**A Blue Beard retelling** Based on Charles Perrault's fairytale, this YA Historical Fantasy short story set in Victorian England mixes romance, magic and mystery.

After agreeing to an arranged marriage to escape her greedy relatives, 18-year-old heiress Amelia moves into her husband's manor determined to start a new life. But the gothic mansion's forbidding surroundings, the servants' strange demeanour and her husband's mysterious past soon awaken her suspicions. If Amelia truly wants to become the lady of the house, she'll have to discover what secrets lie beyond closed doors and unravel the mystery of the old house's forbidden room. But sometimes secrets are kept for a good reason...

Most Bluebeard characters are more dominant than this. Interested to see where you're going with him.
hey do u mind giving recommendations on my book because your one seems awesome
First time I'm reading something related to blue beard. It's gonna be good.
Cathedral, you said, not merely a church. This is a gothic tale and your ingenue is literally walking into a cathedral, so you should show us more of this setting than its "high ceilings".
