“The Oak: A Grown Up Fairy Tale” by S.L. Dearing - IHIBRP 5-Star Book Review

A Charming & Vibrant Adult Fairytale!

A charming and vibrant fairytale worthy of being made into a Disney film awaits readers in S.L. Dearing’s Fantasy/Romance, “The Oak”. But, this is no children’s bedtime tale. Kethia is a young French-woman who is not only irresistibly beautiful but gifted in the ways of a true healer. A multitude of love-struck men—from aristocrat to pauper, from youthful to elderly, and from tame to wild—vie for her affections, but it is a stranger who suddenly captures Keithia’s attention when she stumbles upon the handsome and mysterious victim of a severe gunshot wound while returning to her cottage on the outskirts of the forest.

Dearing imbues her tale with natural elements and the gift of healing as her heroine practices her ample skills, tending to various villagers and intimately caring for the stranger’s mortal wound. As Kethia and the stranger’s bond grows, the author makes certain that the backstory provided is more than sufficient to create doubt in the reader’s mind as to whether or not her heroine and her true love will enjoy a “happily-ever-after” ending, for even as the war for Keithia’s hand amps up, her leading men are drawn together in a crucial battle that will determine the final champion. Will it be the one Kethia truly loves?

Note: This book does contain sexual situations and is, therefore, recommended for ages 17 and up.
