Summary
Gregory Maguire spins a tale based on Cinderella. Iris Fisher, her mother, and her mentally simple sister Ruth work as servants in the 17th-century Dutch home of an artist. Iris' mother ingratiates herself with the painter's patron and later marries him, making plain-looking Iris and Ruth stepsisters of the man's lovely daughter, Clara. -- Description by Dawn Towery
