Description

Juniper, living deep in the forest with her parents, is stunned to discover that the beautiful girl living isolated in a nearby tower is her sister. When the two girls meet, what begins as a fascination and a friendship ultimately develops into something truly sinister. A story of jealousy, passion and power, Beauty's Sister is a dark and gripping reimagining of one of our oldest tales, Rapunzel, from acclaimed novelist James Bradley. 'Bradley's writing is spare and precise, his images haunting, and his plot reimagines the well-known fairy tale from the point of view of Rapunzel's darker, wilder sister... I have read many hundreds of reinventions of this tale. Beauty's Sister is one of the most powerful.' Kate Forsyth 'A perfect Penguin Special.' West Australian 'Utilising fable tropes such as sibling rivalry, childhood misadventure and sorcery, Beauty's Sister took me into its world.' Killings, the Kill Your Darlings blog
