    Review:

    "The Christmas Ball" by Sherrill Bodine was a wonderful written Christmas novella. This one was definitely a 'twist on Cinderella.' We find that with the help of her half sister Persephone(playing
    the 'fairy godmother,' Athena is going to attend a masked ball where she will really fall in love. The story had a wicked step mother and sister that was very similar to the story of 'Cinderella.' You will find read somewhat predictable but still a wonderfully told story. The sister Persephone will help Athena into attending the ball but all the rest will have to be to for love. Will Athena be able to find 'happiness and love? The characters were all very well developed and with this story being so well intriguing you will only to given a beautiful told story. This novel will warn your heart as you are read through "The Christmas Ball." So, if you are into reading a sweet romantic read for the Christmas holiday I would definitely recommend this one to you.
