Lariette | 3 comments I believe the cover is a dark painting of a girl (woman) on horseback running away from something and there are foliage and nature in the background (I'm sorry I can't remember much of the story). I read this book probably 5+ years ago. I think she has to go through a trial to get the lover back but I might be mixing that up with the Norwegian fairytale of "East of the sun, West of the moon" and it is NOT that story. There is no polar bear. Thank you for your help!!!!f

Lariette | 3 comments Sorry i vaguely remember the story. The sisters might've been 16-24. There might have been magic because the "main" sister or character had to protect her lover from a magical being

Lariette | 3 comments The book is "An Earthly Knight" by Janet McNaughton https://www.amazon.com/Earthly-Knight...
I stumbled on this when I was reading "Keturah and Lord Death" by Martine Leavitt!! It's a very good fairytale story and I knew it reminded me somewhat of the book I was looking for so I was looking through the related books on Goodreads and there it was!! So unbelievably happy!!!
