Molly Bell is an eleven-year old girl who used to be a whimsical, sporty type of a child with a zest for living. All that has been turned upside down by the untimely death of her cherished mother two years ago. To make matters worse, her father is getting remarried to a high-maintenance beauty that Molly seemingly has nothing in common with, and she comes with an annoying six-year old son, Henry, who finds a way to wreck everything in his path.

Molly can’t find anything about her new circumstances to be excited about, until her Aunt Joan tells her about the wishing well at Molly’s grandparents’ farm. According to Aunt Joan, every wish she ever made there came true. And it just so happens that Molly and Henry will be staying at the farm for a week while their parents are on their honeymoon. Molly is convinced if she could just find that wishing well, she could wish for her mom to come back to life and everything will be okay again.

But Molly is in for a few surprises, and more that a few hard lessons about being careful what you wish for when the consequences of Molly’s selfish desires wreak havoc on her entire family. Can Molly make things right again through the wishing well? Or will she need to find it within herself to bring back the joy in her life that has been missing all this time?

A Princess in servitude.

Rose Red, the younger sister of Snow White, lives with her stepmother the evil Queen. She works, cooks and cleans night and day without reward, but the evil Queen has a beautiful throne Rose Red greatly admires and on which longs to sit—if only for a moment—but is forbidden to do so.

The evil Queen also has a longing for majestic objects, including a beautiful royal red robe, which can only be stitched from Rose Red’s heartstrings and dyed by the girl’s young rich blood at midnight on the night of the Blood-Moon after Rose Red has been poisoned by the thorn of the cursed rose.

Rose Red escapes only to find seven curious elves living in a life-sized dollhouse. To her surprise and delight she finds out the elves, as slaves once themselves to the Queen, were the tiny craftsmen that constructed the throne.

As young Rose Red and the seven elves run for their lives through the Dark Forest, she asks the elves to build her a similar throne. The elves gladly oblige, but instead build for her three other gifts that might just save her life. Will that be enough, or will the evil Queen’s lust for greed be Rose Red’s downfall?
