An internal conflict would be that Ash doesn't know who she should love-Sidhean or Kaisa. She is trying to figure out her true feelings for both of them, but it is very hard for her. An external conflict would be her stepmother and stepsisters, who treat her horribly. She tries to solve this by doing whatever they ask and not talking back. It doesn't work so well. I agree with what she's doing with her love dilemma, because she shouldn't just rash;y choose who she's going to spend the rest of her life with. I don't agree with what she's doing with her stepmother, but I guess there's not much she can do. If she talks back, she will end up on the streets with nowhere to go.
