The Fairytale by Marianne Evans
Amy Monarch is a tireless volunteer at the Dupont Rescue and Recovery Center, an establishment for the destitute founded by her mother. There, Amy has kept her identity a carefully guarded secret. She is actually Princess Amelia Marguerite Louise DeLaGrande of Remeth. Working at Dupont offers the opportunity to serve in blessed disguise.
Fresh into a promising career in commercial real estate brokerage, Patrick Sawyer returns to the picturesque isle of Remeth intending to reconnect with his collegiate study abroad friends and figure out ‘what’s next’ in his life. Since his father’s passing, the world he knows leaves him uninspired. He volunteers at Dupont during his visit, and becomes enchanted by Amy.
But Amelia is trapped within a silken web. When she reveals who she is, Patrick pulls back. He’s not interested in royalty—at all—but how can she ever break free? How can she find a way to service and God’s plan for her life? Most of all, how can she reconcile the call she feels toward a remarkable man who may be ‘common,’ yet is ‘uncommon’ when it comes to matters of the heart?

What a awesome story! Such a beautiful fairytale. I so loved the characters. Amy Monarch is volunteering at Dupont Rescue and Recovery Center. But in order to work there she has to keep her identity a secret. Cause she is really a princess. She meets Patrick Sawyer there who is in real estate. There with a friend trying to figure out what he wants in life. He is all lined up to take over his fathers position after his death, but Patrick isn't sure that's what he wants for his life. Working at the Center he is getting very smitten with Amy. Amy feels she needs to come clean and tell him who she really is. Can a princess and a commoner make it? Two lives so totally different. Patrick isn't sure of all the publicity. Will he listen to what God has in mind for him?
Loved this story by Marianne. Very well written!
