The Princess Who Believed in Fairy Tales is an enchanting and inspiring modern-day story set in olden times that symbolizes the journey we all take through life as we sort out illusion from reality, come to terms with our childhood dreams and pain, and discover who we really are and how life works. Raised by a king and queen who are as strict and unaccepting as they are loving, the sweet, gentle Princess Victoria grows up dreaming of being rescued by a Prince Charming, as in her beloved fairy tales. When she is rescued all seems right with the world-until the prince turns out to be less than charming. On the advice of a delightful, singing, banjo-playing owl, the princess embarks on a challenging journey of self-discovery on the Path of Truth. Along the way, she nearly drowns in the Sea of Emotion, passes through the bewildering Land of Illusion,learns how to recognize truth at the Campsite for Lost Travelers, and enters the eye-opening Land of Is in search of the Temple of Truth and the Sacred Scroll. Finally, with the help of the owl and other unique, insightful friends, she discovers that fairy tales really can come true-although not in the way she thought. For all those who have struggled with childhood pain, with feelings of not being good enough, or who have given up their power to a hurtful prince, The Princess Who Believed in Fairy Tales proves that happy endings-and new beginnings-are always possible.
