Thank you so much to Heather for joining us today and for allowing me to be a part of this blog tour. I loved her book The Temple, and my post will be up on the 25th.  Finding the Princess: One Little Girl’s Dress Heather Marie Adkins             I wanted to be a princess.             I mean, what little girl doesn’t at some point?  The tiara, the dress, the magic wand, the prince…             But for most of us, being a real princess just can’t be a reality.  Princes, after all, are few and far between—plus, the royals tend to keep it amongst themselves (ew?).  So, to compensate, we play pretend princesses at Halloween.             Don’t get me wrong; I love Disney movies.  But that’s just not the kind of princess I was going for at eleven years old.  Donning a bright blue Cinderella dress or a yellow, red, and blue Snow White gown just wouldn’t cut it for me.  It’s such an in-between age—too young for Historical Romances with… Read more »
