Overview

When young Merryrose sets out on an ordinary day across the River of Gold, events cause her to make a choice. Her unselfish act to save the life of the grumbly, grumpy, grouchy old man attracts the attention of the magical creatures of Casimiria, the Land of Wishes. When they place the golden key in her hands, unusual but important changes begin. All the while, the cunning forces of darkness conspire to threaten the Merryrose's good wishes. With graceful storytelling charm and the exquisite line drawings, On theWings of the Swan is an enchanting fairy tale that shows how the loveliness of a generous heart can make the world a better place.
