A knightly fairy tale of royalty and dragons, of midwives with secrets and dashing strangers in dark inns. 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.
