The old couple had whirled into my life. I could never have seen then how large the whirling, how big the circles." In The Princess Gardener, Princess Eugenie swapped places with Alyssa, a farm girl of her exact likeness, and they both got what they had longed for, Eugenie a chance to work on the land and Alyssa an education. The second installment, The Alyssa Chronicle, sees the upcoming wedding of Arbuckle Beauregard the III which is to be a state event. Everything must be perfect. With the help of a magical couple, the girls must swap back in order to stop a royal plot to steal all the flowers of the land. Will Alyssa and Princess Eugenie's friendship and determination be enough to defend the farmers and gardeners of the kingdom? And will the girls succeed in getting back to their preferred places?
