Ella, as a baby, was ‘blessed’ with a gift from a fairy–the gift of obedience. She must do whatever anyone tells her. Her mother’s eventual death results in her father remarrying. Ella’s new evil stepsisters find out about her curse, and are determined to make her miserable. Ella sets out on an adventurous quest to find Lucinda, who might be able to reverse the curse.
This book is great for those who love good old-fashioned fairy tales with an new and interesting spin. I also recommend it to those who love adventure and quests.
