About the Book

The Secret Slipper final
Book title: The Secret Slipper
Author: Amanda Tero
Release date: May 25, 2017
Genre: YA Historical Fiction
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?

My Review: 

'The Secret Slipper" by  Amanda Tero is the second book in  the (Tales of Faith) series.  It can be enjoyed as a standalone but it is about Lord Kiralyn's daughter who was supposed to have died.  Lord Kiralyn was in the first book "Befriending The Beast".

These stories are twists on the old fairy tales, "Beauty and the Beast "and "Cinderella". 

"The Secret Slipper" is a cute story but I just thought the stories were just a little too short but if you want stories that can be read fast then I recommend these two. I think from reading Amanda Tero's guest post on the blog's post, there might be more stories coming in the series, but this is just my thought. 

 This story is about how the characters must lean on and trust God when they cannot understand what is happening and why! 

My favorite character is Ellia because of her forgiving nature.

I think I would like to read more of the characters in these two stories as well as reading more stories with a different twist on the old tales.   But, I never really want the characters in the books that I read to really disappear into story land and never be heard of again! 

I am giving "The Secret Slipper" four stars.

I was given a complimentary copy by the author and Celebrate Lit. These opinions are my own.

If something she has written draws an individual into a deeper relationship with Jesus Christ, it is worth it!

Guest post from Amanda Tero

Do you ever have plans that come up from almost nowhere? That is kind of how “The Secret Slipper” started. I had written a fun novella, “Befriending the Beast.” It was a stand-alone. Just for fun. My relief project during a longer project. Well, no sooner had “Befriending the Beast” released when a friend asked me, “Hey, have you considered a father/daughter Cinderella story?” That night I stayed up until after midnight, mulling over ideas and coming up with the title. Lord Kiralyn, who appeared in “Befriending the Beast” as Belle’s uncle now had a story—involving a daughter that I didn’t know existed, but whose existence created a whirlwind of adventure, heartache, and excitement. And now that I have two books in the series, my brain is already pulling at ideas for a book three. But that’s another story for another day.

  1. Thanks for your review, and for being a part of my tour!! :) Yes, Lord willing, there will be future books in the Tales of Faith series! I don't like to "lose" my character-friends either. ;) I'm not sure when book three will come because I'm working on my first full-length novel (an American Civil War story). But I'm eagerly looking forward to working with some of my favorites from "The Secret Slipper!"

  2. I love it's a stand alone too! :D

  3. I enjoyed the review. Thank you.
