In this dark and atmospheric rendition of the Cinderella fairy tale, an intelligent young Englishwoman is made into a virtual slave by her evil stepmother. Her only hope of rescue comes in the shape of a scarred World War I pilot of noble blood, whose own powers over the elements are about to be needed more than ever.

One of the Best books offered on Audible

If you could sum up Phoenix and Ashes in three words, what would they be?

interesting, thought-provoking, brilliant

What did you like best about this story?

I loved the feel of it, the overall sense of realness WW1 brings to the story.

What does Michelle Ford bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

the accents, if you are not a British citizen than the rhythm of the dialog wouldn't be present as vividly.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

to avoid any spoilers, I would just say that the entire journey of hard won Freedom was very moving and a very dear concept.

Any additional comments?

This story is a great retelling of Cinderella, with WW1 as a back drop. That said it is very difficult to say you can't see the ending coming... but this is definitely a book that proves, it's not the destination but the journey that matters. You will enjoy a new landscape as you travel down a fresh path into an old tale. It may even open your eyes to the thought that Fairy Tales may come in, at first glance, ordinary packages.
