The true story behind the original Cinderella Homes. Designed and built by Jean Vandruff in the 1950s and '60s, these homes were characterized by their elegance, charm and comfort. Innovative at the time, Cinderella Homes combined the aesthetic and quality of a custom-built home into a tract home development—at a price families could afford. These magical, well-built homes are still popular today. Jean Vandruff, who is 97 years old, was interviewed extensively for the book.
