Product Description

A dying king makes his son his heir--on one condition. Vain Prince Raphael must marry a woman who is his equal in beauty, intelligence, and wealth...where is this woman? A search throughout the kingdom proves fruitless. Then the lovely Rosamund appears at the palace, as if my magic, and Raphael is certain he has found his wife. She is intelligent and wealthy, as well as beautiful--certainly his equal, he thinks. But what does the mysterious Rosamund think? Recommended for ages 7 to 10.
