MY REVIEW OF THIS READ: This is my first and will not be my last read from Melanie. Who ever thought that you could re-tell a fairy tale? Melanie has done it in the re-telling of Rapunzel.
Rapunzel has moved from village to village. Anytime she thinks her mother is settling them down and she begins to make friends or a guy gets close enough to ask for her hand in marriage, her mother packs all of their belongings and moves them to a new village.
This time they move to a city instead of a village. The road is treacherous and they end up being rescued by Sir Gerek the knight. His kindness makes an impression on Rapunzel, but her mother wants no part of him and puts off his kindness.
Will Rapunzel discover the secrets from long ago that her mother kept hidden from her? Will Sir Gerek be the one true friend she can turn to in need and help her? Come join Melanie on this re-telling of Rapunzel.
