Only $13.90 / page
The story mixes present day with memories of the Holocaust, and is written like “Sleeping Beauty”, the fairy tale. When her grandmother, Gemma, dies, Becca finds several clues to her past: a box with keepsakes, old pictures, a ticket stub, a man’s passport, an engraved ring, and newspaper clippings. Becca also has memories of the story of Briar Rose or Sleeping Beauty, which was told to her many times by Gemma.”
