Anonymous, nameless, Adelaide Schumacher should have been lost to history. Medieval girls don’t make legends. If they’re lucky to live long enough, they make babies.
But Adelaide’s life is anything but average. How else could the daughter of a shoemaker and a storyteller end up immortalized as the real Snow White? How else could she become the origin of Grimm’s fairytales?
The Fairytale Keeper series weaves the vivid settings and rampant corruption of Medieval Europe with Grimm’s famous fairytales, breathing life into those well-known damsels, heroes, and villains from our childhood. Real life doesn’t end in happily ever after and neither do these tales. That’s what leaves readers wondering where fact ends and fiction begins.
The Fairytale Keeper, the first in this series, was a quarter-finalist in Amazon’s 2013 Breakthrough Novel Contest and an Indie Book of the Day that Publisher’s Weekly calls a “resonant tale set late in the 13th century… with unexpected plot twists. An engaging story of revenge and redemption.”
