In the first English retelling of this ancient Cambodian tale, our heroine goes further, survives more, and has to conquer her own mortality to regain her rightful place. Angkat—child of ashes—endures great wrongs as she seeks to rise above the distresses caused by her own family. Angkat appeared in an 18th century French essay which was found by Dr. Jewell Coburn deep in some dusty archives while she was researching Khmer culture and folklore. This ancient and truly captivating version of the Cinderella story will delight and enthrall readers of all ages.
