Rated 4.33/5 based on 3 reviews
“Once upon a time in a kingdom now disremembered, there lived a peasant girl by the name of Jonagold. Her hair was the colour of ginger, her skin dotted with freckles, her face round and comely.” Jonagold may sound like your typical fairy tale maiden—but her outer beauty hides an inner darkness.

Review by: James Jenkins on April 09, 2014 :
3.5 stars

The words and story flow nicely, but the ending felt very out of character for the person of Jonagold.

But the writing was nice enough that I will be giving another work by the author a look.

Jonagold (16) went with her father Freeman Sturmer & adopted brother Pippin to the market. He was going to buy her a new dress, for the possibility of marriage. Jonagold came up missing. Lady Lenora, Baroness of the Cantashire Wolds was also missing.
Cool book cover, great font & writing style. A very well written mysterious short story (book). It was very easy to read/follow from start/finish & never a dull moment. No grammar errors, repetitive or out of line sequence sentences. Lots of exciting scenarios & a great set of unique characters. This could make a great mystery movie or mini TV series. You must read it to the end. No doubt in my mind a very easy rating of 5 stars for this short story (book).
Thank you for the free short story (book)

Review by: David H. Keith on March 10, 2014 :
A well-told parable. Although the moral of the tale is a bit predictable, the telling of it still captures the reader's attention and leaves himer with a sense of satisfaction - it ended as it had to. St. Clair has done a fine job with this. I recommend it without hesitation.
