Price of a Rose: A Beauty & Beast Tale (Historical Fantasy Fairytale Retellings #2) by Byrd Nash
The second book by Byrd Nash in the Fairytale Retelling Series. In this book we get to see a new version of Beauty and the Beast. Beast has three Beauty’s instead of one. Byrd Nash has a certain way of retelling the fairytales.
Sir Griffin has found himself in a bit of a dilemma. He now has a debt to receive from Mr. Parker. His three daughters. The quote I chose for Sir Griffin is: “Do not remove anything from the grounds of Thorn Hall. I shall know if you do.”
Lily is the eldest Parker daughter at the age of 25. She is soon to be married and will leave her sisters behind. When she learns what went down between her father and Sir Griffin, she goes to see what she could do to get out of it. The quote I chose for Lily is: “I don’t know. I imagine a house that size would have one. Give me a few days to get my feet under me, before you visit.”
Rose is the middle Parker daughter at 21. She loves the garden and spends most of her time out there. When she and Lily go to Thorn Hall she finds the roses. She is the only one who has seen Sir Griffin. The quote I chose for Rose is: “Why be a domestic? We may be daughters of a city-man in trade, but our position in society is not so low.”
Poppy is the youngest Parker sister at 14. She’s too young to be married so her sisters try to find what she could do to pay off her part of the debt. When her father questions where the oldest are she tellls him. The quote I chose for Poppy is: “Lily is the new housekeeper at Thorn Hall, and Rose is helping Sir Griffin with his garden. They are paying off your gambling debt.”
Highly recommended for Fantasy lovers.
