Andrea Cefaloabout this book: The Fairytale Keeper: Avenging the Queen is a medieval tale of corruption, devotion, and the origins of Grimm's fairy tales.
Set in 13th century Cologne during the worst outbreak of fever since the sixth century scourge, the people scramble to obtain Last Rites and Funerals for their dying loved ones. Adelaide and her father are no different. When Adelaide's mother, a story-teller who affectionately called her daughter Snow White, falls victim to the great sickness, her father bribes the parish priest to perform a Christian funeral. But when Father Soren commits an unforgivable atrocity, he pushes Adelaide and the rest of his parish to revolt his cruelty and corruption. Should Adelaide continue to seek the justice her mother deserves, even if it costs her everything she has left: her father, her friends, her first love, and maybe even her life?
