really liked it
Read in May, 2010

A re-telling of the classic Sleeping Beauty, something along the lines of Wicked, is what I had expected when I picked this one up. Wrong. Instead, it was a poignant and powerful book, richly weaving the Holocaust, a family history and the fairy tale together. Beware, like most 'real' fairy tales, parts of this story are not for the faint of heart ... but it will stay with you forever.
