Book Review: A Rose by Any Other Name

Title: A Rose by Any Other Name

Author: Joanne Van Leerdam



Sinister hands snatch a newborn child and carry her to a tower where she lives in loneliness. 
Enmity between feuding families results in an elopement that ends in ways that nobody could foresee. 

You think you know these stories… but do you really?

The destinies of these star-crossed teenagers entwine in this tale that reveals the story that Shakespeare and the Brothers Grimm never told.

My Review

5/5 Stars

This was one of the coolest books I’ve read in a while. It’s a mix of classic literature like Grimm’s fairytales and Shakespeare. We’re taken on a journey full of romance and paranormal surprises…not to mention angst and anguish. Characters that we once knew have been beautifully reintroduced to us. My only issue with this book is I wish it had been longer! I didn’t want to say goodbye to the world the author created here.

Proud author responsible for Dead by Morning and The Council, fascinated by the dark and macabre. Stephen King is her all time inspiration mixed in with a little bit of Eminem and some faint remnants of the works of Edgar Allen Poe. When she began writing, she started in horror but it somehow drifted into thriller. She loves the 1988 movie Heathers. She was born and raised in Michigan but traveled across the country to where she currently resides in Texas.
