A wonderful retelling of the classic Snow White, with a few twists... overall I enjoyed it and had a hard time putting it down.

A lot of times it was annoying and boring, overall super predictable, repetitive, and too similar to the previous books in the series (The Healer's Apprentice and The Merchant's Daughter). I am going to read the rest of the series in hope that they get better and more original. I wanted to like this book, but, if I'm honest, I didn't.

Awesome book! I just love Gabe and Sophie: They are both so sweet and caring!

This is a classic retelling of Snow White. A young lord decides to rescue the lost daughter of a lord who is betrothed to his brother. This includes all of the twists and turns that come with knights in shining armor, forbidden love, and a dangerously jealous stepmother.

I am generally a fan of Melanie Dickerson's books, but this one - NOT!
Had I known it was a lifted re-telling of Snow White, I wouldn't have bothered. Knowing the fairy tale classic, you pretty much know how everything is going to go, and it really had a much simpler depth of characters than the classic.
Not a great read in my opinion. But, because the author was able to keep me reading through it, I gave it more than 1 star.

Really enjoyable book! Enough twists so that you weren't sure what would happen every minute and I enjoyed reading the romance between the two characters and wondering how they'd work through the novels problems! Highly recommended for anyone who is looking for a little more plot in a fairytale!

Melanie Dickerson is my favorite author for sure. This book: The Fairest beauty is very loosely based on Snow white. A nice story from the Hagenheim series. It is written in a way that focuses on both Sophie and Gabe's viewpoint. Very interesting to read. I would definitely recommend this book to all.

Gabe was so sweet. It made me cry. Her books that I've previously read has made me cry. I would recommend this book, and the Golden braid to anyone. Two thumbs up here!

As the title gives away right there, this is an intricately written spinoff of the Snow White fairytale. Out of all Melanie Dickerson's works involving medieval princesses and women, this may be one of my favourites, along with The Captive Maiden. Does anyone else find the dresses on the covers very nicely designed? I sure do. I would recommend those who enjoy fairytale spinoffs to read this book, as there is the perfect mix of the author's own ideas combined with the original story. Even lacking the element of magic, the author's use of the character's faith in God helps make the stories appear a more realistic situation. This was a great book, and it was very interesting to read!  5/5 - @Siri of the Teen Review Board at the Hamilton Public Library
