This book was pretty slow moving and at the end I thought, is that all? It is a tale of Princess Christianna, royalty of a small European nation. It is her journey of coming to terms with her heretage and responsibility and of course there is a love interest that is fraught with problems. The was not much depth to the characters and the story was really contrived.
I thought the events leading up to the end of the book were all rather convenient, if also a bit sad. All in all, I would say the book was pretty mediocre.
