Once Upon a Time…

In the kingdom of Tranen, a king makes a promise to his dying wife that he'll only remarry a woman who possesses her golden hair. In time, the king's eyes are turned by his daughter. Realizing her father’s intentions, Princess Aurelia tries to trick him by requesting impossible gifts: dresses created by the sun, moon and stars, and a coat made of a thousand furs. But when he is successful, Aurelia sacrifices her privileged life and flees her kingdom, disguised by the cloak and a new name, Allerleirauh.

She enters the safe haven of Saarland der Licht, where the handsome and gentle Prince Klaus takes her under his care. Hoping not to be discovered by her father’s courtiers, Allerleirauh tries to remain hidden under her new identity when she finds unexpected love with Prince Klaus, even though his arranged marriage to the princess of a neighboring kingdom approaches. Risking everything, Allerleirauh must face her troubled past and her fears of the future along her journey to self-acceptance in this triumphant retelling of the classic Grimm Fairy Tale. 

My Review: LOVE! 

Allerleirauh was a princess by another name. But she left that life behind when her father the King noticed her. Noticed in her what he saw in her mother and the promise he made her. When he got her all the gifts she thought to be impossible, she couldn't stay. 

Right now she's under the care of Prince Klaus. She hopes to remain there and be safe from the King. What she didn't expect was to fall in love with the prince. Nothing that is happening is easy. Her hiding away, her feelings for one who belongs to another, and her emotions are everywhere. If she wants to be free and happy then she needs to face everything. This is risky, but one she is willing to take. 

Allerleirauh is a wonderful character. The story was built perfectly and you'll be sucked in right from the start. This is a must read for all!
