A Medieval Fairy Tale
By Melanie Dickerson
She hunts so that the poor may eat, but poaching upon the lands of the margrave could cost her everything if she is caught. But no one would ever suspect the niece of a wealthy merchant of poaching.
Jorgen Hartman has become the forester, a gamekeeper, for the margrave Lord Thornbeck. He is determined to do his duty by the margrave and to bring in the poacher of whom he has found evidence.
Odette Menkels has captured the attention of Jorgen Hartman, but he is beneath her in status. There is something about her that won't let him forget her. But a forester has no hope of marrying a daughter of the merchant class, even if she seems taken with him as well.
But Odette has a secret that could destroy any feelings Jorgen has for her. And Jorgen's determination to bring the poacher to justice could very well reveal her secret. But Odette has been deceived. Her efforts for the poor have been thwarted and when she discovers the truth she has a decision to make.
The Huntress of Thornbeck Forest is another delight from Melanie Dickerson. There is a sweet charm within her books that just draws the reader into the story making it difficult to put down until the last page is turned. For readers looking for an uplifting, clean read for the tweens and teens in their life this is one you;ll want to add to your library.
