When a fourteenth-century maiden named Odel loses her father, she learns from her aunt that she must marry—and that a handful of fairy dust can separate men from mice. Having sworn off love, Odel is reluctant to greet her many suitors, until one catches her eye. Kind and generous, Michelle shows Odel how good it can feel to fall in love—too bad Odel can't trust her heart. Will Michelle destroy what little hope Odel had for men, or will they be able to keep their love aflame? A classic novella from New York Times bestselling author Lynsay Sands.
