I adore the story of Snow White, and Gregory Maguire's rendition is no exception. It's one of those books that draws you in, and when it ends you're left wanting more but fully satisfied at the same time. Beautifully descriptive and imaginative, like a painting. There are scenes that may trigger trauma survivors; personally I see Snow White as the story of a girl who becomes resilient and miraculously survives abuse when it seems most impossible. This tale drives that home. This is a tale that makes you believe in the impossible. One of my favorite reads I will be reading again and again for years to come.
