense with a satisfying ending. A safe, reading-for-pleasure delight.
