Beyond the Tower
The Journey series (Fairytales Retold)
Rapunzel grew up within the safety of the witch’s walls. She could hear children playing, people talking, boys teasing–but was forbidden to know anyone. When she grew older, the witch moved her far from her beloved walled-in garden and imprisoned her in a tower. Rapunzel remained there until she betrayed the witch and was banished to wander the “world of men.”
Now on her own, Rapunzel must find a way to discover a life beyond her tower, a world the witch warned her of. Bewildered by the rules polite people follow, she struggles knowing she doesn’t belong. Stumbling over other fairytale stories and the strange God people worship, can Rapunzel discover a way to make friends and stop roaming? When haunted by disturbing dreams, will she find a way to free herself of the witch’s hold?
