Being a novella, I finished it fast and found it rather interesting and short. As well as straight to the point.
I don’t really hate the stepmother for what she does, at least she is sensible and had motivations to do what she did. If she were to pick Cendrilla over her daughters, then that is a little strange.
But I won’t consider this a misfortune, I mean betrothing a girl to a troll is not a good thing. So, yeah I believe that she simply got paid back in coin what she simply insisted on Cendrilla taking.
Overall, quite interesting and rather fascinating. And also, a nice break from what I am reading this days.
