In the little village of Castle Down, in a kingdom plagued by war, lives a peasant girl called Bella. Blessed with a kind family and a loving friend, she manages to create her own small patch of sunlight in a dark and dangerous world. Bella is a blacksmith's daughter; her friend Julian is a prince -- yet neither seems to notice the great gulf that divides his world from hers.

Suddenly Bella's world collapses. First Julian betrays her. Then it is revealed that she is not the peasant she believed herself to be: She is Isabel, the daughter of a knight who abandoned her in infancy. Now he wants her back, so Bella is torn from her beloved foster family and sent to live with her deranged father and his resentful new wife. Soon Bella is caught up in a terrible plot that will change her life -- and the kingdom -- forever. With the help of her godmother and three enchanted gifts, she sets out on a journey in disguise that will lead her to a destiny far greater than any she could have imagined.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book, both as an adult reading it on my own, and again reading it aloud to my daughter. When the story ended, my daughter said, "OK! Get the next book in the series!" Oh, dear girl, if only they were a next book in the series. We want the story of Bella and Julian to continue! We want to know more about what happens with Alice and Beatrice and all of her extended family. We even want to know what happens to her dastardly dad, the knight. We will read on with other Diane Stanley books. She's our new favorite author!

The other reviews have all done a great job of reviewing the plot, so I won't do it again. I'll simply add my two cents. I'm an adult who has taken to reading juvenille fiction simply because of all the graphic trash out there for being sold as adult fiction. I was happy to find I need have no such reservations about this book--it was clean. To the reviewer who said that the first chapter talking about Bella's birth was inappropriate for 10-year-olds, I disagree. It was not graphic. I think few parents would find anything offensive in it--but, of course, if there is any concern, I would urge parents to read the first chapter themselves before deciding.

I know some readers might have a hard time with the fact that each chapter has a different narrator--I did not. In fact, I enjoyed getting different view points. It rounds out the story better than way. The story was not brilliant--but it was a fun read, and don't be misled thinking it's just another Cinderella story. I dislike those cheap rip-offs that require little imagination. "Bella at Midnight" much more than that!

It was a little confusing when the new characters were brought in, but I was able to put that behind me. I loved the changing perspectives! You are able to see the story from all of the ones involved. A delightful twist on the Cinderella tale.

It was a very different take on Cinderella. I enjoyed it very much. Hooray for the princess that can save and work it out by herself.

This book is so great. I could hardly put it down. I am a mom, an English Major, and an Elementary School teacher who loves a good read. This was fantastic. It would be great for an English teacher who is teaching point of view. I read it for fun because I am always looking for good books to read to my daughters and students. Read it -- You'll be glad you did!
One of the best of the mystical, fantasy genres books I've read. I love it and so do my students!
