She lost everything to the scheme of an evil servant.
Review: I've looked forward to reading The Noble Servant since it was set in the world where we had previously met the Margrave. This book continued on with a character we in the past book, Magdelen. She is a daughter of a poor baron, who died, and is now given the chance to marry someone who will provide for her and her people. But after she arrives as a servant instead of a bride, she realizes that there is more going on than just a wedding to be announced, or her former servants trickery. Now tended the geese, she keeps a careful eye on those around her, and the one she was said to be betrothed too. But once she meets a man who she thinks she recognizes, it is only so long before the lord of the castle finds out who else faking their identity.
I love the setting of these books; I can almost imagine the castles and villages mentioned and are "placed" throughout Germany. Though not my favorite book by Melanie Dickerson, I did enjoy this book, and though I have never read "The Goose Girl," I look forward to discovering this "new" fairytale.
If you are looking for a sweet, easy read, The Noble Servant is a great story for any tween to read.
