Cinderella as a character who makes her own choices.

I like adult fairy tales, or rather, adult reworkings of fairy tales. This was particularly well-done, with plenty of Dutch history (tulips and commericialism and all), lots of art information, and an engaging story with just a bit of a twist at the end. An enjoyable read.

Heads Up: This is *nothing* like "Wicked". Different style, different type of story, different points to be made. So, don't let your opinion of "Wicked", either way, hold you back from this. Lightweight but still some good story-telling skills shown here.
