Ella's Will

Beautiful and beloved only daughter of a kind, generous, recently-deceased widower.
Stepmother and stepsisters who are narcissistic, vain and just plain cruel.
And a great, countryside manor falling into disrepair as the daughter of the house tries vainly to keep it—and her step family—cared for.
Sound familiar?
This is a new twist on the old, familiar story, as told by the young man who figures strongly in the tale.
Ella, struggling to fulfil her father’s final wishes, has become little more than a slave in her own household. But she carries on.
Will, who has loved her since the days he served her father, watches her pain and suffering, helpless to offer any aid.
And then Ella falls under the purview of the Prince. A young man who spells, at once, Ella's salvation and Will's doom. 
Which man will act as her final escort to the ball?
Ella’s Will is a gentle, beautiful story of love, patience, responsibility, and honour.
As well as good old virtues like dependability, duty, restraint, kindness and most of all forgiveness.
But Ella’s Will begs the question: Which is worse? Suffering oneself, or watching a loved one suffer?
I enjoyed my little trip into Ella and Will's world immensely.
Give Ella’s Will a read.
It’s a trip worth taking!
Please Note: I was given a copy of this book to read and review. I was not compensated in any way for said review. Unless you count the enjoyable hours I spent reading . . .


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.
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.
