About the Book
Will Hawkins is just a simple stable boy. How can he hope to woo Ella, his once-wealthy childhood friend who is stubbornly independent, especially when his competition is the prince? Without any magic or fairy godmothers, Will must show Ella that he is her true prince charming in this perspective twist of the Cinderella story.
About the Author
Jessilyn Stewart Peaslee graduated with a BA in English from Brigham Young University in 2004. She loved taking creative writing classes, and was particularly fond of the works of Shakespeare, Jane Austen, and the Bronte sisters. She also studied French and the humanities. Jessilyn grew up in the beautiful deserts of Southern California and now resides in the shadow of the Rocky Mountains in Saratoga Springs, Utah, with her husband and five boys.
Jessilyn Stewart Peaslee has written another charming retelling of the story of Cinderella. This time it is from the point of Ella Blackeley’s friend, Will, a brilliant stable hand that once worked for Ella’s father and now works for the royal family. Yet again Jessilyn will capture the heart and attention of her readers with this delightful and magical retelling and twist on one of my all-time favorite fairytales. This is a story filled with a fantastic story and magnificent characters that readers will love. I would recommend this novel to teens that enjoy fairytales and romance.
