Item Description...
Snow White, Cinderella, and Sleeping Beauty. Every little girl grew up hearing the stories of "happily ever after," but is that the world in which she exists today?

Living in this not-so-fairy-tale world, you are torn between everything you longed for and everything you live with. You wonder how your heart will survive, because what you have isn't even close to what you hoped for. Hang on! Real hope is found in the tension between the two-in an invisible kingdom. This place is where you discover the true heart of a princess-one full of dreams, wonder, delight, and joy. And you learn to keep it alive, even in the midst of this crazy, disappointed, hard-to-understand world.

Publishers Description

How can a woman live with hope . . . in the midst of reality?

You were once a little girl, dreaming of "happily ever after" like a fairy-tale princess. But unlike the fantasy world of Sleeping Beauty or Cinderella, reality has hit you hard.

Living in the not-so-fairy-tale world of laundry, kids, carpools, and your sometimes not-so-charming prince, you wonder how your heart wil survive, because "what you have" isn't even close to "what you hoped for." Hang on Real hope is found in the tension between the two―in an invisible kingdom. This place is where you discover the true heart of a princess―one full of dreams, wonder, delight, and joy.

With rich insights and compelling stories, Nicole helps you discover the timeless truths that can transform a woman's heart into the heart of a princess. You are recognized by the King, loved by the Prince, and promised the happiest "happily ever after" of all times.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Every woman should read this book.  Mar 17, 2007
I enjoyed this book so much that I read it twice and purchased a copy for my best friend.
loved it!  Feb 12, 2006
I loved this book! It was so easy to get into and spoke so many truths about women. It was simple enough to follow and the writing style was superb. If you liked Captivated by Stasi Eldridge then you'll love this one as well.
A Good Piece for Troubled Times  Nov 23, 2005
This book has a very special feel to it, because it makes you feel special about who you are.
The author has an interesting take on the elements as to why the fairy tale stays allive, which are the elements of recognition, adoration and consolation.
Johnson, however, is playing up more to the notion of disneyfied fairy tales and admits that those are not what we need as adults. As a reasult she rightfully is pointing to authors like CS Lewis, George MacDonald and Tolkein as stirring the adult psyche.
"Hope is beleiving in spite of the evidence and watching the evidence change," is what Jim Wallis says who is an incredible activist and preacher.
Timing of when you read things is everything because Nicole Johnson made me beleive in those words in a different way.
If this book is read when it feels like our hopes have disappointed it will be a true gem and it has a wonderful, magical feel to it. I have felt like my hopes have disappointed me and i know that i have become cynical about some things in my life. Johnson's approach was challenging and comforting.
Her approach to sentimentaltiy versus love was important. However, I realized that as an activist that i do need that sentimental feel from romantic comedy to remind myself how to feel and how to hope. Johnson pointed to God and reminded me that such things are merely surface items, although they can be comforting at times as well.
I would say that I would recommend this book to other female christian friends during troubled times. When we face our own disappointments. Don't read this when you are feeling the need to think: Johnson is negligent of a true content analysis of our culture's approach to things. Johnson is also negligent of pulling in scripture until the last part of the book. Johnson also does not really go into much detail on feminazis versus sentimental women tendencies which would have been interesting as well. The book does not have very solid research in anything beyond the literary and cultural fairy tale and even then does not go into much detail. However she does touch briefly on these things in a way that can bring a cup of comfort in discouraging times. I do not think that she means for it to be solid research as much as something to stir our souls. It is a well written piece of work, and there is a lot of truth to her words that stirs the soul. It is well written and i love the imagery that she uses her words and it is more like an essay that you would read in a church than something that you would bring to an academic setting.
I would recommend this book, just not necessarily when you feel the need to think too critically. Like I said, it is a good piece for troubled times.
It was ok  Oct 3, 2005
Not that it was a bad book but I think it's geared toward those who are more jaded with life. I did like how the author reminded us that we are daughters of the King and the last chapter for me, made the whole book.
Wonderful, wonderful book ...  Aug 19, 2005
I loved this book so much that I'm having trouble deciding which of my friends to lend it to first! It touches on so many issues that all women face today and puts things right back in the right perspective. I highly recommend this book!!!!
