Once there was a tiny kingdom called Tschlin. The people of this beautiful kingdom were happy, but its king and queen were not. Although they loved their three daughters, the law required that the heir to the throne be a man. The good king and queen simply didn’t know what to do – until one day, when an unlikely solution appeared at their door.
A story of virtue in a world that glamorizes vice, The Apple Trees of Tschlin is a beautiful tale of three young princesses, the choices they face, and the happiness that awaits the one who chooses the right.
