Synopsis

'What some might call beauty, I find monstrous'

In the age of the Faerie Queene, Elizabeth I, Lord Francis Rodermere starts to lay waste to a forest.

Furious, the sorceress who dwells there scrawls a curse into the bark of the first oak he fells:

A faerie boy will be born to you whose beauty will be your death.

Ten years later, Lord Rodermere's son, Beau is born - and all who encounter him are struck by his great beauty.

Meanwhile, many miles away in a London alchemist's cellar lives Randa - a beast deemed too monstrous to see the light of day.

And so begins a timeless tale of love, tragedy and revenge.

A stunning retelling of Beauty and the Beast

The original Harper Brothers Company was established in New York City in 1817 and over the years published the works of Mark Twain, the Bronte Sisters, Thackeray, Dickens, John F Kennedy and Martin Luther King Jr. In 1987, Harper & Row, as it had then become, was acquired by News Corporation.
