The moment Ivan stumbled upon a clearing in the dense Carpathian forest, his life was forever changed: atop a pedestal encircled by fallen leaves, the beautiful princess Katerina lay still as death. But beneath the foliage a malevolent presence stirred, sending the 10-year-old scrambling for the safety of Cousin Marek's farm. Now years later, Ivan is an American graduate students engaged to be married. Yet he cannot forget that day long ago, or convince himself that it was a frightened boy's fantasy.
Compelled to return to his native land, Ivan finds the clearing just as he left it. But this time he does not run-this time he awakens the beauty with a kiss and steps into a world that vanished a thousand years ago. A rich tapestry of clashing worlds and cultures, Enchantment is a powerfully original novel of love and destiny that transcends centuries.

Don’t waste your time on the abridged addition
Spend the extra money and listen to the entire book. There’s too much plot line missing in the story is broken up into far too many pieces that just don’t connect the way they should. It’s a wonderful “sleeping beauty“ story and actually makes the story of said character believable if you believe in magic and sorcery. The author does a wonderful Job leading out his vision which is why I keep listening to it over and over and over again.
