This is an intriguing medieval tale of the prodigal daughter searching for the lust of the world to only discover more heartache and ruin than she ever imagined possible. Dandelion dreams of escaping her peasant world of poverty and hunger to the luxurious life in a castle full of comfort and security. She discovers the pains of betrayal, abuse, jealousy, abandonment, and a spiritual hunger that devours her soul, giving her no rest in her quest.
In many ways, this book reminds me of Redeeming Love by Francine Rivers with the exception that Angel was forced down her path of destruction as a child devoid of a choice, while Dandelion was a young woman who consciously made her choices. Both heroines had a man who steadfastly loved them with an unconditional love in spite of being rejected and abandoned themselves. This is a beautiful story of love and forgiveness, sacrifice and redemption. The ending is satisfying both romantically and spiritually.
