"ONCE UPON A TIME"
IS TIMELESS

In a quiet fishing village seventeen years ago, one lone fisherman rescued a child from the sea. He and his wife raised the girl, Pearl, as their own daughter, never allowing themselves to wonder long about where she came from -- or notice her silver hair, usually pale skin, and wide, dark blue eyes.

Pearl grows from a mysterious child into an unusual young woman, not always welcomed in the village. As all the other girls her age find husbands, she has only one friend to ease her loneliness. One very special, secret companion: Prince James.

But their friendship is shaken when trouble erupts in the kingdom -- a conspiracy against the royal family combines with an evil enchantment from beneath the sea. Now, just when Pearl and James need each other most, bewitching magic and hints about Pearl's past threaten to tear them apart...forever.

This was actually a very interesting retelling. It was great how the book had many twists added to the original story. When I was reading, I was so into it, then when I least expected it, the plot took a big twist and added more suspense to the story. Either way, I was into this book pretty much the whole time.

beautifully written. this book also illustrates the fear humanity demonstrated on those different from others and what those who can look past the difference will do to protect them.

Satisfied my longing for a grownup version of the classic fairy tale while still holding with the fantasy world flare.
