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?
What I Loved: I appreciate knowing that when I pick up a Tero story, I’ll find something with a strong Christian message. This young lady has much respect for the gospel and presents it well within her work and The Secret Slipper was no exception.
Tero brings a new and creative take on the classic Cinderella story. She strips it of all magic and, instead of a common romance, it’s a love story between father and daughter. I admire the creativity that went into this novella as well as the series.
The setting comes to life with authentic names. And among the rich setting was a timeless message about God turning the difficult things of life into blessings.
Rating and Recommendation: I’m giving The Secret Slipper 5 stars and I recommend it to those who enjoy fairy tale retellings and especially to the younger audience. This a series mothers can feel confident about handing to their daughters.
