Catherine may be one of the most desired girls in Wonderland and a favourite of the unmarried King, but her interests lie elsewhere. A talented baker, she wants to open a shop and create
delectable pastries. But for her mother, such a goal is unthinkable for a woman who could be a queen.
At a royal ball where Cath is expected to receive the King’s marriage proposal, she meets handsome and mysterious Jest. For the first time, she feels the pull of true attraction. At the risk of offending the King and infuriating her parents, she and Jest enter
into a secret courtship.
Cath is determined to choose her own destiny. But in a land thriving with magic, madness, and monsters, fate has other plans.
This is the story about how the Queen of hearts became the way she is.
We find out what made the Queen of Hearts become such a blubbering, humourless, merciless and heartless terror.
At the beginning of the story we are introduced to Catherine Pinkerton, the sweet girl who dreams of opening her own bakery .
But her mother has other plans. She wants to make her the Queen of Hearts.
“You’re the daughter of a marquess. Look around. Look at the things you have, the life you’re accustomed to. You don’t know what it’s like to work every day so you can feed yourself and
keep a roof over your head. You don’t know what it’s like to be poor. To be a servant.”
Not only does Cath not want to be a court lady, but her heart most definitely does not belong to the insipid King of Hearts. With a
sexist society to raise your blood pressure and a forbidden love story to make your heart beat faster, just throw a murderous Jabberwock and the mad hatter for some light heartedness.
It was magical, and adorable, story. Even though you know how it will end. There is part of you hoping for a different ending
