Glass Slippers: A Cinderella Retelling
Before the death of her mother and her father's new marriage, Clara's life was easy, but after? It most certainly was not.
From her duties as the eldest sibling, her responsibilities as a young lady, and the need to make a good impression on her peers and betters, Clara is stretched thin.
Throw in complications in the form of her stepmother, her ill brother, a sorcerer she owes a debt to, a finishing school she must either avoid or find a way to survive, and a series of balls she's required to go to by law, and Clara is close to breaking from the stress of trying to find a solution to it all. If she manages to come through unscathed it will be nothing short of a miracle.
However, not all is as it seems.
With the appearance of a handsome stranger who keeps stumbling into her path and more than a little help along the way from magical fae and her younger siblings, Clara's quest to fix everything might just go from a supposed lost cause to a fairytale adventure.
The only question left is if that adventure turns into a happy ending for her, or everyone but her.
