Welcome to the Favorites Giveaway Hop, hosted by StuckInBooks!  This hop features bloggers discussing their favorite books and giving them away to you!  Check out the entire list at the end of this post.

Last fall, I had the opportunity to read and review The Golden Braid by Melanie Dickerson.  I really enjoyed this interpretation of the Rapunzel fairy tale so I’m passing along the book to one of you!

The one who needs rescuing isn’t always the one in the tower…

Rapunzel can throw a knife better than any man. She paints beautiful flowering vines on the walls of her plaster houses. She sings so sweetly she can coax even a beast to sleep. But there are two things she is afraid her mother might never allow her to do: learn to read and marry.

Fiercely devoted to Rapunzel, her mother is suspicious of every man who so much as looks at her daughter and warns her that no man can be trusted. After a young village farmer asks for Rapunzel’s hand in marriage, Mother decides to move them once again—this time, to the large city of Hagenheim.

The journey proves treacherous, and after being rescued by a knight—Sir Gerek—Rapunzel, in turn, rescues him farther down the road. As a result, Sir Gerek agrees to repay his debt to Rapunzel by teaching her to read. Could there be more to him than his arrogance and desire to marry for riches and position?

As Rapunzel acclimates to life in a new city, she uncovers a mystery that will forever change her life. In this Rapunzel story unlike any other, a world of secrets and treachery are about to be revealed after seventeen years. How will Rapunzel finally take control of her own destiny? And who will prove faithful to a lowly peasant girl with no one to turn to?

This is a used hardcover copy of the book.  However, it is in like new condition, but has been in a home that also has cats.  This giveaway is open to US residents ages 18 and older.  Giveaway ends Friday, 2/19/16, at 11:59pm EST.  To enter, just use the widget below.  After you enter, keep scrolling down to find the complete list of participating bloggers.  Good luck!
