Roses are full of contradictions: petals and thorns, delicacy and danger, passion and purity. The rose is complex, enduring - and, above all, resilient. Protected by its thorns and supported by strong roots, the rose flourishes in gardens and wild mountainsides alike.

THE FRUIT OF OUR THORNS celebrates girls and women, who, like the rose, are full of seeming paradoxes. They are fierce, sweet, wild, and gentle. They can be cruel, and they can be kind. They can fall in love with boys or girls or not at all, defy goddesses and outwit kings...but also make mistakes, suffer, and grieve. Join them and remember what the poet Rumi knew to be true:

The rose’s truest essence lives in the thorn.

The ancient Greek philosopher Heraclitus is famous for his contention that change lies at the heart of the universe. “You can’t step into the same river twice,” he said, and neither can you step into the same story. Myths grow into legends, which evolve into folktales, which give birth to poems and novels and sagas… and, of course, collections of short stories like this one. Step inside and meet characters - old, new, and reimagined - inspired by the magic and lore of ageless Greece.

This bilingual collection is perfect for students of either Greek or English who want to hone their language skills or for those who simply wish to enjoy retellings of their favorite myths and legends in both languages. Glossaries for each story are included for easy reference.

Praise for THE ROOTS OF OUR MAGIC:

A great resource for teachers and students of modern Greece—but also for any readers looking for gripping stories that will transport them into more magical world. Flamouri’s collection draws on folklore, history, and fantasy, and captivates through her crisp, compelling prose.
