Today’s feature: £3.08 (contemporary fiction) “Philippine Princess” by Emily Tacrayon
Emily was born in the Philippines and, as a young girl, had always dreamed of being a princess.
As she grew older and wiser, she decided being a princess was just a dream and instead, trained as a nurse. After qualifying as a midwife, she travelled to the UK to work. Emily worked 12 hour shifts in a care home for the elderly which was hard. The pay was much better than any work in her own country.
Far from her family and friends, she finds life hard, especially when she receives some devastating news about her brother.
Emily has a great deal of inner strength when dealing with work and financial problems. Through all the problems she makes sure she enjoys her new life. Her new found friends are a great support.
Emily knows she will never be the fairy-tale princess of her childhood dreams. What she will discover is she is still able to feel like a princess.
