This was somewhat hard of a pill to swallow, as I really loved Raoul’s character at that point, and I was almost disappointed in the ending working out the way it did.

Before Midnight leaves the father alive, like many of the original stories do, but fills in his story. She explained it well, but at the sane time I didn’t think it warranted the punishment that Cameeron received. Typical Cinderella retelling for the most part. More books from this author: And no spoilers, but I heartily love the entire puzzle and ensuing conflict revolving around and from Raoul. Thanks for telling us about the problem. Both of them were forbidden to leave the estate.

Book Review: Before Midnight by Cameron Dokey

It doesn’t resemble the begore Cinderella in the least. But in being born, the child takes her mother’s life, and her father, Etienne, does not learn of her birth until he arrives with a newborn boy in his arms two weeks later. At the end, everything is wrapped up a little too neatly. The story also impresses the importance of releasing grief and pain in order to move on with your life.

The way that Rapunzel won over everyone she came in contact with through her courage and perseverance and not just beauty.


I was a bit uneasy about the way that Rapunzel got Prince Alexander and Rue together, but then I remembered it was a fairy tale. I don’t think it adds much to the story that’s been told time and time again.

There’s not a lot in the story about the battle like there was in the movie, but it is a very important part of the story. Dokey writes it her w Out of all the fairy tales I have read, including the Brothers Grimm, these have to be some of my favorite retellings of Cinderella, Rapunzel, and Mulan.

Rapunzel was the most surprising retelling, Rapunzel without any hair. I found it delightfully unpredictable despite knowing that it’s a Cinderella tale Romance shreds any possible conflict in a disgusting fashion.

Translation to Spanish, why not? The magic that Melisande processed was also unique and how it effected the events of the story. Wild Orchid, oh how wonderful this story is!

Rapunzel was bald and gave her name to the girl she saved from a forever life in a tower this is the ‘Rapunzel’ we all know and love and names herself Susan and falls in love with Harry.

This story was not like that. A Retelling of “Rapunzel” took me by surprise. Books by Cameron Dokey.

Rich city girls sent to the country, they can’t get used to it and are thus sometimes difficult and ignorant of servants.


Her choice will lead La Cendrillon and Raoul toward their destiny — a choice midinght will challenge their understanding of family, test their loyalty and courage, and, ultimately, teach them who they are.

She lives in Seattle, Washington, with her husband and four cats. I adored what “Ever After” did for the character of the stepmother for that reason, as it bh gave her character a bit more depth.

Brookemy co-blogger, did a good job explaining what was in the book and what it was about so I won’t go into that. But before he abandons begore for king and court, he brings a second child to be raised alongside her, a boy whose identity he does not reveal.
