What if everyone planned for a future you choose not to live?
I’ve been a reading jag lately – looking for “Feminist Fantasy” books. Fortunately, this appears to be a growing genre, and “Stepsister” fits the bill perfectly. The story begins where “Cinderella” ends – the beautiful sister gets the Prince, a castle, a happily-ever-after.
But, what happened to the two “ugly stepsisters” of the story.
This is where “Stepsister” takes a different turn, creating an alternative story for the two sisters, Octavia and Isabelle. They pale in comparison to the always kind, sweet, long-suffering and beautiful Ella. They have made themselves into the kind of woman society demands they be, at the cruel command of their over-bearing mother. Yet, that doesn’t fit for Isabelle anymore.
As fate and chance fight over the plight of the “ugly stepsisters” Isabelle tries to save her family, find her way and create a new life. She fights for her dignity inch-by-inch, with no help from anyone, until an old friend returns to the village.
All stories are about change, and “Stepsister” shows us that even when we are judged to be one thing, we can always find a way to honestly access our own power to find our dreams.
