I enjoyed this version of Cinderella very much. It added depth to the story and characters. Dokey referred to the oldest written versions of the tale and discovered that Cinderella's father is actual alive in both of those versions, so that is where she gained the inspiration for her story.

I liked the way that magic and wishes were portrayed. I really liked the discussions on mourning and grief.

I would definitely read this again.
