The tale of Cinderella has been retold countless times. But what you know is not the true story. Sarah Prineas’s bold fairy-tale retelling is a dark and captivating world where swords are more fitting than slippers, young shoemakers are just as striking as princes, and a heroine is more than ready to rescue herself before the clock strikes midnight.Pin has no recollection of who she is or how she got to the Godmother’s fortress. She only knows that she is a Seamstress, working day in and out to make ball gowns fit for fairy tales. But she longs to forsake her backbreaking servitude and dares to escape with the brave young Shoemaker.Pin isn’t free for long before she’s captured again and forced to live the new life the Godmother chooses for her—a fairy-tale story, complete with a charming prince—instead of finding her own happily ever after.When the glass slipper just doesn’t fit . . .
Why I am Waiting?
“Ash & Bramble” by Sarah Prineas in a new and very interesting take on the story of Cinderella. With all the Cinderella hype right now with the new Disney movie, I am really looking forward to this unique take on the classic fairytale. The story of Cinderella has come a long way from the Grimm brothers. To find how a fairy godmother may manipulate the story to create a fairytale rather than the girl having the true fairytale is going to make for a very interesting story.
