Award-winning, Australian born author Dr Kate Forsyth is back with her highly anticipated new novel Beauty In Thorns, which tells the extraordinary love story behind Edward Burne-Jones's famous "Sleeping Beauty" painting.

Told in the voices of four women - Lizzie Siddal, Janey Morris, Georgie Burne-Jones and her daughter Margot - Beauty in Thorns brings to life the dramatic true story of love, desire, obsession and tragedy that lies behind the creation of the Victorian era's most famous painting.

Kate wrote her first novel at the age of seven, and has since sold more than a million copies around the world. Recently voted one of Australia’s Favourite 15 Novelists, Kate Forsyth has been called ‘one of the finest writers of this generation’.
