Once Upon a Time…
In the kingdom of Tranen, a king makes a promise to his dying wife that he'll only remarry a woman who possesses her golden hair. In time, the king's eyes are turned by his daughter. Realizing her father’s intentions, Princess Aurelia tries to trick him by requesting impossible gifts: dresses created by the sun, moon and stars, and a coat made of a thousand furs. But when he is successful, Aurelia sacrifices her privileged life and flees her kingdom, disguised by the cloak and a new name, Allerleirauh.
She enters the safe haven of Saarland der Licht, where the handsome and gentle Prince Klaus takes her under his care. Hoping not to be discovered by her father’s courtiers, Allerleirauh tries to remain hidden under her new identity when she finds unexpected love with Prince Klaus, even though his arranged marriage to the princess of a neighboring kingdom approaches. Risking everything, Allerleirauh must face her troubled past and her fears of the future along her journey to self-acceptance in this triumphant retelling of the classic Grimm Fairy Tale.

"It has been a while since I have read a YAlit that grab at my soul and didn't let go until the final words of the story. Chantal has done a beautiful job of doing just that. She tells a story so that you are living as the main character while reading."

"Allerleirauh is no exception. This is a retelling of a Grimm Brother's fairy tale that I actually have not heard of or read. Because of that I can't really compare if one is better or if this does the original justice. From an outside view I can tell you that this book was beautiful and in my opinion very well done."
