Ruby Slippers by Leanna Ellis



Leanna Ellis is one of my new favorite authors. She writes such unique stories and she has aggreed again to give a luck Write By Faith reader a copy of her newest novel Ruby Slippers.
I wanted to make this a little more interesting so in order to win you have to answer a few trivia questions about The Wizard of Oz.
But before we get to the contest lets me give you a little discription of Ruby Slippers.




Wizard of Oz meets Cinderella When Dottie Meyers loses her ‘no place like home’ during a Kansas tornado, she wakes up to find a pair of ruby slippers left by her father who abandoned his family thirty years ago. With her sister hot on her trail to find the treasured ruby slippers, Dottie travels a yellow brick road with three friends to find her father. No wizard can solve her problems. Only the love of a heavenly father can heal her wounds and give her the desires of her heart. There’s no place like … the heart for God’s healing touch.








Go here to read the first chapter.
