If you like re-tellings to Fairy Tales, this is one of the best, and most surprising I have read. It is a modern re-telling, but just so amazing and beautiful.

I found this novel extremely touching... it just left me speechless and it has opened my heart. Beauty even made me cry... twice.

THIS BOOK IS A MUST READ!
