The conflict between the old world and the new...between responsibility and freedom...between duty and love...
Princess Christianna, happier in jeans and a sweatshirt than in the formal life of European royalty, leaves university to travel to East Africa as a volunteer for the Red Cross. Determined to make a difference, she plunges into the dusty, bustling life of an international relief camp, and is anxious to keep her identity a secret from her fellow aid workers.
Dr. Parker Williams, who works alongside Christianna and shares her dedication to healing, has no idea who she is - but as violence approaches and invades the camp, and the pressures of her royal life beckon her home, her struggle for freedom takes an extraordinary turn.
By a simple twist of fate, in one shocking moment, Christianna's life is changed for ever - in ways she could never have foreseen.

I can really imagine this story as a Diva channel movie, with these type of prose and plots. So dramatist like the others which have been adapted into a movie on Diva channel. From the start to the end, it was kinda predictable and you kinda know how the story would end with a little bump and twist... enough to entertain as a light read. Unbelievable that there were many deaths in this book!
Thankfully, though it was still repetitive and long winded at times especially at the start, the old fashioned plots were entertaining enough for me to enjoy and finished reading it. A first after Legacy that I've enjoyed from Danielle Steel. It wasn't as rushed and the flow was just right except at the start where it dragged on and on about Cricky's responsibility to the throne, her father's staunch believe and her brother's freedom which took practically 1/3 of the book!
