Ever since raiders from the north began attacking villages, Lady Nicole Montagna has known that defending her people would come at a cost. The betrothal of her sister Chloe to a neighboring lord seems the perfect solution, forging a powerful alliance. But shortly before the wedding, Nicole is shocked to discover that her sister is with child - and not by her husband-to-be. Now she must make a choice. She has just hours to decide....
Should she tell her soldier brother - who will take swift, ruthless action to ensure the family's safety? Should she hold her tongue, let her sister deceive her husband into believing the child is his - and then hope Chloe can get away with the lie? Should she tell her family, hoping they will know the right thing to do?
With the help of a magic mirror, Nicole lives out each path, fighting to protect herself and those she loves with the weapons she has: wits, herbs, and fortitude. But no matter her cleverness, neither she nor her family can escape unscathed - for there are repercussions she could never have foreseen, involving her own heart....

What a fun book!
I've listened to all of Barb Hendee's Choice books and she's written another winner. These books are really unique and fun to listen to. Rendah Heywood does a really good job narrating. She's got a lovely voice and can move the story along nicely. The only thing I would say is she could drop her voice a little when she's doing the male parts. That helps a lot if you get confused who's speaking in a fast paced performance. With that said, she's still very good and that's just me being a little picky.
I hope Ms. Hendee releases more of these "Choice" books, they are so much fun!
