Fee, the servant to the abusive Dunkel Hammer in the principality of Quellestadt, sacrifices her own happiness to protect her mistress, the young Besse, even as she has to forfend the punishment of her brother Peter, who has attempted to rob a merchant caravan. Dunkel has made life miserable for many people, including his wife, who hides in her tower home chamber, brushing her long, blonde hair to attract a lover who climbs to her from the outside, and a young, desperate boy who has sold his last cow for the equivalent of beans and claims to be his son. Meanwhile, the dauphin Charles scolds his friend Hans for seeking to save damsels in distress, among whom is Besse. Ultimately there is a fire and Charles must determine the guilty parties in the death that ensues, even as he helps save La Claire, daughter of the Duke of Burgundy, from her vain stepmother. Which of these, and others, will become legend enshrined in fairy tales?

The astonishing novel from the #1 New York Times bestselling author Jodi Picoult about a young boy with autism falsely accused of murder. When your son can’t look you in the eye...does that mean he’s guilty? Jacob Hunt is a teen with Asperger’s syndrome. He’s hopeless at reading social cues or expressing himself well to others, though he is brilliant in many ways. But he has a special focus on one subject—forensic analysis. A police scanner in his room clues him in to crime scenes, and he’s always showing up and telling the cops what to do. And he’s usually right. But when Jacob’s small hometown is rocked by a terrible murder, law enforcement comes to him. Jacob’s behaviors are hallmark Asperger’s, but they look a lot like guilt to the local police. Suddenly the Hunt family, who only want to fit in, are directly in the spotlight. For Jacob’s mother, Emma, it’s a brutal reminder of the intolerance and misunderstanding that always threaten her family. For his brother, Theo, it’s another indication why nothing is normal because of Jacob. And over this small family, the soul-searing question looms: Did Jacob commit murder?
