Cinderella got her her nickname because she always slept by the fire, near the cinders - after her father's death, of course.
Poor girl. No mother, no father, just a wicked stepmother and her spoiled daugthers. No kindness for Cinderella, but hand-me-downs and scraps.
Maybe one day an English Prince will come and save her from this life. I think all of us are praying for her.
