Teaser Tuesday – THE WILD GIRL by Kate Forsyth

I am currently reading a gorgeous chunky novel, The Wild Girl by Kate Forsyth, historical fiction imagining the life of Dortchen Wild, the girl who lived next door to the young Brothers Grimm, fairytale scholars in early 1800s Germany.

The Wild Girl by Kate Forsyth

Aussie author Kate Forsyth’s previous title, Bitter Greens, featured in My Best Books of 2012 list.

My teaser:

Wilhelm always had a smile and a kind word for Dortchen, but this only made her heart ache more. She longed to be near him, but his presence made her hot-cheeked and tongue-tied, so that she felt she was always making a fool of herself. (Page 67)

Kate Forsyth’s prose conveys passion with ease and elegance.
