About the Book
During a time when legends were born . . .
A poor maidservant struggling to survive, a brave knight who secretly loves her, and a chalice that has the power to unite them.
Nursemaid to the Earl of Likness’s two young daughters, Mikaela despises the earl for his cruelty to his subjects, and she longs for the day when she can make a difference in the lives of her suffering friends and family.
As one of the Knights of Brethren, Gunnar is on a mission to find the sacred chalice for the queen, convinced it’s the cure for her deadly bleeding disease. His quest takes him home, and he soon learns his brother, the earl, may know more about the chalice than he lets on.
As Gunnar reunites with Mikaela, the maiden he’s always loved, he tries to keep his feelings for her a secret, desperate to protect her from his brother. But as they venture into the perilous Hardanger Forest and battle to survive, will Gunnar realize her love is worth fighting for?
The real story of the Holy Grail . . .
About the Author
Jody Hedlund is an award-winning and bestselling author of inspirational historical romances for both youth and adults.
As a busy mama-writer, she has the wonderful privilege of teaching her crew of 5 children at home. In between grading math papers and giving spelling tests, she occasionally does a load of laundry and washes dishes. When she's not busy being a mama, you can find her in front of her laptop working on another of her page-turning stories.
She loves reading almost as much as she loves writing, especially when it also involves chocolate and coffee.
Jody Hedlund has crafted another sweet, thrilling, and fairytale style medieval romance in Ensnared. This story focuses on the unlikely relationship between Gunner, a knight, and Mikaela, a maid servant. They have been friends from childhood, but run in completely different circles, due to their status differences. Throughout the story their friendship blossoms into romance, as they work together to overcome the best of the forest. Although a retelling of the Holy Grail, the story focuses more on the relationship between Gunner and Mikaela than the actual story of the Holy Grail. Readers may want a bit more detail on the Holy Grail and finding the chalice part of the story, but will not be disappointed with the sweet romance. This is a story that readers will delight in.
