Description

One of six sisters, Dortchen Wild lives in the small
German kingdom of Hesse-Cassel in the early nineteenth century. She finds
herself irresistibly drawn to the boy next door, the handsome but very poor
fairy-tale scholar Wilhelm Grimm. It is a time of tyranny and terror. Napoleon
Bonaparte wants to conquer all Europe, and Hesse-Cassel is one of the first
kingdoms to fall. Forced to live under oppressive French rule, Wilhelm and his
brothers quietly rebel by preserving old, half-forgotten tales that had once
been told by firesides of houses grand and small all over the land.

As Dortchen tells Wilhelm some of the most powerful
and compelling stories in what will one day become his and Jacob's famous
fairy-tale collection, their love blossoms. But Dortchen's father will not give
his consent for them to marry, and war, death, and poverty also conspire to
keep the lovers apart. Yet Dortchen is determined to find a way.

Evocative and richly detailed, Kate Forsyth's The Wild Girl masterfully captures one
young woman's enduring faith in love and the power of storytelling.

        January 1, 2016

        Forsyth (Bitter Greens) tells the story of Henriette "Dortchen" Dorothea, wild muse to the Grimm brothers, in this absorbing novel. Dortchen grew up in Hesse-Cassel, a small German kingdom, during the Napoleonic wars. One of six daughters of a brutal father and a laudanum-addicted mother, Dortchen escapes the horrors of her home life by visiting her neighbors, the Grimm family. By sharing old folk tales with the two oldest brothers, Jacob and Wilhelm, she is able to recognize parallels between the stories and her own life. The book is interspersed with familiar fairy tales that listeners will recognize and appreciate. Kate Reading is the perfect narrator for this saga, giving the heroine a sympathetic voice without making her seem weak. VERDICT Strongly recommended for fans of historical fiction. ["This intriguing look at a little-known historical figure has definite appeal for fairy-tale aficionados": LJ 6/1/15 review of the St. Martin's hc.]--Deb West, Gannon Univ., Erie, PA
