Summary
Gregory Maguire, critically acclaimed author of Wicked, returns with his eagerly anticipated second novel. Using a dazzling reincarnation of the Cinderella story set in 17th century Holland, Maguire deftly weaves together stories of inner and outer beauty. Iris is a plain but intelligent young girl. Forced to flee England with her recently widowed mother, Margarethe, and her older sister, she finds herself swept into a life that becomes a legend. Arriving destitute, the family becomes employed in the home of a wealthy tulip merchant. Margarethe is hired as the housekeeper and Iris as a companion to the merchant's stunningly beautiful but troubled daughter. When the merchant's wife dies, Margarethe seizes the moment, and a wicked stepmother is born. Narrated with spirit and warmth by Jenny Sterlin, Gregory Maguire's vision of Cinderella is a sweeping story of love and deception, where a ball, a handsome prince and the betrayal of a daughter can lead to everyone living happily ever after
Summary
Gregory Maguire spins a tale based on Cinderella. Iris Fisher, her mother, and her mentally simple sister Ruth work as servants in the 17th-century Dutch home of an artist. Iris' mother ingratiates herself with the painter's patron and later marries him, making plain-looking Iris and Ruth stepsisters of the man's lovely daughter, Clara. -- Description by Dawn Towery
