Amanda Deed

About the Book:

Plain Jane O’Reilly is good at being unnoticed. Detested by her stepmother and teased by her stepsisters, Jane has learned the art of avoiding attention. That is until Price Moreland, an American with big dreams, arrives in her small town.
Does she dare to hope someone might notice her?
However, Price Moreland may not be the prince that the whole town thinks him to be. Was his desire to be a missionary a God-given call, or just a good excuse to run from his past?
Complete with an evil stepmother, a missing shoe and a grand ball, Unnoticed takes the time-old Cinderella fairy tale and gives it an Australian twist.

My Thoughts and Goodreads review:

I’ve enjoyed Amanda Deed’s Ellenvale’s trilogy, so was looking forward to reading Unnoticed and I wasn’t disappointed. It is a charming and engaging Cinderella retelling set in 19th century NSW.

It has all the elements of the original, a neglected beauty, a distant father, a nasty stepmother and stepsisters, a fairy godmother, a prince, a ball and a shoe – but recasts them appropriate to the time and in fresh ways. Deed also weaves through the story strong spiritual themes. Unnoticed should delight Amanda Deed fans, lovers of Australian historical novels, romances and Christian fiction.

I’m looking forward to reading her next Australian historical fairy tale retelling.
