"The king's son made a vow that he would never marry any but the one whom the shoe fitted, whatever her rank."

When the king's son comes to the region, the stepmother and half-sisters of The Snow-White Maiden deny her request to attend church to see the Prince. However, with the assistance of Cantrips and her Enchantment Wand, she sees the Prince and catches his eye. When he follows her, succeeds in stealing her golden shoe, and vows to marry the one it fits, her sister is willing to go to great lengths to prevent the Snow-White Maiden from enjoying her happy ever after...

"If I were in your place, I would send her away to that little island over there."

Unsuccessful in her attempts to kill her stepdaughter, the Queen convinces her husband to send the daughter from his first marriage to live on an island for three years. The Maid of the Isle makes the acquaintance of three lads, whose friendship over the years help thwart her stepmother's plans, which grow ever more desperate when a Prince comes to ask for her hand in marriage...

This duo of Inner Hebridean fairytales extend beyond the traditional stories of 'Cinderella' and 'Diamonds & Toads.' Each has an episode of the Supplanted Bride or Heroine at the close of the tale, and can be enjoyed together in this new edition.

[Folklore Type: ATU-510A (The Persecuted Heroine) or ATU-480 (The Kind and Unkind Girls)]
