About the Book
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?
A unique twist on the Cinderella story.
What a beautiful picture of a father’s love for his daughter. After all, who is the first male role model in our lives? What happens if that man is absent (or cruel)?
Author Amanda Tero manages to bring a new theme of love to the classic romance tale we all know—let’s be honest, we all know this story backward, forward, and every way in-between. The father/daughter twist brings a freshness to the story.
There are some enjoyable twists and surprises along the way. Both Raoul and Lia must release control to God in order to fully embrace the gift of each other.
A short, but uplifting read that will remind teenage girls that love can be found in their daddies, or if he’s not in the picture, in God. Love that protects and doesn’t injure. Love that lasts through pain of separation and loss. Love that endures all things.

About the Author
Amanda Tero is a homeschool graduate who desires to provide God-honoring, family-friendly reading material. She has enjoyed writing since before ten years old, but it has only been since 2013 that she began seriously pursuing writing again – starting with some short stories that she wrote for her sisters as a gift. Her mom encouraged her to try selling the stories she published, and since then, she has begun actively writing short stories, novellas, and novels.
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.
