The Lost Princesses #1
By Jody Hedlund
Adelaide has a life that she loves though since Uncle Whelan's death life has been more difficult. And with Aunt Susanna's deteriorating health Adelaide's life is about to change especially when the truth about who she is is revealed. The long-lost Princess Constance didn't die when King Ethelwulf seized the throne of Mercia instead she was hidden away at Langley for the last 17 years and the time to lay claim to her throne has come.
But Adelaide has no desire to change her life and claim what she doesn't know. But when she sees the suffering of the people that she should be queen over she knows that she has little choice in the matter. She owes it to those who her parents ruled to become the ruler that they desired her to be.
But King Ethelwulf is determined to hold onto his united kingdom of Bryttania (the reunion of Mercia and Warwick) and he will do whatever he can to keep Adelaide from laying claim to what he believes is his and his family's by right. And the "cousins" who love her will do all in their power to keep her safe even if it costs them everything. Christopher wants Adelaide to lead the rebellion that has grown over the years, the rebellion that he left home 5 years ago to join. While Mitchell wants to protect Adelaide and fulfill the vow he made upon his mother's deathbed.
Evermore is the first book in the Lost Princesses series but it isn't the beginning, to learn how Adelaide escaped from King Ethelwulf you will need to read the prequel novella Always. But Always isn't necessary to read and enjoy Evermore, though knowing the backstory is always nice. Evermore is the beginning of the quest to restore what was lost and the first step is Adelaide laying claim to the throne that was stolen and then to find the sisters she has lost uniting with them to find a long lost treasure. Evermore is the first step and it is a delightful book that is complete in itself and one can anticipate the next book without being left hanging from a cliff. One knows more is coming but it is a satisfying ending.
I was provided with a complimentary copy of this book with no expectations but that I provide my honest opinion - all thoughts expressed are my own
"I am Adelaide Constance Dierdal Aurora, the true queen and heir of the house of Mercia."
No one is more stunned to learn that Adelaide is one of Mercia's lost princesses, than Adelaide herself. Upon her deathbed, dear Aunt Susanna had barely managed to whisper these parting words, "God has saved your life, Adelaide. And now it is time for you to give it back in service to Him as the ruler you were born to be".
Immediately Adelaide is thrust into making life changing decisions; find her sisters, locate an ancient treasure and restore her kingdom, but in what order? Her two beloved cousins, Mitchell and Christopher vow to keep her safe, but at what cost? Mercia's ruthless King Ethelwulf will stop at nothing to destroy her.
Many battles rage through-out this engaging story; battles of conscience, battles between enemies and the more pulsating battles within hearts; which in the end may prove to be the most devastating. What does it mean to be gifted with the wisdom of the Almighty God; it becomes Adelaide's every prayer.
