Review: The Golden Braid by Melanie Dickerson

The Golden BraidThis was such a great story! The Golden Braid is the first Melanie Dickerson book that I have read and now I plan to catch up on all of the other books of hers that I have waiting for me on my kindle and my physical bookshelf.

This book had it all…mysterious circumstances behind Rapunzel’s upbringing, villains, danger, heroes, romance, and a beautiful message of God’s love.

I enjoyed the story from start to finish and it just got more and more interesting as I continued reading. I loved watching both Rapunzel and Gerek’s emotional growth throughout the book. It was a very satisfying story.

(5 stars)

I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

ABOUT THE BOOK:
The Golden Braid
The one who needs rescuing isn’t always the one in the tower…
Rapunzel can throw a knife better than any man. She paints beautiful flowering vines on the walls of her plaster houses. She sings so sweetly she can coax even a beast to sleep. But there are two things she is afraid her mother might never allow her to do: learn to read and marry.Fiercely devoted to Rapunzel, her mother is suspicious of every man who so much as looks at her daughter and warns her that no man can be trusted. After a young village farmer asks for Rapunzel’s hand in marriage, Mother decides to move them once again—this time, to the large city of Hagenheim.

The journey proves treacherous, and after being rescued by a knight—Sir Gerek—Rapunzel, in turn, rescues him farther down the road. As a result, Sir Gerek agrees to repay his debt to Rapunzel by teaching her to read. Could there be more to him than his arrogance and desire to marry for riches and position?

As Rapunzel acclimates to life in a new city, she uncovers a mystery that will forever change her life. In this Rapunzel story unlike any other, a world of secrets and treachery are about to be revealed after seventeen years. How will Rapunzel finally take control of her own destiny? And who will prove faithful to a lowly peasant girl with no one to turn to?
