Synopsis of Singer by Jean Thesman:

Gwenore’s mother is the evil Rhiamon, whose thirst for power transcends any morality. For years, Gwenore has lived in terrified captivity, not understanding why her mother so loathes her. Then she manages to escape, along with her longtime nursemaid and a mysterious enchanter-priest.

First Gwenore is hidden at an abbey where she learns to read and make music. Then she is discovered. Her name and appearance changed, she is moved to the women’s healing community of Blessingwood, and is taught medicine and herbwork. But then tragedy strikes again, and she must leave.

As Mary Singer, she becomes nursemaid to the children of the magical king of Lir-until the king marries Rhiamon. Singer knows that her mother will try to kill the children. What can she do to save their lives-and her own? Based on the classic Irish folk-tale “The Children of Lir,” this swiftly paced fantasy will keep readers turning the pages.
