Summary, etc.:
Frederick, a peasant farmer's son who dreams of earning a living using his God-given talent as a woodcarver, falls in love with Adela, a duke's daughter who yearns to prove herself as an artist. Includes discussion questions.
Adela, youngest daughter of Duke Wilhelm of Hagenheim, is never allowed outside of the castle walls. She sneaks away one day to the market disguised as a peasant, and meets a poor farmer with a kind heart. Frederick earns the income for his family and defends his mother from his father's drunken rages. He carves figures, animals, and scenes into wood, and he's asked to carve these scenes into cathedral doors when his talent is noticed. When he gets swept up into a plan to kidnap the duke's daughter, both are shaken by what they learn about the other-- and by the villainous plans that keep them apart. -- adapted from jacket

    Adela wants to leave Hagenheim Castle and be free of the expectations in her life—like marrying a nobleman she doesn't love. Woodworker and farmer Frederick wants to take care of his mother, but also wants to be known for his intricate wood carvings. The two cross paths on a market day, and their meet-cute turns into a daydream for the both of them. But after a particularly terrible fight with his drunken father, Frederick, dreaming of escape, is talked into a plot to steal gold by kidnapping the Duke of Hagemheim's daughter—Adela. The two are separated during the foolishly planned abduction and both fear they will never meet again. With Adela's betrothed, Lord Barthold, working against them, their happily-ever-after could be in great danger. This skewed, somewhat predictable Cinderella story is written in a slow-moving, old-fashioned style, but overall it's a charming read for diehard fans of Dickerson (The Golden Braid, 2015), or for those who truly enjoy fairy tales retold.
