Follows one man from ninth-century Russia to present-day America as he struggles to rescue a princess and her kingdom, find true love, and overcome the blackest of evil.
Orson Scott Card (ENDER'S GAME) weaves together late 20th-century Russian politics, fairy tales, and a coming of age story in ENCHANTMENT. While his parents are plotting the family's escape from Communist Russia, the ten-year-old Ivan discovers a sleeping princess. Even after his family managed to escape to the United States and he has grown, Ivan still recalls vividly that moment. Of course it was just a childish daydream--or was it?
