Rose is the healer’s apprentice at Hagenheim Castle.  She doesn’t like the sight of blood, but she needs to prove herself.  She doesn’t want to marry any of the elderly bachelors and widows her mother wants her to marry.

Lord Hamlin, the future duke, falls for Rose when she takes care of his injury from a boar.  Hamlin is unable to act upon his feelings, because he is betrothed to a young lady in hiding.

Rose has fallen for Lord Hamlin, but she knows he is betrothed to another.  She needs God to help her determine her own destiny.  Can she do it?

About the author- Melanie Dickerson lives in Alabama with her husband and two daughters.  She has a bachelors degree in special education of the hearing impaired and has been a teacher and missionary.  Her novel has been a finalist seven times in Romance Writers of America sponsored contests.
My thoughts- I loved reading this book.  I thought it was a great idea to use the basic storyline of Sleeping Beauty.  Rose is a wonderful example of how the young ladies of today should behave.  She did have moments of weakness, as most of us do, but she was strong when it was most important, when Lord Rupert and Lord Hamlin presented temptation or were the temptations themselves.  Even when she had the chance to be with both of them she held to her morals with the knowledge that God was with her and would help her.
I thought this book was wonderful and I would highly recommend this book to all young ladies so they learn better ways to behave and treat romance.
