Princess Anna, adopted by the king in her infancy and now a young woman, is intrigued by the world that lies beyond the lush, green hills of the kingdom. When she seeks to satisfy her curiosity, she falls under the influence of the Lowlanders and begins to resemble their haggard style. Never to let a child slip away that easily, the king follows her, and trades his life for hers in order to provide her with a way back home. Despite the king's sacrifice, the choice to return home is ultimately Anna's to make.

The underlying truth is unmistakable as Max has crafted this powerful story that will speak to all of the King's children and implore them to follow the path that leads home.

A heavy-handed metaphor about the temptations of evil, Lucado creates a terribly scary, and indeed, almost evil story, with its vicious message that the only safe place for girls is cloistered.

A curious princess, a dutiful knight and a king willing to make the ultimate sacrifice for his daughter all play a key role in Lucado's original fairy tale about finding—and straying from—the right path.
