So I’ll be honest, I never knew that the original Grimm fairytale of Cinderella involved the stepsisters cutting off part of their feet in order to make the glass slipper fit. So when this book started off that way, it was quite a bit of a shock.
I started off hesitant while reading this book. I had a hard time reconciling it with the Disney version of Cinderella that everyone knows. But I’m glad I kept going. Watching Isabell grow into the woman that she was meant to be and not the woman that her mother wanted her to be, which is inspiring. It was incredible to watch her rise up against her circumstances and turn her life around into the future that she had always wanted and had buried so deep inside for so long.
I truly hope this author has more books that are similar to this one!
