What happens when Cinderella is so painfully shy that she cannot bear the idea of attending the royal ball? Or when the slipper fits . . . but on the wrong girl? What happens when Cinderella is determined to oust an imposter prince from her rightful throne? Or when she is a cendrillon miner working from a space station orbiting a cthonian planet? What happens when Cinderella, a humble housemaid, is sent with a message for a prisoner trapped in a frightening fairy circus?
Here is Cinderella as you have never met her before, wearing glass slippers and off on unforgettable adventures!
After her terrifying experience there several years ago, the one place young housemaid Tilly longs to avoid is Bromley’s Circus. But when kindly Lord Hollingberry begs her to deliver a message to the mysterious Moon Master hidden away among the circus dwellers, Tilly can’t refuse . . . and finds herself ensnared in a web of enchantment cast by the loathsome Mrs. Carlisle and her beautiful goddaughter.
Answer: I would not like to meet Laureldina, the step-mother character, because she is one of those people who never gets angry. By that, I mean she never displays anger, but smiles a sort of venomous smile and pretends to like you while entirely undoing you in the back of her eyes. Her personality works well, if briefly, in The Windy Side of Care because she proves a foil to Alis and I could just sense how awful it’d be to end up having her for a … well goodness. I almost spoiled it.
