For Ages: 12 and up
Seventeen-year-old Violet is amazed when a storm brings the dashing Prince Richard to her impoverished family’s farm.

Now on a quest to be reunited with her true love, Violet must rely on her wits—and a little help from an unexpected source—to compete with princesses, pass the king and queen’s tests, and prove herself worthy of being Richard’s bride.
