Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

When Dashti, a maid, and Lady Saren, her mistress, are shut in a tower for seven years for Sarens refusal to marry a man she despises, the two prepare for a very long and dark imprisonment.

As food runs low and the days go from broiling hot to freezing cold, it is all Dashti can do to keep them fed and comfortable. But the arrival outside the tower of Sarens two suitors—one welcome, and the other decidedly less so—brings both hope and great danger, and Dashti must make the desperate choices of a girl whose life is worth more than she knows.

With Shannon Hales lyrical language, this forgotten but classic fairy tale from the Brothers Grimm is reimagined and reset on the central Asian steppes; it is a completely unique retelling filled with adventure and romance, drama and disguise.

Synopsis:

Set in a medieval Asian land, a classic Brothers Grimm tale is reimagined by a Newbery Honor author. In this completely unique retelling, filled with adventure and romance, drama and disguise, a young maid sacrifices her freedom to accompany her mistress into exile. Illustrations.

This is a really good book when at first I checked it out I thought I wasn't going to like it but I just kept reading and I loved it Dashti is like a really good girl and lady saren is just so sad. I really liked this book and highly recommend it.
