“Let us read, and let us dance; these two amusements will never do any harm to the world.” ― Voltaire

I am so excited to be a part of Shantelle Mary Hannu’s cover reveal for her book, A Dream Not Imagined. It is a Cinderella retelling, and her debut novel. So without further ado, I present the amazing cover:


About the Book

A MAID, a PRINCE, and a DUKE. A GARDENER, a STEPMOTHER, and a secret…

Ellie Abbington, a beautiful yet unassuming young woman, quietly longs for her life to change. Too privileged to associate with the servants—too underprivileged to associate with her own family; she dreams a dream of a prince and a happily ever after.

But it could be that her own stepsisters, conniving Dezmarie and easily-influenced Adelaide, are dreaming the same dream…of the same prince.

In the end, are dreams even all they’re made out to be? Especially with deep and long-hidden secrets about to be unearthed?

A Dream Not Imagined is a non-magical fairytale novella based loosely on the classic tale of Cinderella.

Tentative Release Date: June 2015

A Christian homeschool graduate, Shantelle has a passion for writing and all things books.
