Continuing in the rich area of retelling of fairy tales and key figures in them The Wild Girl from Kate Forsyth tells the dark, disturbing, sometimes harsh and emotional story of Dortchen Wild who fell into seemingly impossible love with Wilhelm Grimm at the time he was collecting and publishing the now famous collection of fairy tales.

Beautifully written, evocative and inordinately well researched The Wild Girl will appeal to fans Philippa Gregory and Hilary Mantel.
