The Amaranth Enchantment by Julie Berry

When Lucinda Chapdelaine was a small child, her parents left for the royal ball and never returned. Ever since, Lucinda has been stuck in perpetual servitude at her evil aunt’s jewelry store.

Then, on the very same day, a mysterious visitor and an even more bizarre piece of jewelry both enter the shop, setting in motion a string of twists and turns that will forever alter Lucinda’s path.

In this magical story filled with delightful surprises, Lucinda will dance at the royal ball, fall under the Amaranth Witch’s spell, avenge her parents’ death, and maybe — just maybe — capture the heart of a prince.

The Amaranth Enchantment by Julie Berry is a story perfect for those who love fairy tales. This books has been on my to read list for quite a while. I noticed it was available to listen on audio from NetLibrary so I downloaded it. Glad I did because it was a very entertaining, fun book to listen to. It’s full of all the stuff you find in a typical fairytale but also contains lots of original material.

Content: A clean read. My 10 year old overheard part of the book and wants to listen to it now. Although classified as Young Adult I’m letting her listen to it because there is nothing objectionable.
