My Review...

5 Star Rating

This is a charming fairy tale story from Sarah Holman.

It's a super sweet retelling of the familiar Cinderella fairy tale we know already. It slightly differs from the traditional story, but only "just enough" so that you still see the original fairy tale shining through.

Amelia Ella is our heroine, and her heart goes out to the boy she spent all her childhood playtime with -- Alex -- but she feels their love isn't meant to be. Her happy life changed drastically with the death of her father; her step-mother takes control over her new daughter, with a wicked scheme to oust Amelia from the family heritage.

I love what Sarah Holman did with the story -- how she added plenty of sweetness, love, and integrity. It's the perfect afternoon read.

Simply delightful.

Waltz into the Waves is available on Amazon in e-book format.
