But isn’t that what courage to step into your calling is all about? Discovering the truth and doing everything in your power to obtain it? To live it?
You know, I think it’s safe to say you’re never too old for fairy tales. Who wants to live in a world where that isn’t the case? One of my favorite cartoons to this day in Cinderella. “Cinderellle…Cinderelle, night and day for Cinderelle!” And Gus Gus? I want a chunky mouse that wears a pointy hat. Although, I can just get one for my cat (he isn’t known for being “fit”) and it’ll work out fine. 🙂
Back to fairy tales – there’s just something about them I can’t help but love. And Rachel Hauck is the one to go to if you’re looking for some modern day fairy tales. Princess Ever After was one of those books that kept me up past midnight and it was all worth it. Sleep, schmeep. I’ve got books to read Universe.
Regina Beswick was born to be a princess. But she’s content to be a small-town girl, running a classic auto restoration shop, unaware a secret destiny awaits her. One that will leap from the pages of her grandmother’s hand-painted book of fairytales. Tanner Burkhardt is the stoic Minister of Culture for the Grand Duchy of Hessenberg. When he is tasked to retrieve the long-lost princess, he must overcome his fear of failure in order to secure his nation’s future—and his own. Yet lurking in the political shadows is a fierce opponent with sinister plans to abolish the throne forever. Overwhelmed with opposition, Regina must decide if she’s destined to restore old cars or an ancient nation. Together—with a little divine intervention—Regina and Tanner discover the truth of her heritage and the healing power of true love.
Not only is this book well-written, heart-warming and a fun read, Hauck brings to light important life lessons of who we are and what it means to have faith in a bigger/greater plan than what we might think is best. Trust me, thinking back when I was 19 or 20 and what I thought I wanted and planned for? Once again, let’s thank.the.Lord He didn’t listen to me and stuck with His plan ;). I’m so thankful the Lord likes to mix things up to show us a much more adventurous and beautiful story.
It isn’t always easy trusting the unknown horizon, but it’s always worth it.
Oh and did I mention it’s a really cute story, with fun twists, loveable characters and I’m hoping it’ll become a movie? It would be a fun one for the big screen. And just once in my life I want an excuse to dress up for a ball. Just sayin…
I definitely recommend this one – you’ll be entertained for sure! So what’s one of your favorite fairy tales? Oh and have you read Rachel Hauck before? If not, you are missing out!! You need to fix that.
