The Question Club
What is the basic plot line of your favorite story (as in, summarized in a few sentences)? "Good versus evil, good wins," is too basic, however. A decent example would be:|
Cursed at birth with a "blessing" from a fairy to always be obedient, the heroine struggles to gain her freedom from people in her life who would abuse her obedience. Her mother dies, her father remarries, and her new step-mother and -sisters are the first to pounce on the opportunity to use her for their own benefit—but they are by no means the only ones to do so. The heroine encounters obstacle after obstacle on her way to trying to break the curse, but only after she realizes what harm could come to her love (a prince) and her country (by marrying the prince) does she find the power within herself to break the curse and live happily ever after.
Second question: Reading the summaries posted, can you guess which books they are?
ETA: Feel free to say what you think the titles are, including mine. Otherwise anyone can say, "Oh, I know that one," when they actually might not.
