Audio Book 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.

    For me this is definitely a book for bed and not a road trip. The first part was hard to get into and boring. That being said, it is well written and the characters are very realistic. Jenny Sterling's performance was enjoyable to listen to. Not my favorite audiobook experience and has a bit of a depressing plot, but over all it is a good book. I'd say it was worth the two for one credit deal.
