Rose Daughter/McKinley, Robi/Paper/0441005837/S019-C
Beauty and the Beast
Twenty years ago, Robin McKinley dazzled readers with the power of her novel 'Beauty'. Now this extraordinarily gifted novelist returns to the story of Beauty and the Beast, with a fresh perspective, ingenuity, and mature insight. With 'Rose Daughter', she presents her finest and most deeply felt work, a compelling, richly imagined, and haunting exploration of the transformative power of love. "[A] heady mix of fairy tale, magic and romance... Dazzling." - Publishers Weekly. "This luxuriant retelling of the story of the Beauty and the Beast...is full of asides and surprises, and is suffused with obsession for the rose and thorn as flora, metaphor and symbol...the story is full of silvery images." - Kirkus Reviews.
