Looking behind the fairy-tale take on romance

- CHEGOFATSO MODIKA

MANY little girls dream of marrying a prince or a king, being the fairest in the land and living happily ever after. If this sounds familiar, you will love reading, by Kiera Cass. The book is described as an epic royal romance.

Everyone wants King Jameson to ask for their hand in marriage and when he declares his love for

Lady Hollis Brite, she is thrilled. After all, she grew up at Keresken Castle, competing for the king’s attention alongside other royal daughters.

The Betrothed

The Betrothed,

Capturing his heart is a dream come true.

But Hollis soon realises that falling in love with a king and becoming queen may not be the “happily ever after” she thought it would be.

And when she meets an ordinary man with the mysterious power to see right into her heart, she finds that the future she really wants is one that she never imagined. This story proves the famous saying that “the heart wants what it wants” – and that sometimes we do not really want what the crowd wants, but just for someone to see us for who we really are on the inside.

Wishing you a very happy sixth birthday for today, Kayden Heuvel. All our love from mommy, daddy, sister Keauna, Ma, Pa and the rest of the family.
