Cinderella Parallel

The story I selected that features familiar parallels with the Cinderella fairy tale is “The Rough-Face Girl”, which takes place in an Algonquin setting. The protagonist was selected to take care of a fire for years upon years, inflicting a plethora of scars upon her face and arms. She was one of three sisters, with the other two being described as beautiful, yet cruel. All of them desired to marry the “invisible being”, as he is described as being “rich, powerful, and very handsome.” However, the only way to marry him would be to prove that they could see him. Is the beauty of the two sisters enough, or is there, perhaps, more required to witness the invisible being?
