Giveaway of The Healer's Apprentice!

Who's ready for a giveaway?????


Healer's Apprentice Week is finally coming to a close with an awesome giveaway! Enter for the chance to win an autographed copy of Melanie Dickerson's book, The Healer's Apprentice!

Synopsis: 

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 have read I fairy tale re-telling... well it wasn't a book it was a script. I'm sure I've read a re-telling in a book I just don't remember right now. If that still counts then I really enjoyed it. It was a hilarious twist on Cinderella and Hansel and Gretel.

I've read plenty of historicals, I really enjoy those... as long as they are accurate! I read one that was horrible inaccurate... I wouldn't reccomend it.
I do like medieval books, I think they're great. Actually a few of my favorites are medieval.

My favorite type is either fantasy, sci-fi, or historical fiction, maybe a mix of all of them!

In Christ,
Emily

Hey, girls! Thank you all for commenting! I know I say this a lot, but if you don't win, please request the book at your local library. They will usually order it just because someone requested it, and you can put a hold on it when you request it so that you are the first person to get to check it out and read it. :-)

Sierra said...

I blogged it twice....

Cool giveaway! I would love to enter!

I have actually read a fairy tale retelling. I thought it rather fun! It was interesting to compare the original characters to the "new" characters and see how the author had changed them. It was quite intriguing.
Historicals are deliciously fun! They open new ways for you to think about how an event in history might have impacted an individual character. I love them!
My favorite genre of book is Fantasy.

Hello Prism! I would like to enter :)

Margaret Rowena said...

Let's see here, have I read a re-telling... oh, yes I have! I read Ella Enchanted by Gail Carson Levine. Although I am not such a fan of Levine anymore, I still like this book. It conveyed the character's emotions very well.
Historical fiction is okay with me. I only like it if is VERY authentic and researched, because reading the word 'okay' in a story set in the 1800's is a major turn off of mine.
Last one: I haven't read many books set in the Medieval era, but I have liked the few I have read.

My favorite type of book? A really good one!! :D

I have read basic fairy tale re-tellings, and I only like them if they are well done. I don't usually read historicals though! I'm pretty much open to any time period though :) I'm not sure I have a favorite type of book... although I am drawn to romance and sci-fi! :)

I've heard of fairy tale re-tellings, but I've never read one yet.

I'd LOVE to read "The Healer's Apprentice" because I adore the medieval time period (or the one described in books at least). Christian Fantasy is one of my favorite genres, especially the ones with medieval fantasy styled worlds. I also love historical fiction (with my favorite time period being medieval and American colonial). =)

Have you ever read a fairy tale retelling, and if so, what did you think about it?

I have not yet but I love the concept and can't wait to read.

What about historicals?

I love historicals and as a reader that has been reading for over 55 yrs I have read hundreds of them.


Do you like books set in the medieval period?

Yes, they are so realistic I feel I am back in that time.


Let's hear your favorite type of book!

Oh my, that is a hard one to answer since I love romance, mystery, intrigue, historicals, action, and the list goes on. I do not read erotic or books with a lot of sex action. I would rather leave something to the imagination.
