New Release: Girl Who Sat by the Ashes

girlwhosatbytheashes Elizabeth is proud to announce the release of The Girl Who Sat by the Ashes, a Cinderella tale by Padraic Colum, now available at Audible. This audiobook was produced through Listen2aBook, and Elizabeth has plans to release more public domain titles (by authors like Edith Wharton and Louisa May Alcott) in 2016.

This Irish version of the Cinderella story is a classic fairy tale as you have never heard it before. Master storyteller and folklorist Padraic Colum creates a completely unique world of enchanted woods, marauding giants, gossiping geese, and a supernatural cloak made of crow feathers. Through her many adventures, Maid-Alone, Colum’s heroine, remains steadfast in her quiet strength and wisdom. Listeners of all ages will enjoy this magical retelling of a familiar legend.
