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.
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.
