All her life Gretchen has been teased for being small. Although she has learned to ignore the various cruelties of the townspeople - the taunts and comments, the pointing and outright stares - she secretly wishes that she could find a place to call her own. When she hears a minstrel's tale of a hidden farm populated by little people such as herself, Gretchen is cautiously optimistic. Could there possibly be a place out in the world where she would be seen as a person and not just as an oddity?
Determined to find this wonderful place, Gretchen sets out on her journey - and is eventually welcomed into their home by the mostly male inhabitants. The Klein family: Frau Marta, her husband Herr Dieter, and their sixteen-year-old son; and their four farmhands: Gunther, Klaus, Rudolph and Lars all act most appropriately towards Gretchen and are happy to meet her. Lars in particular woos her with his gentle and kindhearted nature and his quiet strength.
Delighted to have finally found acceptance among people who look like her, Gretchen soon settles into a peaceful routine at the farm. However, danger looms on the horizon when Gretchen meets a troubled young woman one morning, while on her way to market. After hearing the young lady's desperate story, she offers the runaway princess - Angelika of Weissland - shelter at the Little Farm.
Although Ange is safe for a few weeks, she soon feels compelled to return to her stepmother's castle. Determined to protect her late father's subjects from Lady Sybelle's cruelty, she resolves to provide as much assistance as she can in secret - in the guise of 'The Tattered Princess'. Wandering somewhere nearby, Richard initially finds himself admiring Ange's forthright manner and compassionate nature. However, as his feelings grow stronger, Richard soon finds himself falling in love with the beautiful princess.
When he is eventually compelled to tell the queen that she is no longer the fairest one of the realm, she is enraged by Richard's revelation. She vows to find Princess Angelika and destroy her, as well as anyone who might try to help the young woman. It soon becomes apparent that if either Gretchen or Richard are to have their own happily ever afters, they must team up to break the mirror's spell before the queen kills them all...
I have always enjoyed reading fairytale retellings, and this one was just as entertaining. I was intrigued by the plot of this story and avidly wanted to know how it would develop. I would give this novella a definite A! and look forward to reading more from this author in the future.
Full Disclosure: 'The Magic Mirror and the Seventh Dwarf' by Tia Nevitt read and reviewed by Mareena McGirr, an avid reader and book reviewer from Albany, New York. Many thanks to the website 'Apple I-Books' as I acquired a copy of this book from there.
This is a retelling of Snow White and the seventh Dwarfs. I liked it. Had a lot of same characters but different.
Evil step-mother who was the fairest, she has taken the princess thrown till she comes of age if she lives that long. The Queen has a magic mirror that can not lie to her. She can ask three questions only morning and night.
The tattered Princess wears ill fitted clothes that the Queen makes her wear. She is kind and tries to help her people behind her step-mothers back.
The 5 dwarfs that live together and farm. It is run by a Dwarf couple. a minstral goes around telling tales of the dwarfs and thier farm.
Lars used to be a court jester has come now to work the farm and be with others of his kind.
Gretchen heres about the farm and she gets the minstral to take her thier. She wants to find a husband. She travels in disguise of a boy. No one knows her a women till Lars points that out at first meeting.
Magic Mirror is Prince Richard he can't refuse to tell the queen the truth but he tries to give her the least amount of good knowledge as he can. He travels around lost tries not to learn anything useful for the queen to find out.
I enjoyed reading The Magic Mirror and seeing the story in a whole new way. This is a very clean story and fast to read. Any age could enjoy it.
I was given this ebook to read in exchange of honest review from Netgalley.
