One of the things that I loved when I started my first old book blog was meeting authors. Indie authors were particularly friendly. And there’s quite a lot of talent in the pool. I really enjoy getting to read books, and to talk books. This book is on my Books To Read list. And here at Roxbury Books I like to keep my focus on clean books that leave you with a feeling of hope.
When I agreed to host a spotlight, I was able to ask Amanda a question about this book. And since I like to know what inspired a book, my question was easy. I loved Amanda’s answer too.
Roxbury Books: What was the inspiration behind this book?
Amanda: I had finished “Befriending the Beast” (a spin-off of Beauty and the Beast) as a stand-alone when an author friend asked, “Hey, have you ever considered a father/daughter Cinderella story?” And that is exactly where the inspiration started. I prayed about it, and the Lord supplied the full story.
Amanda Tero has graciously provided the graphics, and giveaway. (And because you may find it interesting, I’m also including the blog tour list of blogs. Find reviews, giveaways, and more.)
About the Book
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?

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!
“Trust in the Lord with all thine heart, and lean not unto thine own understanding.” (Proverbs 3:5)
