I almost feel this book could have been written for me. As a little girl I wanted to be a fairy, not Cinderella who met the handsome Prince. That was probably because I didn't want to be scrubbing kitchen floors - a task I'm not keen on now! No, I definitely wanted to be the wand - holder with the ability to grant wishes. My next admission is my love of books, so working in a bookshop, is my idea of heaven.
I loved this story, so beautifully told. I felt really sorry for Lillian trapped in the world of humans and having to hide her wings. What about all those bothersome feathers? After all, she wasn't really wicked, she made a mistake, it could happen to anyone. I liked the characters, George the bookstore owner, Veronica the customer who Lillian helps to find the man of her dreams. Even the landlord, the grandson who inherits the building and sells the property to a developer.
I liked the way the author gives the reader a choice at the end. To believe in the fairytale or is Lillian just an eccentric old lady.
