Sweet story about a young man who has a dream about rescuing a young woman from the King of the fairies.But when Padraig discovers that Rosamunde is not dead, he will brave the faerie realm to rescue her and maybe win another chance to share his heart - This story had a very classic feel, alternating a stanza of the ballad with the real story of Padraig and Rosamunde, but I really just do not care for this style and the back and forth (and hated italics) broke up the flow of the story too much for me to enjoy the tale (2.5 stars - I didn't care for it)3.

A young girl witnesses the death of her parents by dogs, then years later go on a search for a valuable cup that was stolen at same time.
