A multi-award winner, it’s no surprise that Publisher’s Weekly calls The Fairytale Keeper “a…resonant tale set late in the 13th century..with unexpected plot twists. An engaging story of revenge.”
Adelaide’s mother, Katrina, was the finest storyteller in Cologne, but she left one story untold-that of her daughter, Snow White. The fever claimed Adelaide’s mother like a thousand others in Cologne where the people die without last rites and the dead are dumped in a vast pit outside the city walls. In an effort to save Katrina’s soul, Adelaide’s father obtains a secret funeral by bribing the parish priest, Father Soren.
Soren commits an unforgivable atrocity, pushing Adelaide toward vengeance. But corruption in Cologne reaches far beyond Soren to the empire’s kingmaker. The cost of settling scores quickly escalates. Avenging the mother she lost may cost Adelaide everything she has left.
