In blue jeans and a pullover, Princess Christianna is a
young woman of her times: born in Europe, educated in
America, worried about the future of the world she lives
in, responsible beyond her years. Christianna is the only
daughter of the Reigning Prince of a European nation that
takes its royalty seriouslyâ€”and her father has iron clad
plans for Christianna's life, a burden which is almost
unbearable for her.
Now, after four years at Berkeley, life in her father's
palace cannot distract Christianna from what she sees
outside the kingdomâ€”the suffering of children, the ravages
of terrorism and disease. Determined to make a difference
in the world, she persuades His Royal Highness, her
father, to let her volunteer for the Red Cross in East
Africa. And for Christianna, a journey of discovery,
change, and awakening begins.
