Wisteria By wisteriaflower Completed

Cast out of the tower where she's been locked up her whole life, Ivy is suddenly all alone in the desert with nothing to call her own, not even her name. Starvation seems inevitable until Leon, a chivalrous merchant comes along to bring her to a city she's never heard of before. From there, life could be perfect were Ivy not still caught up on the secret love affair she harbored in her tower, the one thing that seemed to keep her going, through days of misery. 

And so begins a whirlwind of adventures. In her quest to find her love, Ivy encounters a family of dwarfs, a beached mermaid, a small town fairy, and all manner of things she could never have dreamed of. Most importantly, she begins to discover who she truly is and what is really means to love.

I'm not a fan of retellings, but you have some amazing descriptions here. The descriptive and sensory writing helped me feel what the character was feeling. I do wish we got a bit more backstory, though.

A very descriptive and imaginative piece of writing. It lures the reader in and wraps you around its mystery. Love your writing style!

LOL, the poor girl! She's really not having a good day, is she?
                              Had to read this, I absolutely love fairy tales and this seems to be an interesting take. Can't wait for more--I've added it to my reading list so I don't lose track of it!
