Summary

Fairy tales reborn! Inside this enchanting collection you'll find stories that are not-quite familiar. An assassin with a midnight deadline; a shoe store owned by Princeton Charming; a sleeping, ever-so-enchanted beast; an enchanted mirror (how do you define "fairest" anyway?). These are stories you've read a hundred times — but never quite like this.  
Written over a year, Upon a Time is more than just traditional tales. Each story marks a special day: Valentine's Day, Halloween, Easter Sunday and more. In the tales in Upon a Time, history mingles with fiction and myth becomes real. 
Upon a Time — stories of fantasy and romance, mixed with just a hint of magic.  
"‘Excellent,’ she says cheerfully and brings her wand down with a thwack!  Stars leap from its tip, out into the night, reaching over the ramparts and into the castle, earthing in the special glass of the slippers, that promptly... 
Explode! 
These are very well designed shoes. Not comfortable, but oh, so beautifully engineered."

    ~~~~~ Excerpt ~~~~~
    Tentatively, I stepped up onto the footholds, wincing at how cold they were. They were far apart, too…forcing me to spread my legs for him.
     
    "Lean forward."
     
    He was in front of the frame, using a key to unclasp the metal rings that were about a foot ahead of me. Yikes. I reached forward, slipping my thin wrists through the rings, feeling helpless once they were closed around them. I couldn't move, even if I wanted to. The footholds kept me from falling with the leather straps that were attached to them, but I knew that if I tried to get out, I would come toppling over.
     
    So I opted to stand still, watching Mr. Davis nervously, until he disappeared from view and came up from behind me.
     
    "You're so wet, Sophia…"
     
    "I know…"
     
    "It's all for me, isn't it?"
     
    "Yes, master."
     
    "Beg for it."
     
    My stomach jumped nervously as I realized what he was asking me to beg for. I'd have to say it if I hoped to be satisfied. God, I'd never felt so powerless in my entire life! But a girl's gotta do what a girl's gotta do…I decided that for now, I'd toss my dignity to the side and just tell Mr. Davis exactly what I wanted.
     
    "Please, master…please…I need you, I need you inside me…" I whimpered, thighs quivering with desire.

    New York Times Bestseller: A small-town doctor acquitted of murdering his pregnant wife faces new accusations in this classic set in the early days of modern medicine. Hambledon, Pennsylvania, is still reeling from the sensational murder trial that shattered the peace of the bucolic hamlet less than a year ago. Dr. Jonathan Ferrier was accused of killing his beautiful young wife after she died following a botched abortion. The scion of a powerful old eastern family, Jonathan hired the best attorneys money could buy. When he was acquitted, many believed he had bought his freedom. Now, he has returned home to sell his practice and move on. But haunted by his wife’s death, Jonathan still strives to heal the judgmental people of his divided town.   Robert Morgan, a young, idealistic doctor, is determined to make up his own mind about the accused’s innocence or guilt. Of one thing he is certain: Jonathan is a good doctor, perhaps even a great one. He is also a man who feels abandoned by God, his church, his family, and his friends. As Jonathan continues to be pilloried by the town, a new series of accusations are leveled at him. Is he a cold-blooded killer who murdered his wife and their unborn child? Or a man unjustly accused and wrongly maligned?  Testimony of Two Men explores the evolution of modern medicine and the tireless physicians who are its unsung heroes. Author Taylor Caldwell’s bestselling novel touches on faith, religion, and the then-new field of mental health as it tells a mesmerizing tale of desire, betrayal, and love that can destroy or redeem.
