In the years since the fever that took both her family and her ability to walk, sixteen-year-old Bronwyn has been relegated to the lonely status of cripple. But when a fortuitous encounter with a mysterious mountain witch reveals the magical possibility of regaining the use of her legs, Bronwyn can’t help but envision the life she never had.
Powerless to resist the promise of a second chance, Bronwyn agrees to the witch’s terms. Clad in a pair of enchanted but homely shoes, her journey takes her from her small village in the countryside to the glittering court of the king and from a lonely life of solitude into the lives and hearts of two very different young men.
But as the Faerie-witch’s magic begins to unravel, the power of true love is tested; can Bronwyn’s dream of being happy, whole, and accepted ever be attained?
