Format: Perfect Paperback
The world of beauty and danger created by this new author is set in the High Middle ages and is a spiritual analogy of the inner souls search for our heavenly home and Father. As we all are, the main character is in a strange world, separated from her real family and unaware of who she truly is and of her royal blood. Like all the souls on earth Annabelle must search her heart and her memory to realise that she is a true princess, daughter of the King. She must learn to deal with the evil of her world and find her way back home.

Ruth Apollonia has a true talent for creating three-dimensional characters. Annabelle, kidnapped at five and raised on a deserted Island, wins the readers heart in the first few chapters. Her thoughts and ways are so realistic that the reader quickly identifies with the confused young girl who tries to recall the glimpses of her past hidden in her juvenile mind. The tension increases with every paragraph. She is trained in self-defense by Peter, the man who is protecting her. She faces a future of danger from the Demonites, her family's enemies.

As a Catholic author, Apollonia weaves the sacraments and Catholic doctrine throughout the story line without being overdone and while faith is clearly a large part of the author's message - it is never heavy or preachy. Instead, it falls naturally within the plot. The plot is both action- packed and unique. Apollonia has created a world of romantic settings where kings and knights walk the world of Anchony with both courage and valor. Knaves and cruelty roam the land with evil and murder. Into this world comes the rescued woman-child Annabelle, unaware of her importance and role in this strange new world. She is protected by a handsome knight named Nicholas who quickly falls in love with his young charge.

I highly recommend this book. I could not put his book down and found myself reading early into the morning as I would get swept away in the story. For those interested in an adventure, mystery and romance books with ties into the Catholic beliefs of the Middle ages, you have found the right book. Though the characters have Catholic beliefs it is not a book that is pushy to those readers of other belief structures. All ages will enjoy the story of Annabelle.
This book does flow right into the second book, Annabelle of Anchony: Heart's Relief. I do recommend you read this series in order as the Burdens of the Mind develops a series of complex characters for the second book, Heart's Relief.

This book if the first book from Ruth Apollonia. It is a very good and interesting book. It gets you hooked from the first chapter and keeps you on your toes through the end. When you get to the end you are wanting more. I am so hoping there is another book following this one. To see how Annabelle proceeds through her life. If you love books with a Christian base, Mystery, and Romance, you will love this book. I recommend this book to anyone. Thank you Ruth Apollonia for writing this. Please let there be more books from you.

More About the Author

Born and raised in central Missouri, Ruth Apollonia attended the University of Missouri-Columbia and obtained a Master of Occupational Therapy. In 2008, she ventured south on her clinical and eventually accepted a position at a not-for-profit hospital.

She began writing Annabelle's story as a college student--for her own enjoyment. Deciding it was a good story and wanting to share it with the world, she sent her manuscript into Tate Publishing to see if they thought the same; two months later, December 2010, the publishing contract was signed. Production began May of 2011 and one year later, May 08, 2012, her first novel was released. Ruth's second book, Annabelle of Anchony: Heart's Relief, was released in March of 2013.

Her first book, Annabelle of Anchony: Burdens of the Mind, was awarded the Catholic Arts and Letters Award for adult fiction in 2013 by the Catholic Writers Guild.

Employed as a full-time occupational therapist, Ruth writes when she has the time--on the weekends. She is currently working on her third book.
