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.
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!
