After enchanting readers with the power of her novel Beauty, Robin McKinley returns to the story of Beauty and the Beast with Rose Daughter-a compelling, richly imagined, and haunting exploration of the transformative power of love.

Beauty is one of three sisters. Their father was once the wealthiest merchant in the richest city in the country. But his ruin has brought them to a village far, far away-and to a tiny house called Rose Cottage. It is here that Beauty takes simple pleasure in the tending of her garden and the company of her family, until her father is saved during a treacherous journey by a Beast-a Beast who asks for only one thing in compensation: Beauty.
