As the youngest daughter of the Duke of Hagenheim, Adela feels stifled.  When she sneaks into the marketplace one day, she meets Frederick. Frederick is the son of an angry farmer, but he wants a different life as a woodcarver.  That day he takes a chance to show his talent to the local church and he earns a commission for new chapel doors. Taking his mother and sister he moves to town, meaning he can see Adela more often. But his village life follows him as he gets peripherally involved in a plot to kidnap the Duke’s daughter – not knowing that the daughter is Adela.  The road back to love will be dangerous and complicated!

For those who like light romantic novels based on familiar fairy tales, this Dickerson series is a perfect fit.
