According to the back cover of The Price of Scorn, Kae states this story was for readers young and old. I do think that's true to some degree; as in aimed towards the more "mature".
IMHO: I don't think certain aspects of The Price of Scorn are suitable to the younger crowd (HS and younger). There were parts which I wouldn't allow a teenager to read. For me, I wouldn't feel comfortable allowing my child to read about men forcing themselves upon a woman. It wasn't in graphic detail but there was enough presented to warrant the need for me to wait before I allow this into their hands.
With that said, I liked the Stepmother's backstory. We all knew she wasn't born despicable and Kae's insight into her history shed some light into why she was named the "Evil Stepmother".
After learning about everything she dealt with, do my feelings towards her change at all?
Nah, not really.
Just because your heart has been hardened by acts done against you, it doesn't justify the need to spread hatred onto others. But, that's just my opinion.
The concept of what lay beneath the Evil Stepmother's vile exterior was intriguing. We tend to judge people by their actions, without pausing to consider what made them that way.
Kudos to Ms. Wheeler for her imagination and her skill at crafting a tale that takes us beyond the Cinderella story. A remarkable read.
Did you ever wonder why Cinderella's Evil Stepmother was so vile? So mean?
Fourteen years after Prince Charming and Cinderella are crowned as Chalmers King and Queen, Cinderella, Pricilla and Esmeralda gather at their mother's deathbed.
Lady Hildegard Roche has nothing but resentment and scorn for the stepchild who culminates all that was stolen from her. Stunned silent, the sisters learn how tragedy shaped their mother into the woman she became. The question is: Can the sisters forgive her?
I have read the stories of the Princesses: Cinderella, Pricilla and Esmeralda. I never dreamed that there would be a story about their mom and step mama (the evil one). Didn't see that one coming and when it did, I wanted to read it! Wow. What a story. How much abuse and loss can one woman stand? It really tugged at the emotions. Twists and turns kept happening, none of them working in a good way for Hilda. More than once she wished for death. Betrayal every where she turned; it caused her to harden her heart; and become the unpleasant woman that she became. She didn't start out that way, but her father was the first one to treat her harshly and cruelly without any mercy. Yes, I did cry a few tears over this story. I guess you could call it a Dark Fairytale. One that caused Cinderella, Priclla and Esmeralda to come to an understanding of their own pain that she caused them. With understanding and compassion came some peace.
I was given a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
