Beauty in Thorns by Kate Forsyth

A reimagining of ‘Sleeping Beauty’ set amongst the wild bohemian circle of Pre-Raphaelite artists and poets.

Bringing to life the dramatic true story of love, obsession and heartbreak that lies behind the Victorian era’s most famous paintings, Beauty in Thorns is the story of awakenings of all kinds.


"Beauty in Thorns does for the Pre-Raphaelite muses what Tracy Chevalier's Girl With A Pearl Earring did for Vermeer's; if you're a fan of the genre, you'll love it."  Cameron Woodhead, SMH
