"ONCE UPON A TIME" IS TIMELESS Young, beautiful, and wealthy, Emma Pennington is accustomed to a very comfortable life. Although war rages abroad, she hardly feels its effect. She and her mother travel from their home in Britain to the family estate in Belgium, never imagining that the war could reach them there. But it does. Soon Emma finds herself stranded in a war-torn country, utterly alone. Enemy troops fight to take over her estate, leaving her with no way to reach her family, and no way out. With all of her attention focused on survival and escape, Emma hardly expects to find love. But the war will teach her that life is unpredictable, people aren't always what they seem, and magic is lurking everywhere.

I've never read the Frog Prince, but I'm sure I know it
wasn't as interesting as this. Emma, who was pampered all her life, and
Jack, who is serving the army for his country, both get up with the
miseries and casualties of the war. Through hardships, they learn to
accept and love each other despite their statuses, education, and their
strange abilities. I found it interesting how Jack had abilities, but
it is based on the Frog Prince, after all. His flexibility with water
and other magical abilities were just plain awesome. Awesome. <3
