The Prince and the Maid
Prince Charles Davenport is next in line to rule over the island of Saint Brendan. He comes off as arrogant and cold hearted, like his father King Philip, but is actually a kind and fair ruler. What happens when he wanders to the kitchen one night for a snack to find a maid hard at work while everyone sleeps? Will she be able to uncover his kind ways, or cower before she has the chance? Will he be able to save her from the abuse she faces?
Hope Abelman is a lonely maid who works in the palace. Although she isn't the head maid, she does more work than all of the maids combined. She covers for their mishaps, works late nights and early mornings, gives up her food portions to the weak, and gives her bed to the children. She lives in the poorest conditions and is abused by King Philip who blames her for all the mistakes in the palace. She was working on the pile of dishes in the sink, when the prince walks in! Will she learn to trust him, or let her fears take over? How will they explain to the King and Queen?
