Book Details
Author: Annette K. Larsen
Release Date: August 2013
Publisher: Hidden Falls Publishing
Genre: Medieval Romance


I LOVE how the author wrote in the back of the book:
My books are about women who face hard choices, who face pain and rejection and often have to face the reality of sacrificing what they want for what is right. The consequences are often difficult or unpleasant, but in the end, doing what's right will always be worth it.

And this book is just that! A woman who had to make hard choices, but in the end, it was so worth it!

Princess Ariella needs passion...needs direction...needs something more than just sitting around the palace all day.

One day, while exploring the garden maze, she comes across the gardener....Gavin.

As their friendship grows Ariella has to face some really hard decisions.

She finds her royalty a hardship to bear and tries to flee it by being with the people in the village.

But this gets her into more than one frightening situation...and Gavin is always there to help her.

That is until the King banishes Gavin from the palace grounds.

The story that unfold is so amazingly good!

About the Author
I was born in Utah, but grew up in Flagstaff Arizona and St. Louis Missouri, the fifth of seven children. I attended college at Southern Virginia University and Brigham Young University where I studied English and Theater. I now live in Idaho with my husband and four children.

I have Charlotte Bronte to thank for the courage to write novels. After being bombarded with assigned reading about women who justified abandoning either their families or their principles in the name of love, I had the great fortune of reading Jane Eyre. And that was it: finally a heroine who understood that being moral and making the right choice was hard, and sometimes it hurt, but it was still worth it. After rereading it several years later, I realized that if I wanted more books to exist with the kinds of heroines I admired, then I might as well write a few myself.

I believe there is no substitute for good writing or good chocolate. Fortunately, one often leads to the other.
