We first posted this review in 2013. As one of our most popular Novella Thursday posts we thought you would enjoy reading it again.
History is told from one person’s perspective. Sometimes they don’t get it right.
Ugly Stepsister Anna has wrongly been accused of being mean and evil. Now it is time she got the opportunity to tell her side of the story.
With Cinderella so perfect and wonderful, it is no wonder Anna feels ugly in comparison. Dealing with bullies, a grumpy mother and the death of her step-father, Anna is at her wits end.
When the Prince’s ball approaches, Anna is told she must find a husband to save the family fortune. Attending with her sisters, the sulky Prince Charming only has eyes for Cinderella.
With the burden of being the only one to unite her step-sister with the Prince, will Anna act as cupid? Or will she protect Cinderella from the arrogant Charming?
A charming twist to the story of Cinderella, told completely from the point of view of the Ugly Step-Sister.
What an interesting take on a classic fairy tale. This is Cinderella’s tale told from Anastasia’s point of view. As with life it’s a different story when someone else tells it, from Cinderella doing the cleaning to keep her mind off of her father to her dress arriving in tatters and not being ruined by her step mother.
