Those few of you who actually look at my reviews already know that I love re-told fairy tales, and this one is no exception. It is based on a Grimm Brothers tale, the Goose Girl (surprise!), and is told with a lot of detail. The main character Ani is a princess who is sent to marry the prince of a neighboring kingdom. Unbeknownst to her, her lady-in-waiting has planned to take her place and marry the prince herself. Ani manages to escape the ambush of her trusted retainers, and has to reinvent herself as a citizen of the foreign kingdom. This fairy tale world has the usual roster of evil and ill-meaning citizens, a handsome and kind prince, and loyal non-human friends, including the geese of the title.
