I like to be surprised by a book, even though I may know what to expect of certain characters or the general pacing, etc. This book was all right, but absolutely no surprises at all.

Fortunata's father was once a celebrated shoe maker, but after the death of her mother the magic has left his work. Facing starvation, they must travel to places where her father's shoes are not known so that he will have a chance to sell them, as his recent creations have been laughable at best. Traveling swindlers steal their donkey and make Fortunata and her father little more than slaves, advertising her as a prophetess and forcing her to give a fortune for the prince which puts Fortunata and her father in grave danger. Will Fortunata find true love? Um, well, as I said, there are really no surprises to be had here.
