The year is 1502, and seven-year-old Bianca de Nevada lives perched high above the rolling hills and valleys of Tuscany and Umbria at Montefiore, the farm of her beloved father, Don Vincente. There she spends her days cosseted by Primavera Vecchia, the earthy cook, and Fra Ludovico, a priest who tends to their souls between bites of ham and sips of wine.
But one day a noble entourage makes its way up the winding slopes to the farm and the world comes to Montefiore. In the presence of Cesar Borgia and his sisters, the lovely in vain Lucrezia--decadent children of a wicked Pope--no one can claim innocence for very long.
When Borgia sends Don Vincente on a years-long quest to reclaim a relic of the original tree of knowledge, he leaves Bianca under the care so to speak of Lucrezia. She plots of dire fate for the young girl in the woods below the farm, but in the dark forest there can be found salvation as well…A lyrical work a stunning creative vision, Mirror Mirror gives fresh life to the classic story of Snow White and has a truth and beauty all its own.
