"ONCE UPON A TIME"
IS TIMELESS

The Duchess Jessica's childhood began with a tragedy: her mother's death. Her father, heartbroken at the loss of his beloved wife, could not bear to raise the child. Largely ignored, Jessica spent the first eleven years of her life running free on the family estate, cared for only by the servants.

Then her father decides to remarry, bringing an end to Jessica's independence. At first her new stepmother just seems overly strict. But as Jessica grows into a beautiful young woman, it becomes clear that her stepmother is also wildly -- and murderously -- jealous of her.

Jessica escapes to London. Going by the name Snow to hide from her family, she falls in love with an odd band of outcasts who accept her into their makeshift family. But when her stepmother appears in the city, repentant and seeking her forgiveness, Jessica will have to decide whom to trust...with her life.

I have mixed feelings about the end of the book, but I like the liberties taken with some of the other known characters. A fun read.

Very good with a deep and intriguing plot. It was a big change from the Disney Snow white, going deeper into the story. The story has lots of twists that seem confusing at first, but will be revealed soon. I was a little surprised at first that Snow ended up with Raven, but I liked them together. Among the only downsides was the ending.

I particularly enjoyed how Snow didn't end up loving her best guy friend, but went for the slightly mysterious and appealing outcast. (I consider raven feathers a turn-on. Is that weird?)
The use of technology to explain magic was great, but I didn't think the dwarves were represented in this (although if it changed, our mysterious lover would be gone).
The ending was a bit abrupt. Perhaps the last chapter could've been longer and elaborated more on the future?

This was a fantastic book! I enjoyed every last bit of it. I was into it the whole way! Great story though the ending seemed to come to an abrupt halt. Wish the book kept going on.

Outstanding. Tracy has truly come up with an original and gripping story with all the allure of a fairy tale.
