Could anyone ever truly love . . . a beast . . .
Scarred inside and out, Aden Bontrager hides himself away from the world in his dark house... The community learned long ago not to disturb the beastly young man, the sole survivor of a tragedy that left the town reeling with loss and heartbreak.
Until one night, when a thunderstorm and a bicycle accident forces the community's new schoolteacher to knock at his door.
When she isn't teaching, Beth spends her time buried within the pages of a book. She and her father have moved many times in the years since her mother's death. He builds clocks and she teaches each community's scholars.
Something about the young man who grudgingly opens his home to her during a sudden downpour intrigues her. He hides himself away in dark and gloom, and somehow still manages to create breathtaking masterpieces out of simple blocks of wood.
Can she find the man within or will the beast succeed in pushing her away... for good?
This is a story about healing, love, and surviving unexpected tragedy.
Her Beastly Blessing is a plain retelling of the much beloved Beauty and the Beast.
