Briar Rose by Jane Yolen

Briar Rose - Jane Yolen

This book is a reread for me and I'd still rate it 4.5 stars. I really really like this book! It's the first book that has ever made me cry. I enjoyed how the fairy tale of Sleeping Beauty was used in the telling of the story. It's a very haunting and dark story that I did not expect when I first picked it up.

My favorite quote in this book is:
“Stories," he'd said, his voice low and almost husky, "we are made up of stories. And even the one's that seem the most like lies can be our deepest hidden truths.”

Such a good book! There is content in this book that people who are more conservative will object to and not like.
