Forgiveness and love create a beautiful story!
The Silent Songbird is a wonderful woven tale of deception, heroics deeds, forgiveness and love.

She and her companion tell Westley that she is mute in they're looking for work so he takes them to Glynval to work for his family. All is good, well as good as it can be for someone who has never been a servant, let just say Eva talent is definitely her voice!

In calling for help she reveals her lie and has to face the consequences of that lie on her budding relationship with Westley.
