I am excited to present to you…..

The Fairy Godmother, from A Dream Not Imagined by Shantelle Mary Hannu.

 

***************

 

Every Cinderella story has a fairy godmother . . . right? Well, A Dream Not Imagined isn’t magical, so we don’t have wands and magical twinkles. But we do have a sweet, grandmotherly old woman in the story.

She has snow-white hair, a short, round figure, and gentle but wise eyes.

My ‘fairy godmother’ might wear something like these dresses:

If you would you like to get to know this dear woman better, and see her connected with Ellie (Cinderella), then do pick up a copy of A Dream Not Imagined! 🙂

 

About the Book

image

A MAID, a PRINCE, and a DUKE. A GARDENER, a STEPMOTHER, and a secret…

Ellie Abbington, a beautiful yet unassuming young woman, quietly longs for her life to change. Too privileged to associate with the servants—too underprivileged to associate with her own family; she dreams a dream of a prince and a happily ever after.

But it could be that her own stepsisters, conniving Dezmarie and easily-influenced Adelaide, are dreaming the same dream…of the same prince.

In the end, are dreams even all they’re made out to be? Especially with deep and long-hidden secrets about to be unearthed?

A Dream Not Imagined is a non-magical fairytale novella based loosely on the classic tale of Cinderella.
