Briar Rose: A Novel of the Holocaust (Fairy Tales)

Briar Rose: A Novel of the Holocaust (Fairy Tales)

List price: $20.50

Available: 30

In the heat of midsummer 1942, deep in a forest in the heart of Poland, Briar Rose arrives at a castle that has fallen into the hands of an evil army.

Ever since she was a child, Rebecca has been enchanted by her grandmother Gemma's stories of Briar Rose. Becca would have sworn the stories were made up, but on her deathbed Gemma extracts from Becca a promise to fulfill three impossible requests: find the castle, find the prince, and find the spellmaker. Her vow sends Becca on a remarkable journey to uncover the truth of Gemma's astonishing claim: I am Briar Rose.

Yolen's graceful retelling of the German folktale Briar Rose - known to some as Sleeping Beauty - sets the story amid forests patrolled by the German army during World War II.
