“If you’re looking for a great story with a little romance, a little mystery and a lot of character, look no further.”
NO MAJOR SPOILERS
The Huntress of Thornbeck Forest by Melanie Dickerson is basically a retelling of “The Swan Princess,” although I did find remnants of “Beauty and the Beast,” but that could just be my opinion.
This story is about a young woman who lives with her wealthy uncle. He has not forced her into any marriages and he allows her to have an education, which is unusual for the time they’re in. She poaches deer in the margrave’s forest at night to help feed the local poor population and during the day she teaches the poor children to read and write.
