Publisher's Summary

The tale of the legendary golden flower is widely known. The story has been told many times and in many ways. But always the flower is coveted by an old witch to keep herself young and beautiful. And always the flower is used to save a dying queen, who then gives birth to a princess with magical hair. Not willing to lose the flower, the old witch steals the princess and locks her away in a high tower, raising her as her own. But the princess always finds out who she truly is and manages to defeat the old witch.

And yet this is only half the story. So what of the old witch, Mother Gothel? Where does she come from? And how does she come across the magical golden flower? Here is one account that recounts a version of the story that has remained untold for centuries...until now. It is a tale of mothers and daughters, of youth and dark magic. It is a tale of the old witch.

ok, I cried

Yup, never has been one of my favorite princess stories as I always favored the villains. This story just emphasized my leaning toward the person/persons who were in the wrong. So, yes, I cried for all involved. good story.

The BEST of the series

The story was so detailed and entertaining. The performance was magnificent. Some villains are born, some are made by good intentions with horrible actions. FABULOUS read!!

kinda of depressing

I've been listening to the villains collection and I really think this is the saddest story so far. Gothel's life is one big tragedy most of which she brings about herself. there are so many points in her life that, if she had just done what she was told or advised to do, she may have avoided her fate. it took a long time for the book to run into the movie's plot. altogether I just feel sad for Gothel.

first 1/3rd was great the rest not so much..

I loved the beginning but then things took a dramatic turn when the odd sisters showed up and practically took over. I am seriously let down at the fact that this book about mother Gothel was actually a book about the odd sisters and their inability to make and keep friends as well as promises.
