Sienna Bond | 1 comments Hi

My name is Sienna, and I'm new to this group. I thought I would introduce myself by recommending a play I just read: "The Shrew Untamed" by James Carter. It's available in ebook format on Goodreads and Amazon. I think its great fun for those of you who are familiar with "The Taming of the Shrew" and who felt that Kate got a raw deal in Shakespeare's play.
Carter's story is designed for the new age, as an "unorthodox" sequel in which Kate turns the tables on Petruchio and somehow manages to strengthen the love he feels for her. I was pleasantly surprised by the humor in the story, and it should appeal to those of you who like your female leads to be witty, intelligent and a little cunning.

Best regards
Sienna

Emily Snyder (emilycasnyder) | 2 comments There's another version (sequel) that was written in Shakespeare's day wherein Kate is dead and Petruchio marries a new woman who ties him up and puts him in a closet among other things!
