Being a cripple is only the beginning of Lia’s troubles. It seems as if Bioti’s goal in life is to make Lia as miserable as possible. If Lia’s purpose is to be a slave, then why did God make her a cripple? How can He make something beautiful out of her deformity?
Raoul never questioned the death of his daughter until someone reports her whereabouts. If Ellia is still alive, how has she survived these ten years with her deformity? When Raoul doesn’t know who to trust, can he trust God to keep Ellia safe when evidence reveals Bioti’s dangerous character?
As time brings more hindrances, will Raoul find Ellia, or will she forever be lost to the father she doesn't even know is searching for her?
The Secret Slipper by Amanda Tero is a sweet and delightfully unusual retelling of Cinderella. In this version Ellia is Cinderella and the one searching for her is the Prince Raoul, her father.
Ellia is embittered by her crippled foot and all that life has thrown her way and she sees no way out. As the book progresses, God turns shows her how to lean on Him, find her faith again as well as open herself to God.
I found this unusual Tale of Faith to be creative, full of action and easily read as a stand alone story. It is well written and the characters are engaging. All in all a Good Read.
