it was amazing

In this retelling of the Princess and the Pea fairy tale, Violet meets the dashing Prince Richard on a stormy day when he is injured on her family farm. It is love at first sight. Although he loves her, he cannot marry her, but must marry a princess instead. Violet discovers her true identity as the lost Princess of the kingdom she lives in, competes in the contest devised by Prince Richard's parents to find his wife, and learns she must trust her heart in order to win back her kingdom and the Prince.
An enjoyable read with a smart heroine. A small short book that proves you don't have to fill a book with needless pages like those 400 page books in the same genre in order to tell a good story.
