Description

New York Times bestselling author Melanie Dickerson beautifully re-imagines "The Goose Girl" by the Brothers Grimm into a medieval tale of adventure, loss, and love.

"When it comes to happily-ever-afters, Melanie Dickerson is the undisputed queen of fairy-tale romance, and all I can say is—long live the queen!" —JULIE LESSMAN, award-winning author of The Daughters of Boston, Winds of Change, and Heart of San Francisco series

She lost everything to the scheme of an evil servant.

But she might just gain what she's always wanted . . . if she makes it in time.

The impossible was happening. She, Magdalen of Mallin, was to marry the Duke of Wolfberg. Magdalen had dreamed about receiving a proposal ever since she met the duke two years ago. Such a marriage was the only way she could save her people from starvation. But why would a handsome, wealthy duke want to marry her, a poor baron's daughter? It seemed too good to be true.

On the journey to Wolfberg Castle, Magdalen's servant forces her to trade places and become her servant, threatening not only Magdalen's life, but the lives of those she holds dear. Stripped of her identity and title in Wolfberg, where no one knows her, Magdalen is sentenced to tend geese while she watches her former handmaiden gain all Magdalen had ever dreamed of.

When a handsome shepherd befriends her, Magdalen begins to suspect he carries secrets of his own. Together, Magdalen and the shepherd uncover a sinister plot against Wolfberg and the duke. But with no resources, will they be able to find the answers, the hiding places, and the forces they need in time to save both Mallin and Wolfberg?

        June 1, 2017

        Gr 9 Up-When 19-year-old Magdalen, daughter of the deceased Barron of Mallin, receives a written wedding proposal from 21-year-old Steffan, Duke of Wolfberg, she and her stern and callous mother believe things are looking up for the family and for the people of Mallin. Mother immediately sends Magdalen on her way, but the situation quickly changes when Agnes, her maidservant, and Erlich, Agnes's father, threaten her life if she does not swap places with Agnes. Magdalen quickly discovers that trickery is afoot at Wolfberg Castle: the "duke" to whom imposter Agnes is now engaged is not Steffan but Alexander, his cousin, acting under the control of his father, Lord Hazen. When the real Steffan arrives, he is forced to play the role of a poor shepherd until he can prove his true identity. Magdalen and Steffan must find a way to regain their true identities as they wrestle with their mixed emotions for each other and their concern over the fate of their people. Dickerson develops the male and female protagonists by stripping them of the royalty to which they are accustomed and placing them in the vilest of human states at the time in which this story was set: 1365, during the Holy Roman Empire. Though the plot of this story, inspired by the Brothers Grimm's "The Goose Girl," is very quickly revealed, readers will revel in both Magdalen and Steffan's journey and Agnes and Alexander's. VERDICT Christian fiction fans who enjoy fairy tales and romance will not be disappointed.-Susan Harris, Ridgeway High School, TN
