The Goose Girl is a lesser-known fairy tale for me, but I have loved The Prince and the Pauper since I was little. The Noble Servant combines the two in a sweet story of friendship, growing love, and courage to do what is right no matter what the cost.
Melanie Dickerson paints picturesque scenes with her words and creates characters who make you want to cheer them on. This book is no exception.
Reading the first two books in this series will give you the big picture, but they are each able to stand alone without causing you to not enjoy the story.
I listened to the audio version, which was read by Jude Mason… she continues to be one of my all time favorite audio book readers.
I really loved The Noble Servant, and I think I’ll liken it to a chocolate-filled pastry. Something European-esque. 🙂 Just a delightful treat.
