I've always loved fairy tales, but I was unfamiliar with the story that inspired Dickerson's 3rd novel in the Medieval Fairy Tale series. A noble lady becomes a goose girl and must find a way to win her duke - if only she can save his life first! It may come as a surprise that this book is actually an adult fiction novel, but once you get reading, the fairy tale roots become inconsequential as the characters and plot grow. Dickerson's way with words, her dedication to honoring historical and literary accuracies, and her gentle interweaving of faith into these novels make them a hit for me. In The Noble Servant, we are reconnected to Magdalen, a charming character who was easy to love in the 2nd book of the series. Magdalen finds herself in a precarious and life-threatening position as a servant in the house of her would-be husband, the duke of Wolfberg (whom she met at The Beautiful Pretender's ball). The only problem is, no one but Magdalen realizes that the real duke is missing. With the help of a handsome shepherd, she tries to uncover the dangerous and complicated plot that is brewing in the halls of the castle. Will she find love in the process?
