Waiting On Wednesday: The Orphan's Wish

June 20, 2018

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly feature to spotlight an up and coming release you are most excited about. 

This week, I'm waiting on an author who has been able to bring Fairy Tales to a fun new, and realistic level. I've been a fan or her retellings for several years now. She has touched on Snow White, Cinderella, Beauty and the Beast. Now she is coming out with a book based around Aladdin! To say I'm excited would be an understatement!

The Orphan's Wish is a YA book that just sounds like it will be a lot of fun. The cover is gorgeous and fits with the rest of the books in this medieval world. I can't wait to see what the book will bring.

About the Book:
From the streets to an orphanage in a faraway kingdom, Aladdin has grown up alone. Until he meets Kirstyn. With a father who is the duke of Hagenheim and a mother who is the patroness of the orphanage where Aladdin lives, Kirstyn is a member of the most powerful family in the land . . . and way out of his league. Despite the difference in their stations, Aladdin quickly becomes Kirstyn’s favorite companion for taking walks in the forest, and their childhood friendship grows along with them.

Through his scrappy skills, intelligence, and hard work, Aladdin earns a position serving in the duke’s house. But he knows it isn’t enough to grant him his one desire: Kirstyn’s hand in marriage. If he hopes to change his station in life and feel worthy of marrying Kirstyn, he must leave Hagenheim to seek his fortune.

But once Aladdin leaves, no one is around to protect Kirstyn, and the greedy men desperate to take advantage of her father’s wealth take notice. Now, more than Aladdin’s background stands in the way of the future he’s worked so hard to obtain. His only hope is to rescue Kirstyn and somehow manage to win her hand as well.
