New York Times bestselling author Melanie Dickerson beautifully re-imagines "The Goose Girl" by the Brothers Grimm into a medieval tale of adventure, loss, and love.
"When it comes to happily-ever-afters, Melanie Dickerson is the undisputed queen of fairy-tale romance, and all I can say islong live the queen!" JULIE LESSMAN, award-winning author of The Daughters of Boston, Winds of Change, and Heart of San Francisco series
She lost everything to the scheme of an evil servant.
But she might just gain what shes always wanted . . . if she makes it in time.
The impossible was happening. She, Magdalen of Mallin, was to marry the Duke of Wolfberg. Magdalen had dreamed about receiving a proposal ever since she met the duke two years ago. Such a marriage was the only way she could save her people from starvation. But why would a handsome, wealthy duke want to marry her, a poor barons daughter? It seemed too good to be true.
On the journey to Wolfberg Castle, Magdalens servant forces her to trade places and become her servant, threatening not only Magdalens life, but the lives of those she holds dear. Stripped of her identity and title in Wolfberg, where no one knows her, Magdalen is sentenced to tend geese while she watches her former handmaiden gain all Magdalen had ever dreamed of.
When a handsome shepherd befriends her, Magdalen begins to suspect he carries secrets of his own. Together, Magdalen and the shepherd uncover a sinister plot against Wolfberg and the duke. But with no resources, will they be able to find the answers, the hiding places, and the forces they need in time to save both Mallin and Wolfberg?

bookstoregal4 Stars Out Of 5another good fairy tale retelingJune 13, 2017bookstoregalQuality: 0Value: 0Meets Expectations: 0Another good retold fairy tale by Melanie Dickerson. I'm glad that I read The Beautiful Pretender first, as this is a bit of a sequel -several of the same characters in both books. I had actually never heard of the fairy tale about the goose girl, but I enjoyed this book. :) Great characters. A little mystery/suspense, romance; a little bit different than the normal story. In some ways it's a little predictable, which is why I gave it just 4 stars. Pretty good overall. So thankful that there are some clean books by Christian authors for young adults!
Thanks, Fiction Guild!!
MauriKansasAge: 45-54Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5The Noble ServantJune 1, 2017MauriKansasAge: 45-54Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This is the story of Lady Magdalen, a baron's daughter, who we first met in The Beautiful Pretender. She receives a letter from the Duke of Wolfberg, proposing marriage, so travels there with three of her servants. Two of them force her to switch identities with her maid. Their switched identities are not the only ones. There is much intrigue and deception going on at Wolfberg. The story has all the elements of a great fairy tale: the evil uncle, a young "damsel in distress" (though this one is quite capable), the handsome duke, a castle, and much adventure. The love story is rather sweet, seeming to catch them (especially the duke) by surprise, and the ending most satisfactory.
Britt98Grand Prairie, TXAge: 35-44Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5Enjoyable and SweetMay 29, 2017Britt98Grand Prairie, TXAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 4The Noble Servant was an entertaining fairy tale with a light romance and some villains who were up to no good! This wasn't my favorite of the author's novels that I've read, however, I did enjoy it and found it to be a rather easy and fast read for me. I also appreciated that it was a clean story and definitely appropriate for teen readers, as well.
I liked the two main characters, Magdalen and Steffan, and enjoyed watching them work to overcome not only those who were plotting against them, but also ideas and attitudes that were the result of past painful experiences. Overall, I enjoyed this sweet story.
I received a complimentary copy of this book. All opinions are my own.
ReginaF5 Stars Out Of 5A delightful and exciting read!May 17, 2017ReginaFQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5When I requested this book through Netgalley, I didnt realize it was a fairytale story. I am not really into those books. However, since I was approved, I went ahead and read it. I was so glad I did. This book was amazing! It did not read like a fairytale!
Magdalene is an inspiration. She has a delightful and beautiful way about her. Steffen was a Duke, and Dukes tend to be more resilient or stuffy. But, he didnt seem like this. Both Magdalene and Steffen had to overcome quite a few obstacles, including trusting each other.
There is a lot of intrigue and danger amongst these pages! And mystery creeps around the corner. You will be delighted and surprised at some encounters along the way. This book is a definite page turner! Highly recommend!

Laura HiltonHorseshoe Bend, ARAge: 45-54Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5great bookMay 17, 2017Laura HiltonHorseshoe Bend, ARAge: 45-54Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5THE NOBLE SERVANT was a very good book. The beginning of the story started with adventure and I really liked that. It was a very fast-paced adventure all the way through.
The characters were very well-written. I really liked how they expressed their feelings. I loved the prayers they said when they got upset.
There was a lot of distrust on both sides and they learned to get over that. The villains seemed to lack backbone, they were doing sneaky underhanded things and didn't want to directly face the main characters. "I was provided a free copy of this book. All opinions are my own."
