“The Secret Slipper” by Amanda Tero

Tour banner

Hello Friends! I’m here today with another release from one of my favorite authors (partly because she’s also a close friend ;-), Amanda Tero! The Secret Slipper is the second in a series of novellas that Amanda is writing, the first of which, Befriending the Beastwas released last year.

So what’s the book about? Well, I’ll tell ya….

The Secret Slipper 02 small

“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?”

As with Befriending the BeastThe Secret Slipper is a fairy-tale retelling! I personally love fairy-tale retellings, and Cinderella stories are some of my favorites. This one was no exception! Following in the same style as the first one, instead of a handsome prince, the male MC is her father. I just love that! And I absolutely loved this book! Amanda did a great job developing the characters. I can’t give anything away, but she did an amazing job of slipping in an undercurrent of uncertainty with one particular character that turned out to be proven correct in the end even though I was still not expecting it to happen!

The plot development was also great! I never felt like there were any parts that dragged, but things transitioned smoothly throughout. I really like the way she switched up the chapters with the two points of view. You were able to follow each of the main characters and their stories, and I could hardly put it down when it got to the point where I could tell they were about to converge! Aahhh, I just loved it.

The spiritual journeys and lessons each of the characters learned were so good! I think one of my favorite things about Amanda’s stories is the way she weaves spiritual truth and lessons seamlessly into her work.

So in conclusion, I truly do think this is Amanda’s best book yet, and I’m giving it 5 stars! Can’t wait for upcoming stories!

Oh, and I forgot to mention just how much I love the cover! So beautiful!

So don’t hesitate! Head over to Amazon and grab your own copy!
