Rapunzel, Rapunzel, let down your hair.

Bitter Greens - Kate Forsyth

Remember the tale of Rapunzel? Well if you liked that story, you will love this book. But beware, this is not a Disneyfied version of the story. This is an ADULT version of the tale.



Told from the viewpoint of the author of the story, the witch and the girl we now know as Rapunzel, this is a fascinating tale. You will be on the edge of your seat waiting to find out what happens.


I loved reading this story. Loved the character of Margherita. Her point of view was my favorite. She is an innocent child (at first) caught up in the strange witchcraft of a woman afraid of aging.


Throughout the novel, we meet a few interesting historical characters, Titian, The Sun King of France and more!


I give this book 5 stars, but I caution the reader, it is an adult book. There are adult themes and situations.
