"ONCE UPON A TIME"

IS TIMELESS

In a quiet fishing village seventeen years ago, one lone fisherman rescued a child from the sea. He and his wife raised the girl, Pearl, as their own daughter, never allowing themselves to wonder long about where she came from — or notice her silver hair, usually pale skin, and wide, dark blue eyes.

Pearl grows from a mysterious child into an unusual young woman, not always welcomed in the village. As all the other girls her age find husbands, she has only one friend to ease her loneliness. One very special, secret companion: Prince James.

But their friendship is shaken when trouble erupts in the kingdom — a conspiracy against the royal family combines with an evil enchantment from beneath the sea. Now, just when Pearl and James need each other most, bewitching magic and hints about Pearl's past threaten to tear them apart...forever.

Synopsis:

Once upon a time in the Kingdom of Aster a strange thing happened. They say the prince married a girl who was not what she appeared and that another girl who saved the kingdom vanished without a trace. Some said it was witchcraft. Some said it was only a legend. For those who knew the truth, it was magic. Original.

This was a wonderful book! The details Debbie gave were amazing. I personally am a fan of teen romance, so when I read this book I couldn't put it down!! Pearl's longing for the sea, her changing friendship with Prince James, and having to marry a man whom she doesn't love. All the while dealing with Kale and his younger sister Faye, who give her hints of her past before Finneas-her adoptive father- found her during a storm, and Kale's love for Pearl!! This is an enchanting read, a book that will keep teens on their toes!!!! (At least the girls!)=)

This is a wonderful new twist on an old classic. The plot shifts back and forth and is wonderfully written. While the ending left something to be desired this book is still worth reading.
