They were princesses that were never supposed to inherit the throne, but to live
happily ever after with their princes.
Everything changed when a mass slaughter took the lives of the
generation before, leaving an elderly king with no heirs, save them.
Felicia rules the kingdom with a heavy heart, separated from her long
term love to love a man who makes her choose; love or the throne.
Eva, the sickly but strong-hearted princess, and James, the navy commodore and trusted advisor of Felecia, no longer have to hide their
long term love affair.
Eva and James think they finally have peace after being separated for 15 years by Eva's arranged marriage: an alliance once made to help fortify the country.
Now, Felicia must choose her own love and happiness or the throne.
Will she disrupt the finally peaceful and relaxing lives of Eva and James to
have them take the throne?
Or will she choose to live in misery without
the man she loves; a man she cannot marry?
“The Uncertain Throne” makes us realize what we must do in the most desperate of times and realize our true self.
Not all of us would respond the same way; not all of us would become the same person or make the same choices we think we would make.
Suitable for ages 13+ up, the morals of this story transcend age and time.
