Melanie Dickerson’s series of fairy tales retold as historical romances for teens continues with The Merchant’s Daughter (Zondervan). In this reworking of Beauty and the Beast, Annabel Chapman was once a wealthy merchant’s daughter, but due to her father’s death and the actions of her mother and brothers, Annabel is now an indentured servant to the new lord, Ranulf de Wyse.

“This story is for teens and women who enjoy reading romance God’s way,” Melanie says, “and how God can help us conquer fear, guilt and betrayal.”
