A fresh new look based roughly on the tale of Snow White but with powerful, complex female characters.
Things I loved: That the love stories portrayed were all unique and unexpected. Not confined to romantic attraction and not limited to heterosexual relationships. Fully developed characters. Loved a chance to hear the story from two different character's perspectives.
Things I didn't love: A lot of the story was simply introspective internal dialect. While well done, it made the story move a bit slowly and be a bit dull at points.
However, I would definitely recommend and was glad to stumble across this gem!

Refreshing version of Snow White. Strong relatable female characters. Entertaining story with a good pace. Finally a story where the Step Mother is kind and loving! My two oldest children were wedding presents from my husband. I didnt create them - but they have always been my kids. Never once have I referred to them as "Step". This is the 1st story where a 2nd Mom is a character I can cheer for. Thank you Melissa ❤

This was one of my most anticipated reads and I'm so glad I chose to listen to it as an audiobook because the format made me slow down and really savour the rich prose and terrific character development. One of the best queer fairytale retellings I've ever read.
