The year is 1502, and seven-year-old Bianca de Nevada lives perched high above the rolling hills and valleys of Tuscany and Umbria at Montefiore, the farm of her beloved father, Don Vicente. But one day a noble entourage makes its way up the winding slopes to the farm ���������������¯���������������¿���������������½ and the world comes to Montefiore. In the presence of Cesare Borgia and his sister, the lovely and vain Lucrezia ���������������¯���������������¿���������������½ decadent children of a wicked pope ���������������¯���������������¿���������������½ no one can claim innocence for very long. When Borgia sends Don Vicente on a years-long quest, he leaves Bianca under the care ���������������¯���������������¿���������������½ so to speak ���������������¯���������������¿���������������½ of Lucrezia. She plots a dire fate for the young girl in the woods below the farm, but in the dark forest salvation can be found as well ... A lyrical work of stunning creative vision, <i>Mirror Mirror</i> gives fresh life to the classic story of Snow White ���������������¯���������������¿���������������½ and has a truth and beauty all of its own.


'Maguire restores the edge to an oft-told tale and imbues it with a strange, unsettling beauty' -- Publishers Weekly 'Wildly inventive...Every bit as good as WICKED: Wicked good, in fact' -- Kirkus Reviews
