From the Publisher:
Twenty years ago, Robin McKinley dazzled readers with the power of her novel Beauty. Now this extraordinarily gifted novelist returns to the story of Beauty and the Beast with a fresh perspective, ingenuity, and mature insight. With Rose Daughter, she presents her finest and most deeply felt work--a compelling, richly imagined, and haunting exploration of the transformative power of love.
Annotation:
Twenty years after her book "Beauty", author Robin McKinley once again rewrites the fairy tale "Beauty and the Beast" in the form of a novel. Told from a different perspective and with fresh insight, this retelling differs greatly from both the original fairy tale and the novel "Beauty".

Praise

Washington Post Book World
"The end of the story is already known, but not the manner in which McKinley chooses to tell it. How Beauty save her Beast anew is both lovely, and different." - Kathleen Karr 12/07/1997

San Francisco Chronicle Book Review
"Despite the complicated, hard-to-follow resolution, this is a charming, novel and earthy version of the old tale." - Alix Madrigal 12/07/1997
