While Beauty Slept - Elizabeth  Blackwell

Centered around a handmaiden to a royal family in a quasi medieval world the tale re-examines the Sleeping Beauty myth in a new and fresh way.  There are no epic battles with fierce dragons (although the character of Millicent was fairly creepifying) or magic fairies instead the author focuses on the "real" issues faced by a medieval citizenry,   disease, betrayal from social rivals and the struggles faced by an minor female handmaiden in a royal court.
