This was a wonderful story!!! I found this book on the YALSA 2002 Best Books for Young Adults list, and it was a great find!

Summers at Castle Auburn is the story of Coriel, illegitimate child of nobility, who visits her legitimate sister, both of the House of Halsing, every summer at Castle Auburn. What Coriel learns over these summers is that marriage to her and to her sister is a valuable commodity. Her sister is to marry Prince Bryan, who is to become king, as the royalty always marries into their house, the House of Halsing. This story includes all essential elements of good fantasy; a witch's apprentice, a playboy prince, fairies, a beautiful sister, handsome men from all levels of society, and best of all for me, a smart, strong-willed heroine.

Highly recommended!!!
