This is a cute story filled with magic, romance, hopes and dreams. I enjoyed the characters and could *feel* their problems. I really felt sorry for Ash. All that he has endured from his step brothers and family. His continued positive attitude and happy face surprised me at times. I guess it just took years for him to accept his lot and find the good in everything. I commend him. Princess Elle was a surprise. Her irritation for the castle, her duties and shockingly the “airs” that she didn’t put on. I guess the grass always does look greener on the other side no matter what the situation.
This line below spoken between the pair slay-ed me.
“Don’t look at me!
No one is supposed to see me like this”
“I’m great at being nobody”
What Ash is really saying is “don’t worry I’m used to being invisible and have no one to tell” as well as trying to alleviate her worries and make her feel better. So heartbreaking and lovely at the same time.
This is a first time author for me. She did a wonderful job. The story flowed and she made me care about the characters. I love that it’s filled with a good vs evil theme throughout the whole book.
