Heart of a Princess
by Hannah Currie
Book 2 in the Daughters of Peverell series
Wow. I was pleasantly surprised at how much more I liked this second book in the series more than the first. I really enjoyed the first book, Heart of a Royal, but I felt that this book had so much more depth and character development. I laughed and cried and lost sleep over this one.
Princess Alina has a secret that no one really knows about. When she is sent away to help her deal with her problems, the farm is the last place she’d ever expected. A princess doesn’t know how to milk a cow, cook dinner, or bake a dessert. How is she supposed to get on with her life with her fiancé, Prince Marcos of Hedonia, if she is stuck in such an uncomfortable place? Can Joha help her see the beauty and peace to be found or will he be the one to drive her further away from asking for help?
Alina’s character is one that I really disliked in the first book. Her immaturity was a good contrast to McKenna, but in this book, Alina gets a chance to change. She is thrown into a place where her insecurities and imperfections abound and she must deal with her struggles to always be the perfect princess and royal like her deceased mother she never knew. I loved her by the middle of the book and laughed at her relationship with Joha. I cried with her as she learned to open up and trust in God.
I highly recommend this book and series for those that enjoy fairytale-like princess stories with romance, humor, and ducks.
