THE UNMISSABLE UNTELLING OF ROMEO AND JULIET, NARRATED BY ROSALINE, THE WOMAN ROMEO ‘LOVED’ FIRST.

Fierce, feminist and intensely gripping – FAIR ROSALINE takes everything you think you know about Romeo & Juliet and turns it on its head . . .

The first time Romeo Montague sees young Rosaline Capulet he falls instantly in love. Rosaline, headstrong and independent, is unsure of Romeo’s attentions but with her father determined that she join a convent, this handsome and charming stranger offers her the chance of a different life.

Soon though, Rosaline begins to doubt all that Romeo has told her. She breaks off the match, only for Romeo’s gaze to turn towards her cousin, thirteen-year-old Juliet. Gradually Rosaline realises that it is not only Juliet’s reputation at stake, but her life.

With only hours remaining before she will be banished behind the nunnery walls, will Rosaline save Juliet from her Romeo? Or can this story only ever end one way?

A subversive, powerful untelling of Shakespeare’s best-known tale, narrated by a fierce, forgotten voice: this is Rosaline’s story.

Description

Fair Rosaline:

Review

“A brilliant, feminist re-imagining of Romeo and Juliet, Fair Rosaline is a gorgeously written version of Verona from Juliet’s cousin, Rosaline’s, point of view. What does Romeo truly look like through the eyes of a woman on the periphery of the original story? Natasha Solomons skillfully shows us another version of the star-crossed lovers–and the Romeo–we all think we know. I absolutely devoured this thought-provoking, female-centric take on Shakespeare.” — Jillian Cantor, USA Today bestselling author of Beautiful Little Fools

“Challenges classic interpretations of Romeo and Juliet…entertaining and empowering.” —Publishers Weekly

“Exquisitely written, wonderfully lyrical and richly immersive – this a story we all know made fresh and chillingly relevant, refracted through a feminist lens.” — Ellery Lloyd, New York Times bestselling author of The Club

“I have not been able to stop thinking about this book . . . Fair Rosaline is a gripping, spellbinding and wonderfully immersive book – and one that truly makes you think. I would be very surprised if everyone is not talking about it.” — Elodie Harper, Sunday Times bestselling author of The Wolf Den

“Intelligent, imaginative, irreverent. Solomons has created a gripping Romeo and Juliet for the 21st century.” — Annabel Abbs, author of Miss Eliza’s English Kitchen

“Irresistible. An excellent spin on a timeless classic.” — Jennifer Saint, Sunday Times bestselling author of Ariadne
