Book Synopses: 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.
Summary: This is a retelling of The Goose Girl and The Prince and The Pauper, We follow Magdalen and Steffan the Duke of Wolfberg. Magdalen gets a surprised letter from Steffan and it’s hoping he asks her hand in marriage, she has been hoping for this proposal since the first time they met. Steffan was send away to study by his uncle but upon returning back home she finds things have changed. Both Magdalen and Steffan have to pretend they are not who they are. There is a lot of lies, deceit and unimaginable betrayal by the people they trusted.
Characters: The main characters are Magdalen and Steffan the Duke of Wolfberg, both characters were well written, likable and humble.
The writing: I found the writing to be clean, even though we do get some fight scenes and murder scene they were not gruesome. I love how Melanie Dickerson twisted the story and made it an enjoyable with suspense, a little humor and a very nice ending.
Final thoughts: This book is book #3 of The Medieval Fairy Tale series but can be read as a stand alone, some characters from previous books were mentioned but it did not affected the story at all I was able to follow it with no problems. The story was slow at times but overall, a nice enjoyable read, the more I read Melanie Dickerson’s book the more I like her clean writing.
