    I don?t usually read Amish romances, but I love fairy tale retellings and I loved the Ellie?s People books when I was a kid, so I decided to try this one out. I?m glad I did! While it?s somewhat simplistic, it?s also very sweet and fairy tale-like. Like most Amish romances, i...

    The author does an interesting job of retelling the Cinderella story in an Amish setting, recasting all the magical events into realistic moments. And this was definitely Disney's Cinderella story as Ella was "talking" to the mice and resisting her stepmother's insistence that she set ...

    When I read the last Amish retelling of a fairy tale by this author I knew I had to read all the books in the series. When Ella: An Amish Retelling of Cinderella became available on Netgalley I immediately requested. I was able to read in two sessions and stayed up after midnight finis...

    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 t...

    I really enjoyed Ella: An Amish Retelling of Cinderella. Ella is a young Amish woman who lost her mother at a young age. When her father remarries, Ella is treated poorly by her new stepmother and two stepsisters. I really admired Ella's character. She is kind and her faith is the cent...

    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 simi...

    I received a complimentary copy of this book from Kensington Books and Netgalley. I was under no obligation to post a review and have given my honest opinion Ella Troyer is faced with losing her mom gaining a new family and then losing her dad. She is reminded of her mother's memory...

    Sarah Price brings us another book that is an Amish retelling of fairy tales. The does a great job following the Cinderella fairy tale, however, I read it with mixed emotions. I understand the Amish concept of forgiveness to others for their actions, however, I felt that Ella was t...

    Sarah Price has a gift of recapturing old fairy tales and making them new! Her second book in this series is Ella-an Amish adaptation of Cinderella. It has all the elements of the original but told uniquely Amish. Ella is an Amish woman living with her Amish stepmother and stepsisters....

    Cinderella has always been one of my favorite fairytales. The thought of how people can treat others so bad and with little disregard makes me sad and angry. In this tale, Ella is unmarried and lives at home with her parents. When her mother passes, her father seeks the companionship o...

    So cute, so well written, a fantasy, a reality and more. This was a great read it was warm, and ful filling. Very true to the Amish life and culture as told. The main characters were well developed and sincere. ...

    Fairytale retellings are a bit addicting for me - the minute I see the word "fairytale," I immediately pick up the book and start reading. And if it's an Amish retelling? Now my interest is peaked! Cinderella is a classic, and it's a fairly simple tale to mold into whatever subgenre yo...

    This is the first book I have read of Sarah Price I enjoyed this book. I love fairy tales in general but I enjoyed her Amish writing of this classic. The story between Hannes and Ella was super exciting I enjoyed the twist through out the book. The way Elle loved the Lord and kept her ...

    Ella is a fun, quick read that transports the reader into an Amish tale that incorporates all of the expected components and characters of the Cinderella fairytale, though not always in an expected way.  Her stepmother is appropriately capriciously cruel and her step-sisters vain and ...

    I really enjoyed this Amish tale of Cinderella. Ella having lost both parents is subjected to a lot. Her stepmother and stepsisters is are not nice at all. She is constantly responsible for everything , waiting on them hand and foot. Her mom had always told her to be kind and helpful. ...

    If I were to use only one word to describe this book, it would be sweet. While I?m still pretty new to the Amish fiction genre, I love fairytale retellings, so when I heard about this book, it really jumped out at me. This novel did not disappoint me. I was impressed with how the aut...

    Ella, is the second book in Sarah Prices? new series where she retails fairy tales in an everyday Amish setting. As an avid reader of novels that retail fairy tales, I can honestly say that this version is in my top two books, I just can?t decide which one I like better, so maybe i...

    Thoroughly enjoyed this retelling of Cinderella! Very clever changes to the needed details to make it a new way of telling one of my favorite fairytales! I love to read reimaginings of all my favorites. I took one star off for two reasons: 1. because I didn?t feel it was as mesmerizi...

    This is the second book in the Amish Fairytale series. I've read and enjoyed both a lot. This is such a fun read. Amish book readers will get a kick out of how this story mirrors the fairytale Cinderella. Ella is a young woman still unmarried and living at home with her father. Her mot...

    I received this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Another modern day Cinderella tale with an Amish twist. Sarah Price is one author that I'm going to read more of. For a person who usually stays away from anything resembling Amish, I find myself captivated by ...

    I absolutely loved Ella! This is the second book in Price's, An Amish Fairytale series and both books have been so good. Price takes the well known Fairy tale, Cinderella, and remakes it into an Amish book, and she does it so well. Ella tells the story of Ella Troyer. Her father, a...

    I love a good fairy tale, and ?Cinderella? has always been my favorite. But I have to admit that I think this may now be my very favorite version of that tale. Sarah Price has done an excellent job of placing this story in an Amish setting. I loved everything about this book. I lau...

    I know this is supposed to be a retelling is Cinderella, but I literally couldn?t handle how the stepsisters were written. It almost seemed unbelievable, especially in the Amish culture. The girls and their mother would have been in homemaking roles before they joined Ella?s family...

    What an adorable tale! Cinderella is one of my favorite fairytales, with Ever After being my favorite version (although it's movie form and not a book), because Without the magical pumpkins and mice turned into horses,  it was made to appear possible. I love this retelling for the sam...

    What a delightful story! After the death of Ella's mother, her father brought home a woman and her two daughters telling Ella he had decided to remarry. As is Cinderella, the stepmother and stepsisters were unkind to Ella. This increased tremendously after her father's passing. Ella, r...
