But she's content to be a small-town girl, running a classic auto restoration shop, unaware a secret destiny awaits her. One that will leap from the pages of her grandmother's hand-painted book of fairytales.
Tanner Burkhardt is the stoic Minister of Culture for the Grand Duchy of Hessenberg. When he is tasked to retrieve the long-lost princess, he must overcome his fear of failure in order to secure his nation's future---and his own.
Yet lurking in the political shadows is a fierce opponent with sinister plans to abolish the throne forever. Overwhelmed with opposition, Regina must decide if she's destined to restore old cars or an ancient nation. Together---with a little divine intervention---Regina and Tanner discover the truth of her heritage and the healing power of true love.
What would you do if you found out that who you thought you were wasn't who you really were? That who you really were means giving up everything from your past? And that your choice affects and entire nation? Such is the premise of Rachel Hauck's new book. The way she fleshes out the struggle to believe that faces Regina leaves you thinking about what you were chosen to do in this life.
Everyone loves a good princess story and this one reminds me more than a little of the Princess Diaries, but since the protagonist is a grown woman and not a teenager it's perhaps a little more believable. Nevertheless, I thoroughly enjoy Hauck's novels and look forward to more in the future.
