Summary
"Dortchen Wild fell in love with Wilhelm Grimm the first time she saw him. In the small German kingdom of Hessen-Cassel in the early nineteenth century Dortchen lives next door to the young and handsome fairy-tale scholar Wilhelm Grimm. It is a time of tyranny and terror. Napoleon Bonaparte wants to conquer all of Europe, and Hesse-Cassel is one of the first kingdoms to fall. Forced to live under oppressive French rule, Wilhelm and his brothers quietly rebel by preserving old half-forgotten tales that had once been told by the firesides of houses grand and small over the land. As Dortchen tells Wilhelm some of the most powerful and compelling stories in what will one day become his and Jacob's famous fairy-tale collection, their love blossoms. But Dortchen's father will not give his consent for them to marry and war, death, and poverty conspire to keep the lovers apart. Yet Dortchen is determined to find a way"--Page 2 of dust jacket
