An unlikely situation pits two competitors against each other to find a “great treasure”, along the way they are met with challenges, and in the end learn something important about themselves before living happily ever after.
But in this new spin on the classic fairytale, the two main characters’ “happily ever after” includes a same-sex marriage.
The book, ‘The Princes and The Treasure’, was written by a University of the Pacific professor.
The story by Jeffrey Miles follows the adventures of Gallant and Earnest, who are tasked to find Princess Elena, who was taken by an old woman.
Gallant and Earnest are told to find “the greatest treasure in the land”, with the goal of one of them finding and marrying Princess Elena.
However, the two fall in love with each other, get married and live happily ever after.
And that Princess who needed saving? She does the saving.
Miles’ book is being added to more and more libraries, including Sacramento Public Library, and is available on Amazon.
