Book Overview

In this reverse reimagining of the Cinderella story, secrets and dangerous enemies threaten a fairy-tale romance.

Adela, daughter of the Duke of Hagenheim, is rarely allowed outside the castle walls. But one day, longing for freedom, she sneaks away to the market disguised as a peasant. There, she meets a handsome young woodcarver named Frederick.

Frederick, a poor farmer, is the sole provider for his family, and he often has to defend his mother from his father's drunken rages. He dreams of making a living carving beautiful images into wood, and he is thrilled when the Bishop of Hagenheim commissions him to carve new doors for the cathedral. As Frederick works on the project, he and Adela meet almost daily, and it doesn't take long for them to fall in love. Yet her true identity remains hidden from him.

When disaster separates them, Adela and Frederick find themselves caught in the midst of deceptions far more dangerous than innocent disguises. As the powerful lords set against them proceed with their villainous plans, secrets emerge that put Frederick and Adela's future at risk.

  • Full-length clean fairy-tale reimagining
  • The final Hagenheim story; can be read as a stand-alone
  • Includes discussion questions for book clubs

   Not very good
I have read a lot of Melanie Dickerson's books, but this one was just skimming.
   Her books are always great!
I have never read anything that I did not like by this author. The read was amazing! It's!
   A Pleasant Dream
I was surprised from the beginning. I enjoyed the fairy tale and didn't know it. After Fredrick was kidnapped, I didn't want to put it down. I had to find out the ending.
   Melanie Dickerson is a great author.
Melanie Dickerson is a writer. My granddaughter has read all of the books I bought for her. She loves them!
   The last one
Melanie Dickerson wrote The Peasant's Dream, the last book in the Hangenheim series. It's a little sad to have finished this story. The characters in the series are familiar and engaging. Adela and Frederick's journey was not different. There was romance, danger, and faith. She has written a beautiful closing to the series with twists to Cinderella and an exploration of nature versus nuture.
   a hard to put down book!
The story was very well written. It doesn't have sexual or objectionable content and anyone can read it. It is very good.
A beautiful story of love and determination. The character of a person is shown even when treated badly.
