Frederick, a peasant farmer's son who dreams of earning a living using his God-given talent as a woodcarver, falls in love with Adela, a duke's daughter who yearns to prove herself as an artist. Includes discussion questions.

Adela, youngest daughter of Duke Wilhelm of Hagenheim, is never allowed outside of the castle walls. She sneaks away one day to the market disguised as a peasant, and meets a poor farmer with a kind heart. Frederick earns the income for his family and defends his mother from his father's drunken rages. He carves figures, animals, and scenes into wood, and he's asked to carve these scenes into cathedral doors when his talent is noticed. When he gets swept up into a plan to kidnap the duke's daughter, both are shaken by what they learn about the other-- and by the villainous plans that keep them apart. -- adapted from jacket
