Some women say they didn’t want this life. It was thrust upon them—or so they choose to believe. They are victims in a cruel and lonely world. They blame everyone around them for their life choices and radiate insecurity, jealousy, and bitterness. The once tender heart of the dreamer has become hardened and wrapped in the protective coverings of feminist mantras and an ever-looping track of “I Will Survive” on their MP3 players.
With unrelenting wit and humor, Donya Dunlap seamlessly weaves examples from Biblical scripture with the story of her search for a fairy tale life. In her journey, she has found that the true fairy life is not found within the arms of Prince Charming, but in the embrace of God.

What others are saying…
As a married woman, I wasn’t sure how much this book would apply to my life personally, but I was pleasantly surprised. I found it to be exactly what I needed, and really what any girl or woman – married or not – needs to read right now. With today’s culture of romantic comedies that give unrealistic ideals of relationships and life in general, Dunlap graciously gives us a new ideal of a more satisfying fulfillment of our dreams. We read that our true Prince Charming is so much more than we dreamed, and we’re just looking in all the wrong places for satisfaction. And we read this while feeling as though we are chatting with a close friend who’s sharing her heart, not as though we are being scolded or sitting in a classroom.

A heartfelt read from an incredible writer. Step back, relax, and prepare to be changed by a book that shows what true love is really all about.

While this is written by a single lady, with a single audience in mind, the principles of “finding your true love in Christ” are applicable to women in all walks of life. We all want Prince Charming, but what if that’s not what I got? Finding true love and fulfillment in Christ can help a married woman see past the “fairy tale” that she bought into, and help her to choose to invest in the love story she’s been given by God – even if it wasn’t the one she dreamed of as a little girl.
