The Ash Girl, a new take on the Cinderella story, whilst keeping the happy ending of original fairy tale it puts its own dark and disturbing spin on the plot.
In a big old house, Ashgirl lives huddled deep in the protection of an ashy hearth. With her mother dead and her father away, she lives with her stepmother and two stepsisters. When the invitation to the ball arrives from the prince, Ashgirl finds the strength to go with the help of her friends, some of whom come from unexpected places. She finds fleeting happiness in the arms of the Prince; to regain it, she discovers, she must fight the monsters who have insinuated their way into her heart and mind.
