But 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 years-long quest, 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 salvation can be found 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.Read Less

The way the author writes is so unique, I often find myself rereading passages just to hear his beautiful descriptions one more time. He weaves into his fictional world, real historical figures which takes the story to a different level. So far Mirror, Mirror has been my favorite of Maguires books, all of which are equally impressive. I highly recommend all of his books, but especially this one, to anyone and everyone. No need to be familiar with the original story of Snow White since he deviates from the old fairytale completely. Yet, since I was familiar with the story of Snow White, I found it very interesting to see how he twisted the old tale and gave it a fresh voice. Great book!!!
