Healer's Apprentice Week!
Welcome to Healer's Apprentice Week! The Healer's Apprentice is a new medieval teen fiction book written by debuting author Melanie Dickerson and published by Zondervan. It is absolutely amazing, and I highly recommend it. I will be posting little tidbits about the book and the author all week. To finish it all off, I will be hosting a giveaway of The Healer's Apprentice that the author has so graciously autographed and provided.
To wet your appetites, here is the trailer and synopsis for the book. The book's video truly incredible- like a movie trailer!
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.
When destiny sleeps, it can only be awakened by true love's kiss.
Sounds terrific, does it not? Stay tuned for more!
