Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

She’s so special already, Lord, Daria Parker prayed. Now she has You, and I can’t help but wonder if You might have something very remarkable and unfamiliar for our Shelby.

In the Land of Pendaran, lively, affectionate Shelby Parker was born to a simple life—yet her mother, Daria, and those around her cannot help but notice the graces she possesses. Among those taking note of Shelby’s winsome ways and tender heart are the king and queen of the House of Markham, who are seeking a new wife for their widowed son, Prince Nikolai.

To uphold a long-cherished tradition of the country, Shelby and Nikolai agree to an arranged marriage. But while Nikolai is a perfect gentleman at public functions, he remains distant and shy at home, leaving Shelby to ponder the inner workings of his heart. Will the prince ever love her as he did his first wife? Can the faith they share overcome the barriers between them?

A contemporary story of honor and commitment freely given and richly rewarded

The Princess was the first Wick novel I read, and since then I have read every one of her books. What I love about her is that you know exactly where she's coming from, her faith and love for the Lord saturates each book she writes, and this one is no exception. Perhaps the best part about this novel is the fantasy of it; a handsome, contemporary prince in an imaginary land marries, and falls in love with a normal citizen. Isn't that why we read fiction- to be taken away from everyday life for a few hours? I highly recommend this book and any other of Wick's, for her sweet stories and uncompromising commitment to Christ.

Format: Paperback
I am a very picky reader. Basically I read Bodie Thoene and Linda Chaikin. I picked up the Princess one day and didn't put it down until I was finished. Shelby and Nikolai are very complex characters, Christian, but still flawed. They seem so real. They're not perfect, and Ms. Wick makes this obvious.Some authors don't develop the characters all that well. Spiritual characters often seem like they're perfect. While we are reminded of Shelby's sweetness and positive qualities, we're also aware of her mistakes and shortcomings.
Nikolai is also a very believable character. He is compliant with tradition, but will have nothing to do with Shelby because he doesn't want her to replace Yvette. Yet he is a loving and caring person, so he realizes his mistakes.
This story is about Nikolai and Shelby coming together. Shelby is ready for Nick to love her, but he's not ready. As soon as he begins to realize what a wonderful person she is, it might be too late for her to love him. You can pretty much predict the ending, but that didn't bother me. The excellence of this story is in how we reach the ending. The struggles they go through to love each other and act as a normal husband and wife even though nothing about their relationship was normal.
The plot of this story is excellent. It's not your typical sappy romance. It deals with a lot of issues like learning to love. When Nick is in pain over losing Yvette, you feel so bad for him, yet you feel Shelby's loneliness as well.
The development of Pendaran is excellent as well. I even noticed how Ms. Wick displays special characteristics of this fictional country. There are hints of a different dialect and you can tell the culture is different.
I absolutely love this book. It's wonderful. I would suggest this to anyone out there. It's very spiritual and entertaining.

I loved this novel. The characters, setting, plot all seemed so real and made you want to be apart of it all. I'm only 15, and this has given me a life lesson in love - I think anyone should read this. It has faith, romance, suspense, and fun.

This was my first Wick book, given to me by a friend. I absolutely loved it, and have read it over and over. To the lady who accused Ms. Wick of being wick-ed, I would say, "Why on earth can't the church bring the issues of sexual intimacy between a husband and a wife into the open?" If the church would be more open and honest in dealing with these types of topics, we wouldn't have the church learning about sex from the world. This book is a wonderful example of how a husband and a wife can really learn to love one another, emotionally, physically, and mentally. Above all, it's a STORY! To be enjoyed!
I know some Christians who would think it a sin to read Harlequin romance novels. Don't throw stones in ignorance!

Format: Paperback
I think The Princess is a very touching story of two people who don't come togeather under normal circimstances, but gradually let their love for God see them through their rocky begining. When I first heard of this book I became very interested in it because I have been a fan of Lori Wick for quite some time. But I have to admit that I was very surpised when I began reading the first page and found it was set in 1994. Lori Wick has a certain nack for writing books set in the past, she pulls it off well and is a wonderful at it. It was quite hard for me at times to see the characters of this novel in our time but on the whole the story was believable and worth while.

The Pricess is one of my favorite books. Sometimes I think about a certain part of it, go to read that part, and then end up rereading practically the whole book! The story is about Shelby, a woman who marries Prince Nikolai, a stranger to her who just lost his wife. It shows the way their relationship grows and how they both struggle to accept each other. They both have to learn that love is a choice, and they face many difficulties as they learn that lesson. This book shows the power of prayer and love in the lives of two of God's children.

This was the first of Lori Wick's 23+ books that I have read, and I can't say how much it has blessed my heart. I read it last night for the 5th time, and I learn something new about relationships, getting on with my past, loving people with all that I have, and just how to be the wife that I hope to one day be. I am a senior in college and at least once a semester I am drawn to this book again because it takes me to a land that I can only hope to be in, and just because of the simple way it is written. I have now gotten about 6 of my friends started on these books because of the Princess. Even my mom read it and liked it - it is a book for all ages, but especially for girls who need a good excuse to read a beautiful love story. It Got me Smilin, and will do so for you too if you give it a chance. Enjoy the innocence of the book itself and may it bring you closer to God.
