Book Review: A Wish Made of Glass

Summary: Deep in a forest glade, the fey folk dance with Isidore, a young human child. Their kinship is the very fabric of her childhood. When her mother dies and her world darkens with sorrow, Isidore finds her belief in the fey folk wavering.
The love of her new step-sister, Blessing, proves an unexpected gift in her time of need. Yet even as their friendship blooms, Isidore begins to see that Blessing is everything she herself has always wanted to be, but is not. Jealousy grips Isidore as she watches this beautiful new sister steal away all she holds dear.
Driven to desperation, Isidore turns to the fey folk once more. She has only one wish to claim from them, one chance to make things right. But she must tread carefully. For wishes, like hearts, are easily broken. And obtaining the one thing she desires could mean destroying the one thing she truly needs.

Thoughts: Ever since we helped out with the cover reveal for this I've been dying to read this story! Isn't the cover just wonderful and eye grabbing? Very different, just like the tale it holds. Yes this is a Cinderella tale, no it is nothing like the original. Filled with a much more realistic take on selfishness, hurt, loneliness, loss; it had me writhing in agony over all the emotions spilling out of the pages! It was an enchanting, if short, read and a great (and sorely needed) retelling. Because I've always wondered, what if Cinderella wasn't perfect?

Content: None.
