Why the author wrote this book:
The Fairetellings Series brings classic tales of betrayal, love, and transformation to a world without magic. Broken promises, jealousy, and vengeance wreak havoc instead of spells. The characters' faiths sustain them during trials, and readers see that God not magic is the key to enduring tribulations in a fallen world.
