Think Ever After with an underpinning of morality and faith, and the perfect spark of humor. Lisa J. Flickinger’s redo of the Cinderella story is entertaining and fresh.
Ella’s father is away on an extended military posting abroad, and his new wife has brought her two daughters, formerly unknown to her new husband, to live in the household. As the story goes, they mistreat Ella at every opportunity.
Ella has no way of contacting her father, until an officer shows up who has worked for him. But how can she contrive a way to convince him that she is the real daughter, and that her father’s estate is in jeopardy if left in the clutches of his new family? And what is this feeling that has arisen toward the man who has the power to step in and save her?
Oh, and the red slippers, brought along by Ella’s father’s emissary for his “only daughter.” Perfect. The mean stepsister claims them, then fabricates a long list of excuses and postponements to trying on the slippers, which are half the length of her foot. And in the end, whom do they fit? This is one of those stories that’s fun to read even though you know the ending. Or do you?
The truth is, the cover grabbed me first. It’s gorgeous, a more accurate rendering of a historical character than many I’ve seen on other historical fiction covers. Definitely a winner in my opinion.
I found the Ella novella to be engaging, and although it is based on a premise that good will win out, there is enough tension to keep me reading. I recommend this short book to all those who love fairy tales, especially those with a romantic bent.
