What if the slipper fits someone else?

Ella’s fingers hovered over the beautiful shoes in the box, afraid that if she touched them they might burst like a bubble, vanishing into a million pieces. They were clear as a teardrop, but when they caught the light, they glistened faintly with all the colors of the rainbow.

“Are they made out of fairy wings?” Ella whispered.

Since her parents’ deaths, Ella Blakely has lived as a stranger and a servant in her own home. Treated cruelly by her stepmother and stepsisters, Ella’s only hope comes when Prince Kenton announces a royal ball in just one week.

But without mice, magic, or a fairy godmother, it’s all up to Ella to overcome the odds, get herself to the ball, and take a chance on a new life that’s better than she ever dreamed.

    I love fairy tale retellings and Cinderella is one of my favorites! I loved that this version had no magical fairy godmother but it was all up to the heroine to make her own happiness. The big “twist” wasn’t a surprise to me at all — I saw that coming from the beginning — but I still loved the direction it took. A wonderful story!
