Why This Must Be Read: Author's summary: In the palace she’d grown up in, when Miranda said, “I’m hungry,” food bustled into the room of its own will. The sheets pulled back on her bed. She wore what she wanted. She slept when she was tired and she ate when she was hungry. She ran when she wanted to run and she was still when she wanted to be still.
Milan was not much like that.
The Tempest is one of my favorite Shakespeare plays but I honestly have never thought about what life must have been like for Miranda after she left the island. This story is told from Miranda’s pov and the author does a brilliant job of conveying the culture shock she goes through. What I love is the journey Miranda goes on to find herself and her place in this new world.
