Everyone loves a good fairy tale. In Island Girl: A Triumph of the Spirit, author Norma Joyce Dougherty shares how in 1970, God led a poor, young farm girl from Prince Edward Island, Canada to live out a real-life fairy tale on the world stage. "I became a world traveler and overnight success as Miss Dominion of Canada and contestant in the Miss World, Miss Universe, Queen of the Pacific, and semi-finalist in Miss International. I found fame and fortune," she explains, "but I lost my home, my self, and a sense of belonging. It took many years to find 'me' again." Women of every age, every stage, and every face will relate with her 'identity crisis'-a crisis that is all too common in this post-modern era as women search for authentic validation. Teen girls will be particularly inspired by her struggle to live by the motto: "Beauty is as beauty does."
