I have a feeling Melanie Dickerson will become a new favorite author of mine. I loved this story; it had a wonderful fairytale quality to it, while at the same time sounding up-to-date enough for the contemporary reader. While technically a Young Adult book, it’s the kind of romance that will appeal to any age. Dickerson has a heroine who appeals to the reader because she is a mixture of quiet/shy yet feisty. It’s that underlying feistiness that catches the prince’s eye. It’s a medieval tale loosely based on Sleeping Beauty, and has an authentic feel to it. I especially enjoyed the hero and heroine’s spiritual journey as each one is forced to grow in their faith. Wonderful ending. Some great *sigh* moments. Can’t wait to read the next fairytale! And hope there are many more to come.
