Amazon book description: When Eleanor Brice unexpectedly wins the heart of Gregory Desmarais, Crown Prince of Cartheigh, she's sure she's found her happily-ever-after.
Unfortunately, Prince Charming has a loose grip on his temper, a looser grip on his marriage vows, and a tight grip on the bottle. Eight years of mistreatment, isolation and clandestine book learning hardly prepare Eleanor for life at Eclatant Palace, where women are seen, not heard. According to Eleanor's eavesdropping parrot, no one at court appreciates her unladylike tendency to voice her opinion. Before the ink dries on her marriage proclamation Eleanor realizes that she loves her husband's best friend, former soldier Dorian Finley.
The glass slipper is unique to Charles Perrault 's version and its derivatives; in other versions of the tale it may be made of other materials in the version recorded by the Brothers Grimm , German : Aschenbroedel and Aschenputtel , for instance, it is gold and in still other tellings, it is not a slipper but an anklet, a ring, or a bracelet that gives the prince the key to Cinderella's identity. In Rossini's opera " La Cenerentola " "Cinderella" , the slipper is replaced by twin bracelets to prove her identity. In the Finnish variant The Wonderful Birch the prince uses tar to gain something every ball, and so has a ring, a circlet, and a pair of slippers.
Some interpreters, perhaps troubled by sartorial impracticalities, have suggested that Perrault's "glass slipper" pantoufle de verre had been a "squirrel fur slipper" pantoufle de vair in some unidentified earlier version of the tale, and that Perrault or one of his sources confused the words; however, most scholars believe the glass slipper was a deliberate piece of poetic invention on Perrault's part. The disguised Cinderella's 'fur slipper' was of unique appeal to the Prince who sought her thereafter through sexual congress a variety of sources including Joan Gould.
The translation of the story into cultures with different standards of beauty has left the significance of Cinderella's shoe size unclear, and resulted in the implausibility of Cinderella's feet being of a unique size for no particular reason. Humorous retellings of the story sometimes use the twist of having the shoes turn out to also fit somebody completely unsuitable, such as an amorous old crone.
In Terry Pratchett 's Witches Abroad , the witches accuse another witch of manipulating the events because it was a common shoe size, and she could only ensure that the right woman put it on if she already knew where she was and went straight to her. In "When the Clock Strikes" from Red As Blood , Tanith Lee had the sorcerous shoe alter shape whenever a woman tried to put it on, so it would not fit.
Cinderella's stepmother and stepsisters in some versions just the stepsisters and, in some other versions, a stepfather and stepsisters conspire to win the prince's hand for one of them.

In the German telling, the first stepsister fits into the slipper by cutting off a toe, but the doves in the hazel tree alert the prince to the blood dripping from the slipper, and he returns the false bride to her mother. The second stepsister fits into the slipper by cutting off her heel, but the same doves give her away. In many variants of the tale, the prince is told that Cinderella can not possibly be the one, as she is too dirty and ragged. Often, this is said by the stepmother or stepsisters. In the Grimms' version, both the stepmother and the father urge it.
Cinderella arrives and proves her identity by fitting into the slipper or other item in some cases she has kept the other. In the German version of the story, the evil stepsisters are punished for their deception by having their eyes pecked out by birds. In other versions, they are forgiven, and made ladies-in-waiting with marriages to lesser lords.
In The Thousand Nights and A Night , in a tale called "The Anklet",  the stepsisters make a comeback by using twelve magical hairpins to turn the bride into a dove on her wedding night. In The Wonderful Birch , the stepmother, a witch, manages to substitute her daughter for the true bride after she has given birth. Such tales continue the fairy tale into what is in effect a second episode. In an episode of Jim Henson 's The Storyteller , writer Anthony Minghella merged the old folk tale Donkeyskin also written by Perrault with Cinderella to tell the tale of Sapsorrow , a girl both cursed and blessed by destiny.
Many popular new works based on the story feature one step-sister who is not as cruel to Cinderella as the other. Examples are the film Ever After , Cinderella 3 and the Broadway revival. Folklorists have long studied variants on this tale across cultures. Further morphology studies have continued on this seminal work. In Cinderella was presented at Drury Lane Theatre , London , described as "A new Grand Allegorical Pantomimic Spectacle" though it was very far in style and content from the modern pantomime.
However, it included notable clown Joseph Grimaldi playing the part of a servant called Pedro, the antecedant of today's character Buttons. In the traditional pantomime version the opening scene takes place in a forest with a hunt in progress; here Cinderella first meets Prince Charming and his "right-hand man" Dandini , whose name and character come from Gioachino Rossini 's opera La Cenerentola. Cinderella mistakes Dandini for the Prince and the Prince for Dandini. Her father, Baron Hardup, is under the thumb of his two stepdaughters, the Ugly sisters , and has a servant, Cinderella's friend Buttons.
Throughout the pantomime, the Baron is continually harassed by the Broker's Men often named after current politicians for outstanding rent. The Fairy Godmother must magically create a coach from a pumpkin , footmen from mice , a coach driver from a frog , and a beautiful dress from rags for Cinderella to go to the ball.
