Arabella has resigned herself to the position of mother and wife, considering herself lucky to be in a much easier life than she had previously known. But there are clouds of war gathering from the
North-West as King Ernulf, Prince Louis's half brother, begins to suspect him of eyeing the crown. Now, Arabella must rise to the occasion to protect her children and her own life.

I am thinking of rewriting the story from chapter 9. I will keep what I remove so if it is preferred, I will replace what I remove. I will keep certain elements, but the overall will be changed. If
there are any questions or concerns, please contact me.
