Taking the original French legend as his starting point, The Story of Silence is a rich, multilayered new story for today's world--sure to delight fans of Uprooted and The Bear and the Nightingale.

There was once, long ago, a foolish king who decreed that women should not, and would not, inherit. Thus when a girl-child was born to Lord Cador--Merlin-enchanted fighter of dragons and Earl of Cornwall--he secreted her away: to be raised a boy so that the family land and honour would remain intact.

That child's name was Silence.

Silence must find their own place in a medieval world that is determined to place the many restrictions of gender and class upon them. With dreams of knighthood and a lonely heart to answer, Silence sets out to define themselves.

Soon their silence will be ended.

What follows is a tale of knights and dragons, of bards, legends and dashing strangers with hidden secrets. Taking the original French legend as his starting point, The Story of Silence is a rich, multilayered new story for today's world--sure to delight fans of Uprooted and The Bear and the Nightingale.
