Young Rosemarie finds herself drawn to Thomas, the son of the nearby baron. But just as her feelings begin to grow, a man carrying the Plague interrupts their hunting party. While in forced isolation, Rosemarie begins to contemplate her future—could it include Thomas? Could he be the perfect man to one day rule beside her and oversee her parents’ lands?
Then Rosemarie is summoned back to her castle in haste. The disease has spread, and her family is threatened. And the secret she discovers when she returns could change her future forever.
This novella is a prequel to Jody Hedlund’s An Uncertain Choice.
What a great prequel. I love getting the back story to the main character in a book. This one takes place several years before An Uncertain Choice. It shows the type of person Rosemarie is and her relationship with her parents. It gives you a look at the time period the book is set in. You easily learn to love Rosemarie and want to know the rest of her story. I recommend reading this before you start An Uncertain Choice just to give yourself a bit more background information as you begin the book. Great for preteens and teens, plus anyone older than that.
