A Cinderella story about PTSD
- Katherine "I'm the managing editor of the Fantasy Literature blog. Life's too short to read bad books!"
One of the Best books offered on Audible
interesting, thought-provoking, brilliant
I loved the feel of it, the overall sense of realness WW1 brings to the story.
the accents, if you are not a British citizen than the rhythm of the dialog wouldn't be present as vividly.
to avoid any spoilers, I would just say that the entire journey of hard won Freedom was very moving and a very dear concept.
This story is a great retelling of Cinderella, with WW1 as a back drop. That said it is very difficult to say you can't see the ending coming... but this is definitely a book that proves, it's not the destination but the journey that matters. You will enjoy a new landscape as you travel down a fresh path into an old tale. It may even open your eyes to the thought that Fairy Tales may come in, at first glance, ordinary packages.
