Delivering another superb novel Leibowitz has done his many fans proud with a truly exceptional read.
"A Powerful and fascinating foray into the future of science and its unforeseen consequences"
What do you do when you are alone, and have nothing to blame but your own actions? Between the scandel of her sister running away and her own casual cruelty, Isabella is left alone and isolated, her only options to fall deeper into the abyss of despair... or to rise above her past and change for the better. An engaging side-story to the Timeless Tales, Modern Messages series, this unique re-imagining of the timeless 'Beauty and the Beast' will leave readers longing for more.
Drawing on a plethora of timeless and much loved fairy-tale characters Beautiful, Inside and Out is the fourth release in Natasja Rose’s Timeless Tales, Modern Morals series and it’s sure to meet the expectations of her readers. There is always a risk in rewriting a fairytale in that it becomes overladen with old clichés and archetypes but Rose has approached all her novels in this series with intelligence and reverence. This time around the focus is on the estranged relationship between Sophia and Isabella d’Argent with cameo appearances from Jean Bete and his niece Belle from the much-loved classic Beauty and The Beast. Fairy tales have always been extremely moral in their demarcation between good and evil, right and wrong and Rose taps into these powerful narratives to encourage us to reflect on a range of human experiences. But more importantly, she provides us with a form of expression that not only allows us to shed light on our own lives but the relationships we have with those around us.
Written in Rose's own imitable style Beautiful, Inside and Out proves another gem of a release in a wonderfully imagined series and is highly recommended.
