Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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.

Review:

"McKinley is at home in a world where magic is a mainstay and, with her passion for roses, she's grafted a fully dimensional espalier that is a tangled, thorny web of love, loyalty, and storytelling sorcery." School Library Journal

Review:

"Readers will be enchanted, in the best sense of the word." Booklist

Review:

"[B]y turns rushes headlong and slows to a stately pace, is full of asides and surprises, and is suffused with obsession for the rose and thorn as flora, metaphor, and symbol." Kirkus Reviews

Review:

"The age-old Beauty and the Beast tale is refreshingly revisited in this beautiful book...." Children's Literature

Review:

"Engaging and well-written, Rose Daughter resonates with an important message: women have choices and should no longer emulate passive damsels in distress." The ALAN Review

Review:

"McKinley has captured the timelessness of the traditional tale and breathed into it passion and new life appropriate to the story's own 'universal themes' of love and regeneration." VOYA

I loved this! It's hard to write about all the reasons I loved this without giving things away. McKinley does such a wonderful job of making the story of Beauty and the Beast seem fresh, and she fleshes out the basic elements so eloquently. Definitely one of my all-time favorite fairy tale retellings.
