Hush
Hush An Irish Princess' Tale By Napoli, Donna Jo Book - 2008

"Fifteen-year-old Melkorka is a 10th-century Irish princess and a self-centered chatterbox who is accustomed to being pampered. While her father, the King, prepares to avenge a Viking attack that disfigured Melkorka's brother, Mel and her younger sister Brigid are sent away for their own safety - but on the way to their refuge, the sisters are captured by Russian slavers. On board their slave ship, Mel's only protection is her refusal to speak, which makes the superstitious captain and crew wary of her. This lavishly (and sometimes brutally) detailed story of strength in adversity is based on an Icelandic legend."
