Michael and the Ice Princess: A Mystical Romance by Mary Mendenhall

Book Description: A lyrical novel with a fairy-tale plot, this fresh presentation of the enduring quest story is a fascinating literary introduction to Western mystical thought. “Drawing on rich and eclectic sources, Mary Mendenhall has produced a memorable tapestry of great power and beauty,” a London reviewer wrote about the first edition.

An unpaid debt. A cursed king. The chilling reminder, “There is a power greater than yours,” when his wife dies in childbirth, his daughter is lost, and his kingdom crumbles.

Sensing that all is not right, the forgotten princess embarks on a journey of self-discovery alone, misunderstood and confused, wandering in search of home… So begins the story of Michael, a medieval craftsman craving fulfillment who stumbles across a cold and aloof stranger. But the Ice Princess is not like the fairy-tale figures of the Snow Queen, North Wind, or the White Witch: she is a flesh-and-blood woman with a quest of her own.

Reminiscent of the storytelling styles of Elizabeth Goudge and George MacDonald, Michael and the Ice Princess: A Mystical Romance offers an ideal ‘bedtime story’ in the old oral tradition. Suitable for older youth and anyone who craves spirituality linked with old-fashioned romance, this classic novella is an enchanting journey through the world of sages of long ago who still have something to say to modern souls.
