Avelina never intended to fall in love with the man. In fact she tries to promote the qualities of another lovely young woman to him, but the Margrave falls for Avelina. Avelina soon begins to fear for her safety within the castle and must find a way to safely return to her family.
The way Melanie Dickerson takes a classic fairy tale and crafts it into a plausible reality is simply beautiful. Until these novels I had never cared much for a medieval time period for a setting. I love the way she thoughtfully weaves spiritual truths and internal conflicts for the characters. I never feel she is preaching at her audience, but I see the truth of God’s Word shining through her heroes and heroines. Her conversational style is a pleasure to read.
