Not your average faerie tale. A girl fleeing abuse at home finds love from an unexpected source within the fairy woods that surround her home.
I believe this story is a stand alone story and although told in verse, should not be part of an anthology as suggested for poetry submissions. So I uploaded the story three times in order to fullfill the 10,000 word minimum requirement. My apologies.
the reviews are in...
Well written, rich, detailed, resonant, emotionally spot-on writing . . . You have an exquisite touch with the ability to put your character(s) empathically on the page. And that too in verse. Well done.... One of the few pieces here that brought tears to my eyes. – Jenny W.
From sad to bright, what a poignant poem. Unicorns, centaurs, ogres, naiads and dryads, make this mournful tail dazzle. It’s a fairy tale with a taste of heaven. Beautifully written. – CMTS
I am not a lover of verse... however I found this hauntingly beautiful. ...with language which really does sing beautifully from the page. – Annabelle X
A touching story. A sympathetic main character. Vivid imagery. Good world building. Good tension. Good pacing. – Al C.
I am speechless! ...absolutely incredible! This has to be read to be believed! – James R.
