When Dan arrives to train as a page in her father’s court, feisty young Elinor falls deeply in love with him. When her father discovers, he is furious. He has other plans for his daughter. Will Elinor have to submit to his will or will she be able to find her own happiness?

Synopsis

A Lily, A Rose by Sally Nicholls

Beautiful romance from an award-winning author. Lady Elinor of Hardford has fallen in love for the first time, with Dan, her cousin and knight-in-training. But her father has other plans. She must marry his friend, Sir William of Courtney - and he's nearly 50! Ellie must draw on all her skills to work out a solution to her dilemma. Can she change her father's mind? And will she ever get to marry Dan?

Particularly suitable for struggling, reluctant and dyslexic readers of 12+

About the Author

Sally Nicholls

I was born in Stockton-on-Tees, just after midnight, in a thunderstorm. My father died when I was two, and my brother Ian and I were brought up my mother. I always wanted to write - when people asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up, I used to say "I'm going to be a writer" - very definite.

I went to two secondary schools - a little Quaker school in North Yorkshire (where it was so cold that thick woolly jumpers were part of the school uniform) and a big comprehensive. I was very lonely at the little school, but I made friends at the comprehensive and got on all right. I didn't like being a teenager very much, though.

I now live in a little house in Oxford, writing stories, and trying to believe my luck.
