Barely a Princess
Based in the fjord regions of Quebec, Canada, during the 1840s. Barely a Princess is a book about a girl named Anika who is a princess to the kingdom of Bergendelle, a moderately sized kingdom with a long ruling royal family descended from norse-men explorers who colonized North America between 1000-1100 AD. After hundreds of years of wars between kingdoms and raiders, Bergendelle became the super power of North America, claiming land consisting of modern day, Quebec, Ontario, and New York.
Princess Anika is 17 years old and the fifth born daughter to King Anthony. You would think having four older sisters would be hard enough but Anika has always felt like something wasn’t right, her mother, Queen Wilhelmina, has always treated her with a pretense of shame or displeasure. Anika learned to mind her place but one evening during her sister Cornelia’s Coming Out party, she falls in love with Steven, a prince to the kingdom of New France; Bergendelle’s closest neighbor to the north. Anika decides to introduce Prince Steven to her Mother but after an harsh argument, breaking Anika’s heart, she foolishly runs away into the woods. After being ambushed by Imps, her father comes in to rescue her by using magic that she never knew he possessed but it came at a cost. The King’s body begins to turn to stone and is bed ridden that very night.
The next morning, Anika’s eldest sister, Princess Elizabeth, decides it’s finally time to tell all she knows about the FAMILY CURSE.
