About the Book

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?

The Secret Slipper final

My Review: I LOVE re-imagined fairytales, if they are indeed truly “re-imagined.” Sometimes you will run across a fairytale that claims to be imaginatively reinvented, when in truth it’s the exact same story set in a different time period. The Secret Slipper, however, truly succeeds at bringing a new perspective to the Cinderella story. No romance, no magic, no fairy godmother. It’s the tale of a selfish nursemaid, a missing daughter and a father determined to find her. And this time, instead of “Bibbity Bobbity Boo,” it’s hands folded in prayer; calling on the name of the King of Kings for help.

Bottom Line: The Secret Slipper is an enjoyable, fun, easy read. A Cinderella story that points us to the only One who can make our dreams come true.

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.
