Item Description...
Dottie Meyers, 35, lives with her little black dog on a small farm in Kansas that's about to be hit by a tornado. Knocked unconscious by the storm, she awakens three months later to find that her father, last seen when she was four, has left her a mysterious pair of ruby slippers. The journey that Dottie and three friends take from Los Angeles to Seattle in search of her dad, along with everything connected to those sparkling red shoes, will help heal her broken childhood and prepare her heart for love.

Publishers Description
Dottie Meyers, 35, is a real-life Dorothy Gale living with her little black dog on a small farm in Kansas that's about to be hit by a tornado. Knocked unconscious by the storm, she awakes three months later at a recovery facility in California where her father, last seen when she was four, has left her a mysterious pair of ruby slippers.

But unlike "The Wizard of Oz," this isn't a dream, and the yellow brick road journey that Dottie and three friends are about to take from Los Angeles to Seattle in search of her dad will show the realities of a broken childhood. More importantly, everything connected to those sparkling red shoes will prove to Dottie that there's only one true wonder worker behind the so-called curtain who can heal her wounds and prepare the heart for love.

Ruby's Slippers  Mar 31, 2010

Dottie Meyers is happy with her life in Kansas. All she ever wanted was the family farm, a family to love, and her dad to return home. Her sister, Abby, on the other hand, always wanted more--more money and more fame. Now, Abby is a famous movie star, but she is always out of money--she sold what things she had, and went home to Kansas to try to talk Dottie into selling her farm--and to see if there was anything in the basement she could steal, and sell.

When a tornado blows through Kansas, Dottie, and her little dog Otto, are blown away. Dottie wakes up in Kansas where she finds that Abby has sold the farm from under her (and pocketed the money), and her dad has left her a mystery gift--a pair of Ruby slippers.

Now everyone wants those slippers, including Dottie's own sister. So Dottie and some friends travel to Seattle in search of answers. What is the story behind those slippers? And is it possibly that they will solve Dottie's problems?

RUBY'S SLIPPERS is a really cute play off of The Wizard of Oz and Cinderella in a more contemporary tale. I enjoyed reading this story--but I didn't really care for the ending so much. Dottie is a sweetheart of a character, and I just couldn't believe the selfishness of Abby, but sadly she reminds me strongly of someone I know.

RUBY'S SLIPPERS is humorous and entertaining, and yet teaches an important lesson about family, material goods, and love. Highly recommended.
Loved this book!  Mar 17, 2010
I absolutely loved this book. It was very well written, the characters are very likeable. The author is awesome! Our book club had a phone interview with her! She is wonderful.
Written for ME!  Mar 11, 2010
As a lifelong Oz fan I swear this book was written for me! Leanna Ellis takes us on a somewhat familiar trip to the Emerald City with her charming main character aptly named Dottie and her little dog Otto. Very well written and engaging. I didn't want this one to end. Fabulous book, one that I'll be keeping on my bookshelf for years to come!
a wonderful surprise  Feb 3, 2010
New author to me, Leanna Ellis, was a pleasant surprise. This is not a book that I would have picked up myself. It was given to me, and I am so glad it was. I would categorize it as Christian Chick Lit. It is a fun and easy read; however, there was much more substance than I expected. This novel could have been extremely cheesy; but a little cheddar never hurt anyone. I actually enjoyed the parallels to the Wizard of Oz, especially within the characters. Dottie Meyers is injured in a tornado in Kansas and wakes up in a nursing home where she had been given ruby slippers by a father she never knew. This leads her on a journey: a journey toward family and truth. Along the way she picks up friends who each add something to Dottie's life she didn't even realize she was missing. I love the moments of Sophia mentoring Dottie, and I was moved by the moments of realization and reconciliation. One of my favorite moments was in a conversation about prayer. Dottie asks "what if I only have complaints?" and the response: "You think He doesn't know them already?" They continue to talk about prayer and how it is about our relationship with our Father. She does meet her biological dad, but more importantly she gets to know her heavenly Father. In the end, this is who she wants to share with her sister. This was a not only a fun book, but also a well thought out one with a beautiful testimony of Dottie's personal growth. It worked for me. [...]
A Cute Retelling of an Iconic Film  Jan 22, 2010
Although I am not necessarily a "Wizard of Oz" fan, I thought the cover and premise of this book sounded cute and fun. The new idea of taking a commonly loved or known story and remaking it, or even writing a sequel to it, can be a novelty at times. This retelling of this iconic film is interesting, and fun to draw up the similarities as you read.

Told from Dottie's point of view, we watch this woman of 35 (ironically my own age), drift into a seemingly life of retirement. She seemed much older than 35, and this is heightened after her accident when she is placed in a "recovery facility" that seemed similar to a retirement home. The first half of the book felt disjointed, and it was difficult for me to attach to many of the characters; however, once I reached her recovery point, and she had made friends and decided to hit the road in search of her father, I felt much more connected to the characters and their journey.

While slightly predictable, and characters that I didn't always feel I understood or should care about, there is a cute, light-hearted story here as well. The romance is a tad syrupy for my taste, but I realize that might be what I was walking into, and should have realized it from the beginning. There is a sense of resolution in the story, so you do end feeling as if the book has come full circle, which is satisfying. Overall, I would say that the story is cute and entertaining, and although some characters, for me, were difficult to attach to, their comparisons from the film are fun to consider as you read.
