Frankly, I couldn't finish this book. I managed to get about 130 pages into it, despite warring with myself to abandon it several times, and I finally put it down for good when I could stand it no longer. I read ALOT of books and I simply could not make myself read one more page of this drivel.
The story had potential and could have been good in the end, but I'll never find out because it was so poorly written. The words and thoughts are repetitive and much of the text is 'in the character's head' rather than having the story portrayed through dialogue and action. This translates to one huge yawn for the reader. I suppose if you're a die-hard Danielle Steele reader, you might stick it out and even enjoy it. But I've read too much really good fiction for this to hold my interest.
Princess Christianna is a young girl who has just returned from college in the States. Now she feels stifled and bored with her 'real' life in her small country. After a life altering experience in Russia, she convinces her Father to let her go to East Africa as a volunteer for the Red Cross. That is when her life begins . . . .
liked the story line but Steel repeats the same thing over and over. this book could be 1/2 the length. how many times do you need to say that the main character is petite, that her father adores her etc etc....
This is a story about a Princess who wants to help people and do something meaningful with her life. It is a nice story.
the story of a princess in Liechenstein and how she feels about the confinement about being a royal... good reading
