However, I did completely disagree with her stance on anger. Anger is a natural human emotion and when used appropriately it is not a sin. It is not the emotion that is the sin but what we do with it. Remember in the Bible when Jesus became angry when he entered the Temple only to find a market set up? He turned tables and the like. And we all know that Jesus was sinless.
Like I said I did like the book overall. I thought it was a pretty good and relaxing read.
i loved the princess when i read it--and that was when i was in 6th grade. there, the concept seemed kind of cute, because it had a distinct twist on fairy tale quality that almost made the imaginary country ok. but here, maybe because i'm of asian descent, it just seemed silly and almost offensive.
anyway, it's a fun read, in the end. it's just not something i would recommend as a "definitely read this" to anyone--but if you're a lori wick fan, go for it.
I did like this book, however. It ran on a little long (by about 50 pages)and at times she seemed to be saying "Look at everything I know about foreign adoptions, see how much research I did." As someone who has personally been involved in several foreign adoptions, I can tell you she did get it right. She just hasn't gotten comfortable with exposition.
The rest of the story was cute, but I had trouble swallowing how much control Lily's father had over her. I don't think Ms. Wick has any idea what a real abusive situation is like.
On the other hand, my mother loves her books. She just wants a nice escapist fiction, where the characters are all beautiful and perfect, where faith is never in doubt, and where love triumphs over all. If this is what you are looking for this book is perfect for you. If not, don't bother, you'll just end up frustrated.
