Have you ever wondered what happened to Cinderella after she married the prince? Have you ever asked yourself if it was really "happy ever after?" Actually, in this Victorian melodrama, it's not. 35-years-old Emily Fox-Seton, quite penniless and a little lonely, saves herself from becoming an old maid by agreeing to a marriage proposal from the marquess of Walderhurst, thus becoming "one of the richest Marchionesses in England". She is naïve, kind and good. She doesn't believe that people are really willing to hurt her, but why are all these strange accidents happening?This novel is divided into 2 parts. The first, "The Making Of A Marchioness" tells about the odd courtship of Emily and lord Walderhurst. The second part, "The Methods of Lady Walderhurst", most of the book, tells what happens after… This adult fairy tale, which, by mistakes, becomes a realistic novel, is a captivating book.I wish you all a wonderful reading.
Excellent book and amazing narration by Carolyn Driggs. Carolyn's reading was one of the best I've heard in a very long time. She could change voices in a snap and was just perfect for this story. She should read all the English novels.
Great reader and honestly a very good story. It should be made into a movie for sure. But that being said, it's not a happy go lucky story like I had expected, so I was taken by surprise at the darker moments of the book and wished at the time that I had chosen a happier read. BUT it really is a great book and I recommend! And they all live happily ever after ;)
