Promise me you will find the castle.
Promise me you will find the prince.
Ever since she was a little girl, Rebecca has loved her grandmother Gemma's stories about Briar Rose. But when Gemma lays dying, she makes an incredible statement: I am Briar Rose. Bound by a promise, Rebecca goes on a journey to uncover the truth about Gemma's past, a journey that will take her to a Polish concentration camp and the unspeakable horror of the Holocaust.
Jane Yolen has turned the tale of Sleeping Beauty into a haunting, unforgettable novel, both romantic and heart-breaking.
