Every fairy tale must come to an end. In the tradition of sumptuous gothic novels like The Cloisters and The Bloody Chambers comes a dark fairy tale-infused story about a cursed friendship and a marriage steeped in secrets - from New York Times bestselling author Roshani Chokshi.
Once, a man who believed in fairy tales married a beautiful, mysterious woman named Indigo Maxwell-CasteÃ±ada. In exchange for her love, Indigo extracted a promise: that her bridegroom would never pry into her past. But when the couple return to Indigo's childhood home, they find the shadow of another girl lurking in the manor's extravagant rooms: Indigo's beloved friend, who disappeared without a trace.
Faced with his wife's dark secrets, the bridegroom is unable to resist breaking his promise. Even if it threatens to destroy their marriage . .
. or their lives. Combining the lush, haunting atmosphere of Mexican Gothic with the dreamy enchantment of The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue, The Last Tale of the Flower Bride is a spellbinding and darkly romantic page-turner about love and lies, secrets and betrayal, and the stories we tell ourselves to survive.
