In this humorous and insightful tale, a modern day princess finds herself single and asking for magical intervention to change her sorry love life. Rather than casting a spell to bring Prince Charming to her rescue, a savvy fairy godmother gives the tenderhearted damsel an unexpected gift. By entrusting her true thoughts and desires to an unlikely confidant, the young royal soon discovers that the person who could make her life everything she dreamed it would be has been with her all along.
As author Kym Petrie herself realized, every woman needs a froggy friend and a secret journal—and enough adventures with the girls to keep her heart pounding and her mind racing. Life is meant to be about happy beginnings . . . you can never have enough of them.
THE ENCHANTED TRUTH was a very quick short story. It encompassed a few fairy tales although its main focus seemed to be The Frog Prince.
How can I review it…? It was so short and I didn’t write my review right away so I barely remember any details. It didn’t have any specific character names so they blur together. It was more of a modern take on a fairy tale, but I didn’t find it that intriguing and it was too short to really make a connection to it, even if it was only a short story.
Overall, the story had a good message which essentially was not to wait around for love to find you and complain about being single. The princess in the story actually had to make a lot of changes to herself before she started finding her “prince” and realize that once she had her own life in order, things started to fall into place on their own. I really liked the message in the story because it’s one I fully believe myself! I truly think that unless you’re happy with yourself, it’ll be difficult to find a partner/significant other and if you keep searching for it, you’re hurting your chances to find it because you may be overlooking what’s right in front of you. Just one of my personal philosophies!
Eh, there wasn’t much to it so you’re not missing much. It wasn’t awful but I definitely wouldn’t go out of my way to recommend it.
