The Treasure is the Rose Though Ariane lives in poverty her castle is invaded by three strangers determined to find a treasure
I first read this as a kid and I loved it For years and years I looked for it, but could not remember the exact title It was a happy day when I picked it up at a church book sale and recognized my childhood friend.It is a short and simple story of Ariane, a Countess who lives a simple life tending the garden her late husband created for her Her castle is rundown and she is poor, but she s happy surrounded by the roses that remind her of her beloved husband Three vagabonds, led by the cruel Yarro [...]
I read this book ages and ages ago maybe when I was ten years old and something recently reminded me of it so I tried to find it again It s a perfect fairy tale and I enjoyed re reading it very much.
This was one of my favourite books when I was a child, and it holds up beautifully It s set loosely in medieval France, but it s an imagined one, I think there s no details, no pinning it down in time place A snow globe setting, where the focus is on what is important, and then everything starts to fade around the edges Thinking about it , it s a story about healing and redemption and finding a place in the world, so it s not a surprise I ve loved it for so long.
A simple, quietly haunting tale for the kind hearted.As a girl I loved this story of a gentle young widow beset upon by three wayward thieves, and I still do A tale of quiet bravery and redemption, it will resonate with young dreamers I can remember teaching myself to play the simple song at the end of the book on the recorder I still know the words and can play it to this day.
Another one that held up over time Technically a children s books but the characters are actually young adults A bandit approaches a lady s manor looking for treasure and the actual treasure he finds is unexpected Oh I love this book This is one of those books that put romantic notions in my head that outlaws can be reformed Only in books and movie and tv, my friends.
I m baffled, because I m almost certain that I had reviewed this previously, and yet I can t find the review here on GR Anyway, I liked the illustrations But the story seemed kind of meh A little too sweet in places.
I adored this book when I was younger, and I just picked it up to reread I love it just as much, if not , now than I did then It s written beautifully and it s very easy to get lost in the story It s a quick and very enjoyable read.
I loved this book so much when I was young It s thinner and sparser now than I remembered it, but then, it was a vivid window into the Middle Ages, and I adored it I still hold a fondness for it even now.
This reminded me of that awful book, The Giving Tree Ugh It was recommended by a Maudler but I was somewhat disappointed I still can t imagine it being someone s favorite book
It s a nice story, but I m not really sure I believe the ending The illustrations are nice, and the heroine displays a virtuous character.
