The year is 1502, and seven-year-old Bianca de Nevada lives perched high above the rolling hills and valleys of Tuscany and Umbria at Montefiore, the farm of her beloved father, Don Vicente. One day a noble entourage makes its way up the winding slopes to the farm—and the world comes to Montefiore. In the presence of Cesare Borgia and his sister, the lovely and vain Lucrezia—decadent children of a wicked pope—no one can claim innocence for very long. When Borgia sends Don Vicente on a year's quest to reclaim a relic of the original Tree of Knowledge, he leaves Bianca under the care, so to speak, of Lucrezia. She plots a dire fate for the young girl in the woods below the farm, but in the dark forest there can be found salvation as well. . . . A lyrical work of stunning creative vision, Mirror Mirror gives fresh life to the classic story of Snow White—and has a truth and beauty all its own.

Can't finish this. I didn't think there would come a day where I would say I disliked one of Gregory Maguire's novels, but it is so. This was a strange book that felt jagged and empty. I may someday attempt to finish it, but for now I'm putting it back on my shelf.

I never remember how much Maguire's writing bothers me until I stupidly pick up another of his books.Why do weird (and kinda creepy) sexual undertones appear (often smugly) in Maguire's books? What did having Bianca practically explode with menstrual blood onto the floor and the dwarves add to the ...

I make no secret of my loathing for the Disney-fied version of Snow White. She's sweet, like a heaping mouthful of sugar. Cute little forest animals love her. As do dwarves. (Well, of course they do. She cleans their house and cooks their meals. I'd love my maid, if I had one.) She has absolutely no...
