Santa Barbara : ABC-Clio, 1988.

was the king's daughter, but not a true princess. Rumor had it that her
mother, a foreigner, was a witch, and had charmed the king into marriage.
The daughter, then, was suspect. When she discovers an old track telling
of the ingredients that go into making an ointment that is effective against
dragon burns, her trips to the herb sellers reinforce the townspeople's
suspicion that she's not ordinary, but she can't even get her gifts together.
Other royalty can mend broken plates and turn dust into roses. Not Aerin.
But then, as she reaches maturity, her real gift of visions help her go
on a quest for the crown, which has been missing for a long time. She earns
her rightful place in the Kingdom as she returns with the surprise, even
to her Prince Charming.
