From the critics
SummaryAdd a Summary
I've looked at this book a few times and I really wasn't sure it was for me. Boy was I wrong! I loved it! An unpretentious modern-day fairy tale that will sweep you off your feet. It's sweet, funny and imaginative - all the important elements in a good fairy tale. It's a tricky thing to pull off successfully, to draw your reader in and have it feel believable but Rachel Hauck did the job.
Susanna isn't looking for a fairy tale romance, she just wants to marry the guy she's been dating for 12 years, or thinks she does. That ends abruptly, as he's "found the right ring but not the right girl." Ouch. Whatever can go wrong does go wrong and she finds herself working at her parent's Rib Shack restaurant wondering what to do with the rest of her life. She is a planner by nature, but decides to commit to nothing and let God determine her steps.
Prince Nathaniel is vacationing on St. Simon's Island under an assumed name, and unlike Susanna, thinks he knows exactly what's going to happen for the rest of his life. His father is ill and he'll be taking over the responsibilities of the king. His life has been laid out for him and it would be nice to have some freedom.
The theme throughout the story is finding your contentment in God, not your job, your relationships, not anything else but God. I not only loved the storyline, I loved the way it was told, the way the author strung her words together. I was pleasantly surprised and I will be reading other books by this author for sure.
I received this book from Netgalley and Zondervan for the purpose of an honest review. My opinion is my own. Thank you Zondervan!
