"The Secret Slipper" by Amanda Tero

About this book:

  “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 was 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?”

My personal Rating-
I’ve been looking forward to reading this book since I heard after reading “Befriending the Beast” that this would be a series! I’m so excited at the thought of more sweet fairytale re-tellings. Loosely inspired by Cinderella, this one had it’s own twists and also no romance!
I *think* I enjoyed this one even more than the first book…? Maybe? Yes? Haha, I can’t pick! Both are so cute, sweet and lovely. :)

See y’all on Monday with a new review!
