A fun, fantasy fairytale of love and treachery that will tease your senses, play with words, make you chuckle, break your heart and put it back together again! GRACE AND DIGNITY: THE ARK OF THE SACRED SCROLLS by Laura Grody is better than those fairy tales we read as children, because it is as grown up as we like to think we are, yet feeds our inner need for that

The Kingdom of Love, Commitment City, Celestial Mountains, Sea of Love, Sea of Knowledge, and the Isles of Bliss…these are only a few of the locales and destinations in the world that makes up the home of Prince Dignity and Princess Grace! This Young Adult novel, I will say was one of the most unique, rare and feel- good books I have read in a while!

Grace and Dignity was true to form a fairy tale telling, and was simply a pleasure for me to read and experienced the journey!

The story follows the

If you hand me a book and tell me, “It’s a fairy tale twisted with a bit of mystery” I would snag it up and read it probably in one sitting. In the last year I’ve really enjoyed reading the different interpretations by authors with the fairy tale genre. All of the ones I have read are just perfect with the twisting. That is why I was excited to read Laura’s book.

I fell in love with Princess Grace right away. She has a sense of innocence about her that hasn’t been spoiled by life outside of her

Grace and Dignity follows the classic fairy tale archetype:
1. Man and woman fall in love.
2. Man and woman are separated.
3. Man and woman must overcome the impossible to save their love and do right by their kingdom.
4. Man and woman... well, you know. I'll stop here because of spoilers.

But Grace and Dignity is definitely not your average fairy tale love story... because Laura Grody uses language and puns and cultural references to spice the familiar story line up.

And it totally worked.

This book is not only about how love conquer all, but how the power of the "Golden Rule" and all that follows will over power all evil.
That you got to trust in you and everyone, for the world and everything around it to fall into place. I loved the word play... the names of people and places and how it just fits that person. It would be great if I was introduced as not just by my name but my true personality.
This is a love story, yes, but .... okay well

This is a wonderful tale that teaches young people (of any age!) that Love really can prevail over evil and that treating those around us with respect earns us that respect in return.

Told in such a way that is completely understandable, even with the metaphysical elements of the story, the reader is drawn in to the story and joins the race around The Kingdom searching with the characters for the much needed solutions.

The characters are all well thought out and can be fully connected with as they

I just finished "Grace and Dignity". What a charming, fantastical story of love and accomplishment. On the surface, it is such a delightful fantasy, which lifted my spirits and caused me to chuckle at the entertaining images and dialogue. Underlying the whimsical, the spiritual symbolism invoked tenderness and optimism; I found my eyes tearing at the power contained in this simple story of "love conquers all". This book is definitely a "must read" for enjoyable entertainment and for increasing ...more

I may be a little biased here, because I am friends a with the author and remember discussing a few of the things in this book, but I certainly enjoyed reading it to my daughter and know she will want to read it again and again!

WARNING: you may get a cavity after reading it because it is so sweet!

Grace and Dignity is a book that is very different than anything I have ever read before. Laura has written a story that is perfect for middle school readers to adults. I loved the way she gets her point across that character counts. This book should be in every library.
