By Rafe Martin

In a village by the shores of Lake Ontario lived an invisible being. All the young women wanted to marry him because he was rich, powerful and supposedly very handsome. But to marry the invisible being the women had to prove they had seen him, and none had been able to do so. Then came the Rough Face girl, scarred from working by the fire. Could she succeed where her beautiful, cruel sisters had failed? From Algonquin Indian folklore comes one of the most haunting, powerful versions of the Cinderella story ever told.
