Book Review: The Cinderella Plan By Margaret Daley
From the Tiny Blessings Series.Anne has a crush on her minister Caleb Williams.
Three girls from the teen center transformed her into Cinderella. She's not sure that he would want to date someone as 'plain' as she is, and she didn't have the strong faith that he had. Still, she dreams of being with him.
What I Thought:
It was a sweet story. Anne came from a background where her parents basically ignored her, all they cared about was each other and their career. The only family member who loved her was her Grandma Rose, who taught her about God. There were also her three best friends, Rachel, Pilar and Meg who she knew from school and made life better for her when kids picked on her at school. She has a physical defect and she's shy also. The hero, Caleb had been hurt before when he tried to convert someone to God and it didn't work, so he's not trying to fall in love with her. She's not trying to fall for him, but they do anyway. A child is also involved in the story, whom they both love and are trying to help. It takes two near tragic events for Anne to come to God and put her faith in him. Out of five stars, I give it a 4.5.
