Alinda of the Loch – The Story of Sleeping Beauty’s Daughter
Sleeping Beauty, the beloved fairy tale, is reawakened in this modern twist. Follow Alinda and the legendary Loch Ness monster in their journey through time to a decision that will tear at your heart.
Alinda of the Loch is a short-novel that tells the tale of Sleeping Beauty’s daughter. This is the first book by co-authors Oonagh Pope and Julie Brown, who happen to live across the globe from one another! Pope (Scotland) and Brown (US), are teachers who collaborated to create this modern fairytale.
This fairytale princess is asleep for hundreds of years to awaken in our time and discover what it takes to be a modern day “princess.” A new sleeping beauty and her companion, the Lock Ness Monster, adapt to our world in this story for all ages.
Pope and Brown traveled around the world to create a new kind of fairy tale for all to enjoy. Pope is a primary school teacher in England while Brown is a college professor in Santa Barbara, California. Their combined experience created a book that interweaves a traditional fairytale and contemporary influence. Parents, children, and even college students will find enjoyment in this tale of love, family, and self-empowerment.
