*complimentary copy of *copy of book from Kensington Books through NetGalley Thank you All opinions expressed are my I received this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest reviewAnother modern day Cinderella tale with an Amish twistSarah Price is one author that I m going to read of For a person who sually stays away from anything resembling Amish I find myself captivated by Price s writing It is in no way boring This was a charming little tale of Ella a girl who lives with her two stepsister and cruel stepmother and forced to do all the chores But one day she meets her prince charming in the form of a businessman just as charming as he is hands But the words seemed to repeat themselves over and over again Be kind And good God has a plan These are the words Ella lived by since her mother s death when she was young Now that her father is ready to remarry the words become a test to her faith and the promise she made to her mother Ella strongly believes that breaking a promise is paramount to lying Linda her new step mother along with Linda s daughter s Drusilla and Anna is testing her faith Life is manageable while her father is the head of the house however when he dies and leaves all that he has his Amish store and house to his wife Ella is at the mercy of her step mother and sisters However with them there is no mercy Ella receives her strength from knowing God does have a plan With the store in crisis since Linda has taken over a young man Amish is in town that has taken notice of Ella He is a mystery with a secret Ella welcomes his kindness and begins to hope Sheer brilliance I get giddy just thinking about this Amish fairy tale series We ve had Beauty and the Beast and now Cinderella and Snow White coming out in the fall I truly hope that this series is as endless as the number of fairy tales out there It s so much fun to spot the similarities to the original tales while marveling at the The Italians Stolen Bride uniue Amish twist Price brings to each storyBe kind and good no matter what happens for God has a plan for you Ella has lived by the wise counsel of her dying mother in the midst of the most trying times Clearly I am not as sweet natured as our plucky heroine because I seethed in fury at the odious Linda s horrid behavior and loudly encouraged Ella to be anything but kind and good Ha I love getting riled at the villains in a fairy tale especially since I know justice will be served in the end And the way this familiar tale plays out is pure magic This author is beyond clever and I want to Nare him as a husband for one of her girls while keeping Ella out of the way As for Hannes he longs to catch another glimpse of the mysterious young woman who can sing so sweetly and bake the most delicious pie he’s ever sampled Now with a little help from somenlikely sources Ella dares to hope she might find her heart’s dearest wishes for love family and a home of her own coming true at last. ,
