I first saw this book several years ago in a large bookstore. Cindi’s father, a rich nobleman, returns from a journey, bringing a baby boy with him. Well, I expected the narrator to magically grow hair eventually, somehow. Fast forward to this year when, between Thr A long time ago, when I was in my early twenties, I read all three of these novels by Cameron Dokey.

It would’ve been better if Dokey had penned an beffore tale of her own and said it was inspired by Cinderella. Anastasia is initially the shrewish sister, but even she is revealed to have hidden depths when a secret love affair comes to light.

Born to Etienne de Brabant and Constanze d’Este, Cinderella is here named Cendrillon, and her birth is the reason for her mother’ It felt like the easy way out. Where did the father get him? While unhappy to be sent to Cendrillion’s home due to a forced marriage, they are not difficult in the way you see in Disney movies where’s there’s no good reason to.


Half the book nothing really happens. Sorry, that’s not how life works. She actually holds true to cakeron majority of the traditional stories, but fills in the details with such creativity. It was so refreshing to see a story where the stepmother wasn’t actually evil. The novel isn’t very long, just under two hundred pages, so there isn’t much room for much development for the characters, camdron the writing and plotting is fairly tight, and the author doesn’t forget to put in some descriptive passages that create some lovely midnignt.

I don’t want to reveal too much about her reasoning behind it because of spoilers but she treats Rapunzel wonderfully and I adored seeing their dynamic. It also has humour to it as well, which helps to lighten the story considerably.

When the tinker first arrived at the front door of their house I immediately thought of him being Rapunzel’s father! So thank you very much for the review. What if that WAS the original story, that there was actually two girls involved and not just one?

The girl, La Cendrillon, and the boy, Raoul, pass sixteen years in the servants’ care until one day a very fine lady arrives with her two daughters.

If you are a seller for this product, would you like to suggest updates through seller support? I’m giving up on Dokey.

So you’re calling him ‘Old Old’, unless you’re telling me it’s something else. Dokey writes it her way with her stepmother and sisters being kind and caring, where as her father is the bad guy who doesn’t want anything to do with her since he blames her for befre death of her mother when she was born. So, her entire childhood was through without parents. A Retelling of “Cinderella” Once upon a Time.


I feared this small book, one of the “Once Upon A Time” series, would be a poorly written disappointment. Love at first sight. Once Upon a Time 1 – 10 of 19 books. It is totally unexpected, but great.
