I first read The Souls of Her Feet as a "blook" -- a book published as a series of blog posts (a modern twist on the Charles Dickens-style serial stories-turned-novels). So when I bought the e-book, I already knew Ms. Caven's version of the story (along with the dozens of versions I've read as a mother of girls and a former kindergarten teacher). It's hard to comprehend, then, how this book can STILL be a page-turner when you've heard it a million times and you already know how everything turns out. But I found myself reading and reading and reading ("just one more chapter then I'll stop... ok, just one more... ok now REALLY just one more...")
The author has created well-imagined characters that are funny and real, and a little over-the-top, yet recognizable and human and likable (even the rude ones). And we know the good guys will prevail but we like hearing the story play out anyway. And we like the feel of that budding romance. And we want Ashley to have a loving home. And we love that her fairy godmother is a "hairy god-whatever" that shares her shoe size and fortunately is a cross-dresser so he can provide her with the perfect pair of heels for the ball.
I think this story line never gets old the way that Pride and Prejudice never gets old. It gives hope to the underdogs of the world. And that's my only explanation for why I can read it again and again and again.
