Review by Samantha: “I knew going into this read that it was supposed to be a retelling of A Winter’s Tale. This was reiterated in the first section of the book in case the reader somehow missed that fact. The first 1/3 of the book was quite good and kept my attention. As the book went on it became more forced and less of an immersion into the tale. The last 1/3 of the book felt like it was a major struggle to complete while an ongoing struggle was taking place between the author and the original tale. Overall it was just ok and I think it needs more work to be a stunning book. I received a copy of the book through Crown Publishing in exchange for my review.” Personally I love the cover of this book. I wasn’t able to read it however Sam generously offered to read and review it for my blog.
