From the back cover:
“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 Vincente. But on day a noble entourage makes its way up the winding slopes to the farm--- and the world come to Montefiore. In the presence of Cesare Borgia and his sister, the lovely and vain Lucrezia---decadent children of a wicked pope---no one can claim innocence for very long. When Borgia sends Don Vincente on a years-long quest, he leaves Bianca under the care---so to speak--- 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, Mirror Mirror gives fresh life to the classic story of Snow White---and has a truth and beauty all its own.”

--------

A great retelling of the Snow White fairy tale. It is engaging and the characters are well written. The story is a bit slow in the beginning, but it gets better and once you finish you are glad you read the book.
