The Golden Braid by Melanie Dickerson

The Rapunzel fairytale story is reimagined in a new YA novel, The Golden Braid, by Melanie Dickerson. 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. 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?

About the Book
The Golden Braid The Golden Braid (Thomas Nelson, November 2015)
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?

My review;

"The Golden Braid" by Melanie Dickerson is a different story about the beautiful Rapunzel. Rapunzel is every little girls hero. In this version she is living with her mother who watches her every minute. Her mother will not let her learn to read and she will probably never let her get married and have a future. When another man asks to marry her they leave the town. During this flight she meets Sir Gerek.   They start see each other while he teaches her to read. But, she realizes that there is a secret that she knows nothing about. Who will she look to for help? I give this book a 5/5. I was given this book by Litfuse Publicity Company and all opinions a re mine.
