The Secret Slipper-Book Spotlight and Review

Hello all! Today I'm here to share with you a bit about Amanda's new release, The Secret Slipper! I had the privilege of Beta-reading it, and it was absolutely splendid! So, first I'm gonna let you read about the book, and then you can read my review. ;) 
And there's a giveaway, too, so be sure and enter that! 

About the 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 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?

Doesn't it sound splendid?! Well, it is. So go and get yourself a copy. ;) Now for the review . . . 

My Review: 

I had the privilege of beta-reading The Secret Slipper and I enjoyed the story immensely! The father-daughter take on an old fairy talk classic was delightful, and I cannot wait to share it with my sister, who is impatiently awaiting the paperback. 
The characters were all done very well; there really wasn't any that were in the book for no reason. They all had a purpose. Which was nice to read for a change. ;) The struggles of the characters were also very well done and very relateable
And, as always, Ms. Tero was able to weave the thread of the gospel message into the story flawlessly, in a way that didn't at all feel preachy. It made it stand out so much more because of that. 
So yes, a wonderful retelling that I would definitely recommend
