Beautiful love story without any suggestive content.

I have never read a story about such an actively religious society. There've been religious characters in books, but they're usually side characters who are regarded as a bit queer. It was really unique and refreshing to read about characters so deep in their faith that they pray at any time, about virtually anything - that's amazing to me, as a Christian who has serious problems with remembering and taking the time to pray.

The book itself isn't anything special; it might entertain some young adults but it is overall too simple for me - although it is certainly well-meaning!

Absolutely loved this book! Even though it is unrealistic...a modern day fairy tale, don't we all love those? It's sweet and romantic. I keep it on my shelf and read it ever so often.

I usually don't read a lot of Christian fiction. But, I had heard good things about this book. I was not disappointed. When Prince Nikali's first wife dies, he ends up in an arranged marriage to Shelby. This book tells how, with help from God, they fall in love. This was a sweet modern day fairy tale.

What a great story. Of course it is every girls' fairy-tale to become Cinderella and marry the Prince, but what if the prince doesn't turn out to be quite as charming as you expected? Would you still trust in God to help you to be committed to a man that doesn't love you, when you are not even sure you can love him either?

This is the most beautiful and heartfelt love story of commitment, faith, humbleness and true love that I have ever read. It has its fairy-tale aspects, but the treasures that are gained from reading it are so real.

You learn how to love and show kindness even under difficult circumstances. I recommend this book to all lovers of Christian fiction.
