Book Review: Once Upon a Prince

Rachel Hauck's Once Upon a Prince is a story surrounding "A Royal Prince.  An Ordinary Girl.  An Extraordinary Royal Wedding."

Susanna Truitt's life is not going according to plan and Susanna loves having a plan.  Upon coming to the realization that her twelve year relationship is just a plan and not love, Susanna is left wondering what are God's plans for her life.  

Prince Nathaniel on the other hand is tired of having his life planned out and wants to break the conventional rules surrounding his role in order to fulfill God's plans for his life.  Will he be able to reconcile his sense of duty as the royal heir with his royal heart yearning to love freely?

Nathaniel and Susanna's story is an all too common tale of girl meets prince, falls in love, and happily ever after.  While being a bit too predictable and far-reaching for my taste, I did enjoy the growth in Susanna.  

There was more of her.  She felt it, like a largeness in her spirit that she couldn't see or define or grasp with her hands, but it made her strive for something more.  Yet it began with having nothing at all.  Total surrender.  p. 179

After seemingly losing it all, she is still willing to lose even more to gain God's will for her life.  Seeing her willing to lose the security and comfort of her plans for God's showed her spiritual development.  Aurora's character often brought refreshing times to bring Susanna right back to where God wanted her, but I would have liked her not to seem flighty.  

Those that enjoy a fairy-tale romance will enjoy this read.
