Ann Dorsett I think that skin color and "passing" are huge elements of this novel. Identity-- being a woman, being a black woman. Also the mother/daughter relationship. This book is so much more than a fantasy re-telling of Snow White.
Ruth Charchian Only if you want to discuss the elements of good fantasy writing vs poor writing. Which isn't a bad idea at all.
