9780755341726: Mirror Mirror

A unique retelling of the classic fairytale, Snow White by the internationally bestselling author of WICKED 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 - and the world comes 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 Vicente 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.

From the Back Cover:

At the turn of the quattrocento, when the mysteries of the new world threaten the belief systems of the old, a girl with hair as black as a raven's wing, and skin as white as snow, comes of age. The Papal States are ravaged by marauding forces of condottieri, Savaronola is burned at the stake, and the famous Borgia family recipe for poison has to be located in the Vatican files.

A Snow White story of affecting poetry and romance, Mirror Mirror constitutes the world of the Renaissance as a troubled and magical time in which Vatican corruption, Atlantic exploration and conquest, and the secrets husbanded in Byzantine monasteries come to bear on the life of Bianca Nevada. This abandoned girl of Tuscany has had the misfortune to fall under the charge of one of history's most mysterious villainesses, Donna Lucrezia of the Borgias. It's all here: why the eighth dwarf left his brothers, why the hunter spared Bianca's life, and what happened to the deer who gave her heart to be brought as proof of the girl's murder...The novel continues in the spellbinding tradition of Maguire's earlier novels, as Bianca Nevada comes out of the shadows, to ask of the reader: Well? Who is the fairest of us all?
