Her sisters want pearls and fine clothing, yet all Princess Brianna asks the King to bring her is a wreath of wildflowers. That way, he’ll remember not to stay away too long on his travels. But it’s late October before her father returns, and the only wildflowers he can find are those on the head of a human-voiced white wolf. One bargain later, the King has accidentally sold his youngest daughter to the wolf—and for Brianna, the adventure begins.
If you’d like to read the first chapter before deciding, it’s here.
The White Wolf is a novella based on a charming but little-known fairytale of the same name. I found this fairytale in Andrew Lang’s Grey Fairy Book, and had a great deal of enjoyment (with just enough challenges to keep things interesting) while working a short story up to a slim book. I’m quite pleased with the result, and I think you might enjoy it too!
