Sweet retelling of Sleeping Beauty, set in 18th century France. But what's with the Australian king/knight whatever he was?! huh, that so didn't fit. And some dialogues seemed out of place, too modern given the general tone of the book.

The narrator clearly knew French so it really irritated me that she Anglised some names but not others.

The afterword by the author almost wrecks it all. Don't read it unless you want a lecture on why we should believe in fairies...

I am not familiar with the other books in the series so perhaps the ending would have been better explained if I had read the first two. But I honestly was lost for the latter half of the book. Things happened quickly and with Alice's intervention which could have come anytime within the hundred years as far as I can tell. I did like how she used the backdrop of the French Revolution and the Industrial Revolution to motivate the dads. The history was woven flawlessly into the story.
A short version of the Sleeping Beauty story, there is nothing that makes this story unique.

I think if I'd found Masson as a teen I'd be enamoured of her. But as an adult, I find myself enjoying her work, but wanting MORE. More meat, and juice, and adult complications.

A retelling of Sleeping Beauty. Unfortunately I found it tedious! I couldn't wait for it to be over.

Such a beautiful story. Short but sweet. I absolutely adore Masson's retelling of a classic fairytale, and how she weaves the magic of nature into it too.
Unfinished. I found it rather slow and boring.
