Memorable Monday - May 21, 2018

It's time for another Memorable Monday! Does anyone else think the weeks go by too quickly? This idea was created by Becca from The Becca Files to highlight books that we've read in the past and are memorable to us. 

The book I'm highlighting today is The Princess by Lori Wick.

Why It's Memorable

This is one of my all-time favorite books!!!  I am highlighting it this week since I thought someone might be looking for a good story about about royalty or a princess. I saw some snips of the royal wedding on Saturday (I was up bright and early to get ready for our annual yard sale) and I really enjoyed what I saw. 

The Princess is SUCH a sweet story! I have read it several times and I love it each time. Shelby is so likable and it is interesting to watch her continue to be herself after she enters into an arranged marriage. I think I would want to be friends with Shelby if she were real. Her character inspires me to try to be a better person! Nikolai is a wonderful hero. He's so patient with Shelby and it just melts my heart.

From the Back of the Book

In the land of Pendaran, lively, affectionate Shelby Parker was born to a simple life - yet her mother, Daria, and those around her cannot help but notice the graces she possesses. Among those taking note of Shelby's winsome ways and tender heart are the king and queen of the House of Markham, who are seeking a new wife for their widowed son, Prince Nikolai.

To uphold a long-cherished tradition of their country, Shelby and Nikolai agree to an arranged marriage. But while Nikolai is a perfect gentleman at public functions, he remains distant and shy at home, leaving Shelby to ponder the inner workings of his heart. Will the prince ever love her as he did his first wife? Can the faith they share overcome the barriers between them?

Now It's Your Turn!
