Orphaned Molly can’t quite believe her eyes. Overnight, a magnificent palace has mysteriously appeared outside her window.
What she can’t see is a king walking into the palace library to consult an ancient book. The ‘chosen one’ is revealed.
The next day, on Molly’s ninth birthday, she receives a special invitation to visit the palace. Molly meets the king and is given new shoes. She is also invited to join his large family.
Molly learns that life in the palace comes with a mission: to deliver the king’s magic tokens to the village.
The tokens lead her to a nondescript box at the post office where she receives a cryptic note. Alarmingly, it appears to predict imminent misfortune. Molly is soon caught off-guard when her new shoes are stolen. Molly’s integrity is tested when she comes face to face with the shoe thief.
One question remains when she returns to the palace. Why does the king want to adopt her?
The ancient book reveals that Molly was chosen from the beginning of time. She would be the first from her village to be offered adoption.
Molly accepts the king’s offer and discovers profound joy belonging to the royal family.
