Book
SAMUEL ADAMSON
A dark fairy tale about grief, rebellion and power, The Light Princess tells the story of prince and a princess from opposing kingdoms, both of whom have lost their mothers. Unable to cry, Althea became light with grief, floated and was locked away, while Digby became so heavy-hearted that he could never smile and trained as a warrior. One day, Digby declares war and Althea is forced out of hiding. But, in defiance of her father, she escapes only to encounter the solemn prince on contested land. Beside a lake the warring heirs begin a passionate and illicit affair. But for Althea to find real love, she must first confront the world’s darkness and face her own deepest fears.

THE STORY

SYNOPSIS

The princess lost her mother and in an attempt to reach for her in the heavens loses her gravity and the ability to cry. Her father has become a cold-hearted man after the loss of his wife and only son Alexander. The princess is called Althea and her country Lagobel becomes at war with the neighboring Sealand. When Althea escapes Dagobel she ends up in 'The Wilderness', a nomansland that separates Lagobel and Sealand. There she meets Sealand's prince, Digby who is unable to smile. The two fall in love, but soon after that they get into a fight about Digby's old-fashioned ideas of marriage and motherhood.

Althea's father undertakes several attempts to regain his daughter's gravity, concluding that love is the cure. He hides her in his dungeon before an arranged marriage, but Althea manages to escape. She flees to the lake that has dried out. Digby decides to break the dam so the water can flow back into the lake. He almost gets killed, causing Althea to cry and she therefore regains her gravity. The two get married and live happily ever after.
