Review Text

This retelling, with claborations, of the story of Cind??lla has the feathery, lightsome quality of Eleanor Farjeon's other writings and bide for favor from even those most addicted to the original. A long story with many chapters, it begins with a full detailing of the injustices suffered by Ella (the Cinder was added for ridicule) at the hands of her horrible stepmother and her two horrible stepsisters, Araminta and Arethusa. Then there is the Granny who turns into a fairy godmother and the rest is history. A delightful narrative with full descriptions and a breathless suspense brightly revives an old romance.
