Stolen Childhood and Other Dark Fairy Tales


No. of pages 96

Three dark, powerful tales, as sinister as anything the Brothers Grimm came up with, of jealousy and fear, of age and beauty, of growing up and of wanting to be a child for ever. Duffy's writing is astonishingly beautiful as she seductively draws you in to a shadowy fairy-tale world.
