As a long-time fan of the Fairy Tale Novels I was excited to read this story of Andrew and Regina's courtship. I was not disappointed. Our Fairy Tale Romance is a beautiful real-life modern fairy tale. I recommend it highly to any fan of the Fairy Tale Novels and to any young Catholic in that period of waiting before his or her vocation comes to fulfillment. Loved the pictures throughout and how it was told from both Andrew and Regina's perspectives!

This book is a very sweet story about the author and his wife (author Regina Doman) and their courtship and eventual marriage. It is a real-life fairy tale, and it made me wish for my own prince in disguise! Great story, well-written and interesting. I like the addition of the pictures as well!

As a seminarian, one is always in constant discernment about WHERE God wants one to serve. Personally for me, this book served as a great guide to what courtship and marriage is, in a Catholic POV. Even when I'm in the Seminary, I can relate with Andrew's calling to marriage because this is also how I felt my calling. Many doors were closed to me as well, everything seemed as though I were being pushed towards a calling to serve through the priesthood. For a long time, I pondered the question "What is marriage?", because even when I knew what was (in logical terms) I never knew WHAT it was. But I understand that marriage is like the priesthood, it is the calling of two people, who together, are called to serve, know, praise and love God through a giving of one's entire self to the other person, at the same time giving one's entire self to God. It's a calling to form a family and lead that family towards holiness. It is so similar to the priesthood, and just as beautiful in its own way. I recommend this for all single youth discerning their vocation, for young couples who are on the right path or in need of a good direction, and all seminarians and aspirants to the religious life who want to know more about marriage. God bless Andrew and Regina for their work in calling others to holiness through their example!
