But before we get started here is a tantalizing 
           tidbit about the book as a whole:

About the Collection

What happens when Cinderella is so 
painfully shy that she cannot bear the 
idea of attending the royal ball? Or when 
the slipper fits . . . but on the wrong girl? 
  What happens when Cinderella is determined to oust an impostor prince 
  from her rightful throne? Or when she is a cendrillon miner working from 
  a space station orbiting a cthonian planet? What happens when Cinderella, 
  a humble housemaid, is sent with a message for a prisoner trapped in a 
  frightening fairy circus?

Here is Cinderella as you have never met her before, wearing glass slippers 
and off on unforgettable adventures!

Today's Cinderella of the Day is Elisabeth Brown author of
                                                                        What Eyes Can See.
My interview with Elisabeth

Q)  When you wrote What Eyes 
Can See do you have a favorite 
scene that just popped out at 
you and made you go This 
is my story?


A)  Hullo, Meagan! Without giving 
away too much, I think one of my 
favorite scenes is a moment toward 
the end of the story when Drusilla, 
the eldest stepsister, goes to visit poor family with sick children. It’s a very small and 
relatively unimportant moment—that’s basically all the longer it is—but I like it because it 
shows the “ugly stepsister” as someone loving and loved, not as someone hateful and 
hated. Regardless of our circumstances, we can have joy...that’s the story I need to tell 
and to hear.

About Elizabeth Brown:
Elisabeth Brown has always loved words. The third of seven 
children, she enjoyed being homeschooled through her senior 
year of high school, and is now studying piano performance at 
Appalachian Bible College. When she’s ignoring the fact that 
she should probably be practicing more or doing Greek homework, 
you’ll find her sewing, baking, reading, singing along to basically 
any musical ever created, hiking through the woods, or laughing 
at incredibly silly puns.

What Eyes Can See is her first published story, but she also 
rambles at www.metaphoricalcello.wordpress.com.



About What Eyes Can See: 


Painfully shy Arella begs her stepmother 
to let her stay home from the prince’s ball. 
But kindly Duchess Germaine is determined 
that her beautiful stepdaughter should be 
presented at court along with her own two 
daughters. So, dressed in a gorgeous gown 
and a pair of heirloom slippers, Arella catches 
the eye of the crown prince . . . and finds her 
life suddenly far more complicated than she 
ever desired.

My thoughts:

Arella is considered the beauty of the family but she is a shy girl who
hates the spotlight that is placed on her because of her outer appearance.
No one seems to understand Arella's reluctance to attend the ball, no one
except her older step-sister Drusilla.

When Arella's beauty catches the Prince's eye, her life and the life of
her family is suddenly changed.  But only Drusilla can she the strain the
constant attention from the Prince is putting on Arella.

Can Drusilla help Arella realize her happily ever after and find her own too?
With a Prince calling every day it must be love at first sight!  But does anyone
see beneath the surface?  This is story in which appearances are important, but
only if you truly see with your eyes.
