It seems like a dream come true . . . until it forces her to question everything.
Brielle Adebayo is fully content teaching at a New York City public school and taking annual summer vacations with her mother to Martha's Vineyard. But everything changes when her mom drops a bombshell--Brielle is really a princess in the island kingdom of Ọlọrọ Ilé, off the coast of Africa, and she must immediately assume her royal position, since the health of her grandfather, the king, is failing.
Distraught by all the secrets her mother kept, Brielle is further left spinning when the Ọlọrọ Ilé Royal Council brings up an old edict that states she must marry before her coronation, or the crown will pass to another. Brielle is uncertain if she even wants the throne, and with her world totally shaken, where will she find the courage to take a chance on love and brave the perils a wrong decision may bring?
About The Author
Can you imagine finding out, out of the blue, that your a Princess? That is what happens to Brielle Bayo, a young woman living in NYC, and making her living as a teacher. Talk about a life change!
We travel as this young woman travels to meet the Grandfather, the king, that she has never known, a beautiful Island country, off the coast of Africa. I can just see her as she glimpses the castle for the first time, oh wow.
I love that she brought her best friend with her, and her friend plays a great part in this book, and loved her creativity, and her heart!
Your in for a treat as we go along on dates, recommended by the Council, and meet these prospective Princes. There are also people who do not believe this young woman should be a Princess, never mind a Queen.
This is a page turner, and a treat! A bit of sweet romance, some danger, and lush surroundings.
I received this book through Net Galley and the Publisher Bethany House, and was not required to give a positive review.
