Two Hearts. One Hope.

     Rose has been appointed as a healer's apprentice at Hagenheim Castle, a rare opportunity for a woodcutter's daughter like her. While she often feels uneasy at the sight of blood, Rose is determined to prove herself capable. Failure will mean returning home to marry the aging bachelor her mother has chosen for her—a bloated, disgusting merchant who makes Rose feel ill.

     When Lord Hamlin, the future duke, is injured, it is Rose who must tend to him. As she works to heal his wound, she begins to understand emotions she's never felt before and wonders if he feels the same. But falling in love is forbidden, as Lord Hamlin is betrothed to a mysterious young woman in hiding. As Rose's life spins toward confusion, she must take the first steps on a journey to discover her own destiny.

     Now, this is a story based (loosely) on Sleeping Beauty. Written by Melanie Dickerson, this book is a sweet story of two people, both betrothed to separate people, but both drawn to each other. One the duke of a castle, the other a lowly herbwoman. 
     But circumstances, (or is it God?), time and time again bring them together. Will the Duke give up Rose to marry a woman he has never seen? Never loved?
