Adelaide is the “Cinderella” of this story, the wealthy daughter of the court physician who becomes a servant after her father’s death. This story extends the Cinderella tale so we have the usual Prince, but we also have his brother. We have Adelaide’s best friend as well, and don’t forget the fairy godmother.
The story starts off very stereotypical Cinderella, but adds some unique elements as we go. This is a YA novella, so it is kind of short, but the story is action packed along the way. I enjoyed the book for a brief, somewhat comical diversion from other stories.
