Briar Rose

by Jane Yolen


Briar Rose

An incredibly poignant retelling of the tale of Briar Rose (AKA Sleeping Beauty), interweaving the themes of that story with a tale of the Holocaust. The story is pitch perfect and one of the strongest in editor Terri Windling’s Fairy Tale Series (other notable authors of books in the series include Stephen Brust, Charles de Lint, Kara Dalkey and Pamela Dean). In a similar vein, I’d also recommend the short story collections Windling edited with Ellen Datlow.
