While Beauty Slept

By Elizabeth Canning Blackwell

Historical fiction at its best — The Brothers Grimm meets The Thirteenth Tale 

I am not the sort of person about whom stories are told.
 
And so begins Elise Dalriss’s story. When she hears her great-granddaughter recount a minstrel’s tale about a beautiful princess asleep in a tower, it pushes open a door to the past, a door Elise has long kept locked. For Elise was the companion to the real princess who slumbered—and she is the only one left who knows what actually happened so many years ago. Her story unveils a labyrinth where secrets connect to an inconceivable evil. As only Elise understands all too well, the truth is no fairy tale.
