Thrush has written a humorous and magical adaptation of Cinderella for a modern day young adult audience.
Princess Ava has been “happily” married to her Prince for 25 years now. Investigative journalist Jill Graham, divorced herself, wonders if there really is a happily-ever-after and arranges an interview with Princess Ava to see just how her life is 25 years on.
The story jumps back and forward in time as we are told, by Ava, the romantic and somewhat embellished story of Ava’s meeting with Prince Kellan and their eventual marriage plus the real story of how the events unfolded all those years ago.
This is a timely story for today’s young adults and not so young as we spend hours posting perfect lives on Instagram and facebook. Perfect photos, perfect children and perfect holidays at times we never see the real person. Princess Ava was giving her public what she thought they wanted to hear.
Princess Ava is a very unlikeable character. She is shallow and selfish always worrying about her appearance. I found myself being annoyed with her.
I loved Agnes, the gluten intolerant drunken fairy Godmother. She was brash and coarse or “direct” as she preferred to be called.
Agnes responded, “I’m just trying to get back on the wagon. That darned wagon is slippery.”
“She said you were coarse and frumpy,” Princess Ava reminded her. “I am coarse and frumpy,” Agnes admitted. “Although, I prefer to think of it as direct and comfortable.”
I enjoyed this magical HEA story. The characters were real and the atmosphere was light and I was intrigued throughout to see if Ava really did get her happily-ever-after.
With thanks to D.Thrush for my gifted copy to read and review.

D. Thrush uses her story-telling magic to weave the Cinderella tale everyone knows together with what actually happened to Ava and the Prince, and those dire consequences twenty-five years later. But there’s plenty of humor, romance, good sense, and wisdom along the way until Ava and her Prince Charming finally recognize that they may not be living a real fairy tale but what they have is pretty wonderful anyway... and then they set off with their kids and the reporter to save the world.
