A glass castle shatters as easily as a glass house—all it takes is one stone.

Prince Edward has known this all of his life, and taken staunch measures to ensure he doesn’t give the public any reason to pick up their rocks. Or torches. Or pitchforks. As a twenty-two-year-old in line to ascend the throne, he lives more like a cloistered monk than his college-aged peers. Restraint is the tone of his life, resilience the theme.

That is, until he meets a young woman who couldn’t care less about his title—unless she’s poking fun at it. Charlotte Everly grew up a stone’s throw away from the royal family’s summer house, but her life was, and is, entirely different from the prince’s.

They clash at each turn, disagree on every topic, and bear a general contempt for one another. Until . . .

One night, accompanied by one proposal, leads to one lapse in judgment . . .

Results in a nationwide scandal neither of them will escape.

Angie’s Thoughts:

Glass Castle Prince is a contemporary love story based on a non-conventional relationship. One is a prince, soon to be king and another the groundskeeper’s daughter. Her parents thought they could shelter her from the frivolous lifestyle of being privileged so they forbade her to go 50 yards within the castle. More than they knew she was going to be a lot closer than that.

I love Charlotte even though at times she drove me crazy with how much of an airhead she was in certain situations. Girl I know you’re inexperienced but that doesn’t make you clueless. You went to college for crying out loud. Ugh.. I enjoyed how strong she was despite the latter. She was stubborn and level headed (at times). Her banter with Edward was a long-awaited laughter that I needed. She kept that boy on his toes and it was fun reading about it.

Edward is strong. Stubborn at times and quiet. He doesn’t voice what’s on his mind like Charlotte does. While she’s outspoken and honest. He’s silent and broody. There were so many times I had wished he would just say how he felt instead of all this tension between the two. By the time I finished the book I never wished harder.

Before I knew it the story was over. I was at “The End” with still so many questions. I felt like the book was rushed and where I wish we had more insight into their relationship was more focused on the angst and tension between them. I needed a hundred more epilogues but realistically just 2 more. I know we are supposed to leave some ending of books to our imagination but with this one, I needed more.

Overall I thoroughly enjoyed Glass Castle Prince. It was a fun and fast read even with all the questions I still have. I’m hoping in the future Nicole Williams will write a novella for them so I can get my closure.

The Verdict:
