ABBEY'S BOOKSELLER PICK ----- If you're a fan of true love, adventure, pirates, princesses, giants, fencing, captures, escapes, miracles and rodents of unusual size then this is the perfect book for you.  Mary O'Sullivan


Beautiful, flaxen-haired Buttercup has fallen for Westley, the farm boy, and when he departs to make his fortune, she vows never to love another. So, when she hears that his ship has been captured by the Dread Pirate Roberts (no survivors) her heart is broken. But her charms draw the attention of the relentless Prince Humperdinck who wants a wife and will go to any lengths to have Buttercup. So starts a fairy tale like no other, of fencing, poison, true love, hate, revenge, giants, bad men, good men, snakes, spiders, chases, escapes, lies, truths, passion and miracles, and a damn fine story.
