A Story for Lily, by Krystal Linder, earns the Literary Classics Seal of Approval
It may seem nonsensical that a short story would come recommended based upon a prologue. And of course, that's not actually the case here. But if you could recommend a book entirely on that premise, it would be this one. The short story within the pages of this little book is delightful, enchanting, inspiring and heartwarming. We love this short story. But when coupled with the back-story, the inspiration and the purpose behind it's inception, it takes on a much deeper and meaningful message.
Lily's kingdom is in grave danger of being destroyed by a dragon. Her father, the king, has decreed the person who kills this dragon may have any wish granted; even if that means he must relinquish his throne. Lily, seeking nothing in return, determines to kill the dragon herself. As she begins her quest she is joined by an unlikely ally. Together, along with her strong faith and a fierce determination, the two set out to do what no man before her has accomplished.
Every person, young and old, should read this book if only for the prologue. This book is a plea of sorts. But more than that, it is a message of strength, courage, love, and above all hope. Recommended for home and school libraries, and for use in clinical settings, A Story for Lily earns our Seal of Approval.
