In this refreshing retelling of the Cinderella story, Kate (Cinderella) is ordered to pretend to be her stepsister, Victoria. Susan Duerden narrates this moralistic tale of disguise, trickery, and vanity in genteel tones. She portrays the prince with a subtle Germanic accent and gives Kate a sweet, straightforward characterization. The wicked stepsisters and stepmother are depicted in shrill tones. While the story is well known, James provides twists with mistaken identities, disguises, and more. Duerden’s performance is impeccable, especially as she recounts the inevitable court intrigue. Listeners will have trouble keeping a straight face as Duerden weaves this sexy fairytale. M.B.K. 2011 Audies Finalist © AudioFile 2011, Portland, Maine [Published: MARCH 2011]
