Product description

One of America's most celebrated writers tells the tale of Sleeping Beauty afresh, set this time in forests patrolled by the Nazi army during World War II.A young American journalist is drawn to Europe and to the past as she investigates the mystery of her grandmother's life. From her grandmother she inherited a silver ring, a photograph, and the traditional tale of Briar Rose: clues that will ultimately lead her to a distant land and an astonishing revelation of death and rebirth.The story of the Holocaust, like the story of Sleeping Beauty, is indeed familiar -- yet such is a master storyteller's skill that along the way we learn the tale anew. This is a tale of life and death, love and hate, despair and redemption.
