Heart of a Princess

Eek! I’m so excited to share with you Heart of Princess by Hannah Currie. It is the second novel in the YA series, The Daughters of Peverell. Anyone who knows me could tell you I am NOT a princess-y girl and one of my least favorite colors is pink. But I’m in love with this book and Princess Alina. The best books have heroines who I’d love to have as friends, and Alina would definitely make that list–even if she wore head to toe pink!

Keep reading for more information about the book, purchase links, and my full review.

About the Book:

To the watching world, Princess Alina has it all—maids to serve her, a kingdom to revere her, a prince to marry her, and a wardrobe filled with enough frills, flounces, and shades of pink to rival a flower shop. But behind the smiles and designer clothes, Alina has a secret. She’s barely holding it together.


After a moment of panic almost ends in tragedy, Alina is sent to a refuge far from the palace to recuperate. Her family claims it’s for her own good but—faced with cows, knife-beaked ducks, and far too many of her own insecurities—Alina is pretty sure it will kill her first. And Joha Samson, infuriating man that he is, will laugh as it does.
Only there’s more to Joha than she realizes, and more to herself too. When the time comes to make a stand, will she find the courage?

My Thoughts:

Heart of a Princess by Hannah Curie is book two in The Daughters of Peverell Series. I will be honest and say I have Heart of a Royal of my TBR, but I haven’t had the chance to read it yet. However, that did not diminish the brilliance of Alina’s story for me. I absolutely adored Alina and Joha’s story from beginning to end. I literally could NOT put this book down and am guilty of reading into the early hours of the morning to finish it.

Alina is a complicated princess (not that I know very many–or any), but she grows on you quickly. Her outward appearance and behavior may be made to look perfect, but it is a vulnerable, hurting little girl who lives underneath. And I think in today’s world, Alina’s struggles of trying to conform to what she thinks the people of Peverell want is incredibly relevant. How often do we try to conform to what the world wants?

Alina’s journey of healing and search for peace is restorative, a breath of fresh air. I loved her desire to find purpose in everyday tasks and her willingness to expose her weaknesses to learn more about herself and The Rebel’s beliefs. Peverell was blessed to have a princess with such a heart!

And Joha. He may not be your typical hero, with his snarky comments and bushy beard–BUT, ladies, he is amazing! Although not known for tact, his heart is in the right place. And I always love it when a hero can bring the heroine’s best qualities to the surface by believing in her (even if no one else does!). 

Alina and Joha’s story has many ups, downs, and a few twists. You won’t want to close the book until you reach the end–trust me. It was worth forfeiting sleep to finish! The warm fuzzy feelings and cheek-stretching smiles you experience will fuel you to the end. Ah, I miss Alina and Joha already. 

Any fan of Christian young adult fiction will enjoy this book, especially if you are a fan of royalty (who isn’t?).

I was given a copy of this book by the publisher with no expectation of a positive review. All opinions are my own.

I do hope you grab Heart of Princess on pre-order, so you can enjoy Alina and Joha’s story as much as I did!
