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.

So far in the Villains series, I was least impressed with Mother Knows Best. It's unfortunate because I really love Rapunzel stories and Tangled is one of my favorite Disney films. The connections between this story and the rest of the series so far felt forced and nothing in Gothel's backstory made her any more likable and so nothing really garnered my interest or sympathy.

I absolutely LOVE this series! Serena Valentino does not disappoint at all. Another great twisted fairy tale story, I can't wait for the next book coming in July this year!
