Beauty Synopsis

A magnificent reworking of the Sleeping Beauty story by a master storyteller On her 16th birthday, the princess Beauty sidesteps the sleeping curse placed upon her by her wicked aunt, the fairy Carabosse - only to be kidnapped by visitors from another time and place, far from the picturesque castle in 14th-century England. She is taken to the world of the future, a savage society where, even amongst the teeming billions, she is utterly alone. And as she travels magically to places both imaginary and real, Beauty eventually comes to understand her special place in humanity's destiny. Captivating, uncompromising and unforgettable, BEAUTY will carve its own unique place in the hearts and minds of readers.
