When Juliette has a domestic servant beaten for pursuing a young man above her station, she finds herself cursed by a witch to live in a world behind her own mirror. She is unable to leave except on the first night of a full moon.
Juliette is forced to seek what food and shelter the new world provides with the help of a unicorn, a man who is half bear, and a centaur.

A tale of love, friendship, and facing unavoidable challenges.

          "My Thoughts"

What can I say. This has so many books that I enjoyed as a kid. It s was good to read something is good to remind our self's what era we grew up in. I LOVED IT. It reminded me of when I thought I was a princess. I was "Snow White" and "Cinderella" similarities that I edmire. Thank you so much Ms. Jena that no matter how old we are, we had memories as a kid that we can hold on to and hold deep into our hearts and cherish them. The theme, climax, plot, everything "AWED" me. Best book I have read in 2014. I enjoyed the read, because of the value you took your time to write it. It wasn't rush. You can see how clearly and vividly the story is. I love the setting of "London" because its a place I dearly would like to visits one day. The friendship and love was one of the best parts, because everyone needs love and happiness in their life.
