Rose is the youngest of seven children, meant to replace her dead sister. Maybe because of that, she’s never really fit in. She’s always felt different, out of place, a restless wanderer in a family of homebodies. So when an enormous white bear mysteriously shows up and asks her to come away with it—in exchange for health and prosperity for her ailing family—she readily agrees.
            Rose travels on the bear’s broad back to a distant and empty castle, where she is nightly joined by a mysterious stranger. In discovering his identity, she loses her heart-and finds her purpose—and realizes her journey has just begun.
            As familiar and moving as Beauty and the Beast, yet as fresh and original as only the best fantasy can be, East is a bold retelling of the classic tale “East of the Sun and West of the Moon,” a sweeping story of grand proportions.

    " My favorite retelling of this fairy tale. "

    " I'm not sure if this story is based upon a traditional fairy tale or not, but it certainly has a fairy tale feel to it. There is an interesting delineation in the story between superstition that turns out to be real and that which turns out to be simply superstition. The author makes strong use of fore-shadowing. Overall a good albeit fairly long read. "

    " All the different perspectives really annoyed me, so much so i doubt i'll ever be finishing the book. It was nearly impossible to read :( "

    " Fun adaptation of a favorite fairy tale, "East of the Sun, West of the Moon". White bears, troll queens, pure fun. She's no Robin Mckinley, but good all the same. Could have used a little less weird superstition, a little more fantasy. Really liked the trolls, with ridged skins and voices like rocks. "
