A Kingdom waiting to be saved. Delightfully spellbinding tale.
Poisoned and dying, Princess Rosamund lies hidden, awaiting her true love. But time may have stolen the crown that she didn’t even want.
Demelza Carlton has a flair for rewriting history. Fairy Tale History. In a way to delight the young at heart. Perhaps a little bit risqué for the younger reader but it tugs at the heartstrings of those romantics among us.
This tale is far from the Sleeping Beauty formula but provides a powerful fairy tale for the modern era, granting an ever-after to the prince and princess in all of us. Hallmark meets Disney, complete with all of just the right magic.
