The story begins in the Kingdom of Love, the day before the wedding of Prince Dignity and Princess Grace. But, the ominous Winds of Change came through the land, and everything changed. Prince Denial, the narcissistic cousin of Dignity, developed a devious plan to interfere with the marriage and future reign of this cherished couple.
Author Laura Grody takes the reader on an adventurous ride with her tale, Grace and Dignity: The Ark of the Sacred Scrolls. When Grace is told that Dignity was murdered, she reportedly died of a broken heart. Eventually, she is found to be alive – and if her death was a fabrication, was Dignity’s death a lie? Many characters are part of the tale, but each one’s characteristics is fittingly captured within his or her name. Metaphysical beliefs are cleverly intertwined within the tale. Princess Grace and Prince Dignity, as well as several other characters, have strong intuitive abilities; these are needed to restore the land. These beliefs are explained in the missing Sacred Scrolls.
Grace and Dignity: The Ark of the Sacred Scrolls by Laura Grody is a delightful romp in linguistics and puns. Even chapter titles are fun to read; some examples are “O Prince, Where Art Thou?”; “A Simple Twist of Faith”; and “A Perfect Brainstorm.” Not only is Ms. Grody an accomplished master of the English language, she is also a creative, engaging writer. She presents many metaphysical concepts in a refreshing and entertaining way. Let us hope this book is the beginning of other tales from this charming Kingdom.
