Fantasy and reality come together as Carrie Adams moves with her family from Washington to Wisconsin leaving behind her beloved home, best friend, and someone else infinitely more precious to her. The change and the pain are more than Carrie can bear.
So in her daydream world Carrie becomes Princess Caritas, a spirited heroine who battles armed forces to protect her family. Filled with courageous escapes, bonds of loyalty, blossoming friendships, and a devoted bodyguard, the world of Princess Caritas is the ideal getaway from real life. But this imaginary distraction is only a temporary fix to a secret loss that both Caritas and Carrie must face.
Back in real life, homeschooled Carrie hides herself in the fiction of Tolkien and the poetry of Chesterton. She questions God about why he took so much away from her. Attempts to befriend her are largely unsuccessful. It seems that the only real comfort Carrie can get is from a mysterious heart-shaped locket.
What does this locket mean to Carrie? Who gave it to her? Whose picture is inside it? Enter into both stories and discover the locket's secret.
