Q&A with author Karen Rose Smith!
Q: Why does the Cinderella story never get old?
A: Once upon a time there was a woman who dreamt of dressing up in a beautiful gown, wearing magnificent jewelry and spectacular shoes. But most of all she dreamt of a handsome man gazing at her as if she were the most special woman in his life. The Cinderella fairytale is for the young and old and every age in between. A man proposing on bended knee declaring his love in front of the world brings tears to our eyes.
Why? Because loving and being loved seems to drive women to search for Prince Charming and men to search for their Cinderella. The more hectic the world becomes both men and women need a soft place to fallthat one person who is supportive, respectful and loving through thick and thin.
Commitment and marriage vows are integral to the Cinderella dream. The Cinderella fairytale never grows old because dreams give us hope. We pass down fairytales from generation to generation and along with them the belief that love can truly conquer all.
