Review:The Merchant's Daughter by Melanie Dickerson

I read a great story that not only had a happy ending, but helped me as well with the scriptures that were shared. Its a clean old fashioned romance.  I would definately read more from Melanie Dickerson.
Annabel, her two older brothers and her mom where on trial for not working the land for the last 3 years. When Annabel father was alive they were rich and spoiled. With her fathers death and loss of his ships they were poor.
Her brother accepted the baliff offer of marrying Annabel forgiving thier debt.
Annabel did not want to marry someone old as her father and would rather she worked their family debt by being a servant for 3 years to the new Lord Ranulf.
Annabel dream was to join a nunnery and be able to study the bible for herself.
Lord Ranulf has scars and injuries from saving a servant from a wild animal. His wife and child died 3 years ago. He is building a big home and brought of workers when he moved to the area. Lord Ranulf also lost his eye in the accident and asked if anyone could read.  Annabel finally volunteered to read to him.  He wanted someone to read the bible to him.
So Annabel got her prayers of reading in the bible.
Tom the Bayliff would not stop trying to force her to marry him.
The story touched me and left me feeling good. I was given this ebook to read in exchange of honest review by Netgalley.
