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.
I'll be honest, I read the second book in this series before the first. (The order doesn't matter.) I had been avoiding this series for awhile, mainly because the hype in the Christian book blogging community was so high for this book! I know see why.

I was hooked from the first page! I seriously did not want to put this book down. While the ending was predictable, I was found myself screaming at the characters through most of the book to realize the true situation and not stress out about unnecessary things.

The one thing I really did not like about this novel was the love triangle. I'm sorry, it's just so overdone! Especially when it is two brothers. It just needs to stop.

This series is a great option for anyone who loves fairy tale re-tellings, especially romances! Definitely pick them all up.

I received this book free for review through a giveaway. I was not required to post a review, and the thoughts contained herein are my own.
