Two Hearts. One Hope. Rose has been appointed as a healer's apprentice at Hagenheim Castle, a rare opportunity for a woodcutter's daughter like her. While she often feels uneasy at the sight of blood, Rose is determined to prove herself capable. Failure will mean returning home to marry the aging bachelor her mother has chosen for her---a bloated, disgusting merchant who makes Rose feel ill. When Lord Hamlin, the future duke, is injured, it is Rose who must tend to him. As she works to heal his wound, she begins to understand emotions she's never felt before and wonders if he feels the same. But falling in love is forbidden, as Lord Hamlin is betrothed to a mysterious young woman in hiding. As Rose's life spins toward confusion, she must take the first steps on a journey to discover her own destiny.

Setting this aside for now. It's too slow moving. I can't seem to get into it.I may pick it back up again later.
First, let's get the required out of the way, I won this book through the Goodreads First Reads program. But even though they gave me a free book, it wouldn't influence my review one way or the other!I really liked this book, from the first page to the last. I was a bit apprehensive at first becau...
