This book will make you cry. This is not a challenge, it is a
warning: You will cry. You will laugh, you will heal, and you will
hold your loved ones closer. You will be happier once you finish it
than when you first picked it up. You will cry.
This captivating story is my best seller when I speak at junior high
and high school assemblies all over the nation. You would think it
would be my teen books, but no, it is this one—Prince Tennyson—the
book about a ten-year-old girl who is trying to prove if God is real
Her dad died in Iraq the year before and now she wants to know if
she’ll ever see him again. Prince Tennyson was his nickname because
of how dashing he looked in his uniform—he was her handsome prince.
This is an endearing father-daughter story told through the eyes of a
ten-year-old. It is a story of overcoming trials, moving on, and
finding not only faith in yourself, but in a loving God as well.
May you enjoy every moment of it—and please keep tissues handy.
You will need them.
