About this book
What if Ophelia, the tragic young waif of Shakespeare's Hamlet, didn't die? Here, Lisa Klein reimagines the bard's great tragedy with Ophelia at its centre. Ages: 12+.
She is young, beautiful, and desperately in love with a man who cannot return her affections without arousing suspicion. And so they meet in secret, embracing in stairwells and castle turrets, murmuring each other's names in hushed voices, reaching passionately for each other under the cover of darkness.
