Godmother: The Secret Cinderella StoryGodmother: The Secret Cinderella Story by Carolyn Turgeon

My rating: 2 of 5 stars

This book wasn't quite what I expected ... which is a good thing, quite honestly. Purchased on a whim at discount, I expected a brand X little palate-cleanser.

At first, there was a bit too much fantasy for my taste. (I like reality with a hint of fantasy, as I've mentioned previously. The swap does not appeal to me in the least.) But the names were pronounceable, so I troopered on!

This is the tale of Cinderella as told by her fairy godmother: an aging woman who works in a bookstore in New York City. The story is heart breaking, but lovely in a sense.

I don't know how to classify it. I'm glad I read it, not sure I would recommend it ...
