Snow White and Rose Red live on the edge of the forest that conceals the elusive border of Faerie. They know enough about Faerie lands and mortal magic to be concerned when they find two human sorcerers setting spells near the border. And when the kindly, intelligent black bear wanders into their cottage some months later, they realize the connection between his plight and the sorcery they saw in the forest. This romantic version of the classic fairy tale features an updated introduction by its editor, Terri Windling.

Reviews

Rated 3 out of 5 by from This was good. 3.5 stars. Blanche and Rosamund are human sisters, teenagers being raised by their mother, Widow Arden. John and Hugh are brothers, sons of the Queen of Faerie, a magical land that borders Mortlak, where Blanche and Rosamund live. John and Hugh are half-human. When, due to some mortal magic, Hugh is turned into a bear, he escapes to the mortal world, and John goes to find and help him. Blanche, Rosamund and their mother, meanwhile, have discovered Hugh (and what he is) and are trying to help. This is a retelling of the Grimm fairy tale. I don’t remember the Grimm tale very well, but this was good. I found it a little slow to start and found the parts that concentrated more on Blanche, Rosamund, John and Hugh more interesting than the parts that concentrated on other characters. Once it got going, I quite enjoyed it, though.
