After reading The Silent Songbird last year, I became an instant fan of Melanie Dickerson. She has a great talent for weaving a story that is adventurous and engaging. Her characters are full and easy to sympathize with, and upon finishing her tales you feel as if you’ve stepped out of a fairytale.
The Noble Servant is an engaging medieval Christian read that deals with loss and love. It is a retelling of The Goose Girl fairytale. If you aren’t familiar with that fairytale, no loss, for I’ve never even heard of it and enjoyed the re-imagined story tremendously.
If you love fairytales, you’ll enjoy Magdalen and Steffan’s story. The author weaved a wonderful tale that enchanted this reader well into the night turning page after page.
