    By Melanie Dickerson

    Read by Jude Mason

    The one who needs rescuing isn’t always the one in the tower.

    "The Golden Braid is a delightful, page-turning retelling of the story of Rapunzel. Dickerson brings this familiar fairy tale to life with a fresh and unique plot that is full of complex characters, a sweet romance, and danger at every turn. Rapunzel's search to understand her place in the medieval world is a timeless identity struggle that modern readers will relate to. Her growing courage and faith are inspirational and will have readers cheering her on and sad to see the story come to an end." - Jody Hedlund, bestselling author of An Uncertain Choice

  • The Fairest Beauty

    By Melanie Dickerson

    Read by Jude Mason

    This medieval Christian re-telling of Snow White is the 3rd book in the Fairy Tale Romance series.

    "This well-crafted retelling of the Snow White story leaves out magic and potions, substituting instead, human emotions, faults and strengths, and romance in the post-medieval setting...Especially imaginative is the rendering of the group familiarly known as the Seven Dwarfs, although here they are known as the Seven, and each has his own physical or intellectual challenge as well as skill. Solid storytelling, cleverly woven references to the folktale, and historical detail combine in a novel that is a likely popular choice for girls in search of gentle romance." - Booklist

    "..the faith element is clearly evident yet not preachy...Dickerson's tales feature wholesome relationships while still building a strong attraction between the main characters, making this a good choice for teen readers. Dickerson is a masterful storyteller with a carefully crafted plot, richly-drawn characters, and detailed setting. The reader is easily pulled into the story. All of her books are a delightful reimagining of a familiar tale–this one is her best so far! Recommended for young adults and adults who are young at heart." - Christian Library Journal
