A fairy tale lived. A wise, humorous, poignant memoir that shows how fairy tales can be healing. The author changes her narrative of chronic pain by delving into the story of Rapunzel. Reader beware: this is no Disney-escape fairy-fluff. A marriage of personal and mythic storylines that reveals deep truths through mythic imagination and the perspective of fairy godmothers. A memoir filled with treasure that we can all claim, especially in hard times.
