It is 1860, and Robert Knight is praying. Destined to take over a struggling West Texas ranch, Robert has his work cut out for him. Despite knowing that his new ranch is vulnerable to Mexican rustlers and that a neighbor already despises him and his Christian values, Robert still holds one goal above all others: to find a wife—and quick. As Robert settles into life on the ranch, he intently watches from horseback one day as the first train full of dignitaries pulls into Haggard, Texas. All seems normal until he suddenly sees three hoodlums approach the train and drag a woman out against her will. Robert initiates a fierce gun battle where he eventually emerges the victor. After he takes the woman to the safety of his ranch, Robert soon realizes that he has not rescued just any woman. He has saved Elizabeth Abdullah from the claws of a radical group who want her dead. Unbeknownst to Robert, Elizabeth is facing an enormous duty: to marry a prince and become the mother of the next male regent of the island of Donoscia-este. In this historical tale, a future princess and her two sisters somehow find their lives intertwined with a young, adventurous West Texas cattle rancher who must rely on his faith—and God’s wisdom—to help him lead everyone in the right direction.

The central tale studied in Turandot’s Sisters, first published in 1993, is The Princess Who Can Not Solve the Riddle, AT 851. Other wisdom tales are surveyed to show that they are separate from the riddle tales in material and in spirit. Customs and beliefs concerning riddling and riddle contests are examined to see what motifs from the tales are taken from reality, leaving the rest to be either fantasy motifs or stylistic traits. The central tale AT 851 is analysed in detail to exhibit its obligatory and optional elements, a wealth of possibilities that enables it to adapt to a range of moods and to express a variety of ideas.

The Princess of the Light: Book One of the Saga of the Princesses of the Light by James McKenzie The Princess of the Light by James A. McKenzie is a "fantastical" ride through space among thousands of civilizations that achieved much, but never conquered the problem of greed. This is a story that could have taken place several thousand years ago, or could possibly take place several thousand years in the future. This ethereal tale began in the surface world of Sha'nia, whose great trading ship returned from the cosmos with unexpected cargo-a plague that was so communicable that even trained medical personnel were unaware of it until it was too late. In two days, nearly the entire population had died. Now 6,000 people were the beneficiaries of 50 billion. In the Royal Palace, only 25 survived, including Queen Anne and her four children-William, Elizabeth, Andrea, and Andrew. They knew they were safe with the resources to feed, clothe, and educate themselves. However, over time, a problem came to light-only 100 women and 5 men remained fertile-how would they restore their population?Now, join the Sha'nia in their adventurous travels to other civilizations, as they look for ways to keep their planet alive.
