This book is about a princess who is sent by her mother to a far away land to marry the kingdom's prince with her servants who will lead her. On their journey, her disloyal servants make a plan to have her killed so her maid would be the one marrying the prince. She somehow escapes and goes through horrible experiences trying to be safe and get to the castle. However, she discovers her unnatural powers that help her through the voyage. She also makes new friends and gets her title as the "goose girl". Shannon Hale is an extraordinary writer so if you prefer a fictional adventure full of suspense, this book is perfect for you. I really had a wonderful time reading this book and am now a fan of Shannon Hale.
