Giveaway: The Healer's Apprentice

The Healer's Apprentice
by Melanie Dickerson

Retelling: Sleeping Beauty

Description from the amazon:
Two Hearts.

One Hope.

Rose has been appointed as a healer's apprentice at Hagenheim Castle, a rare opportunity for a woodcutter's daughter like her. While she often feels uneasy at the sight of blood, Rose is determined to prove herself capable.

Failure will mean returning home to marry the aging bachelor her mother has chosen for her---a bloated, disgusting merchant who makes Rose feel ill.

When Lord Hamlin, the future duke, is injured, it is Rose who must tend to him. As she works to heal his wound, she begins to understand emotions she's never felt before and wonders if he feels the same.

But falling in love is forbidden, as Lord Hamlin is betrothed to a mysterious young woman in hiding. As Rose's life spins toward confusion, she must take the first steps on a journey to discover her own destiny.

  10. The most interesting room was the Healer's chamber. I've always found healing with herbs and natural remedies quite fascinating.

    I definitely loved all rooms, but I must stay true to myself and choose Chapel. To see her distressed and left not knowing why, leaves me bewildered and intrigued.

    I really liked all of the rooms, but I think I am going to say that my favorite was the Chapel. I just thought it was a little more intriguing than the others.

  16. I chose to visit the Chapel.

    I was a bit taken aback by the excerpt.

    It sounded a bit too Mills & Boon for my taste though.

  23. I would say the healer's chamber is my choice because here is where the healing process starts along with Marcus staring at Sabine.

  24. I was going to say Healers Chamber right from the start, but then I started reading the Chapel, and I have to go with that. I’m insanely intrigued as to why Katheryn was in tears, and why she responds to being called ‘darling’ with a, “You dare call me that?” I wonder what had happened between the two, if anything at all, and I’m also curious about the story (side story?) of her son and the woodcutter’s daughter.
