{{Robin McKinley}}'s second retelling of "Literature/BeautyAndTheBeast" has much of the same elements of the [[Literature/BeautyARetellingOfBeautyAndTheBeast first one from almost twenty years earlier]]: a merchant fallen on hard times has three daughters, the youngest one named Beauty, who move to the country and pick up the ways of life there, only to get into a sticky situation with a rose-loving Beast. This retelling, however, places a greater focus on the roses and the magic that surrounds the Beast's castle and ends up with a different feel (and ending, although it's still a HappilyEverAfter one) than the previous one.

* FallenPrincess: Beauty's sisters, while still not "wicked" like the sisters in the original fairy tale, are prouder than the sisters in [[BeautyARetellingOfBeautyAndTheBeast the previous adaptation]] and have to learn humility and concern for others below their station when they lose their wealth and standing.

* TheGloriousWarOfSisterlyRivalry: Averted with nearly as much of a vengeance as it was in ''[[BeautyARetellingOfBeautyAndTheBeast Beauty]]''. Lionheart and Jeweltongue start off the novel as very difficult people and do quite a bit of [[CharacterDevelopment developing]] over the course of the story, but even at the start of the story all three sisters get along quite well.

Added DiffLines:
* DefeatMeansFriendship: A minor example occurs early in the story during the journey to Longchance. The men of the traders' caravan they travel most of the way with initially resent the burden of three former rich girls and their nearly-senile father, but gain respect for the sisters after one of the men tries to molest Jeweltongue and Lionheart knocks him unconscious. This proves to be a turning point after which the family becomes an increasingly welcome part of the caravan; the man who assaulted Jeweltongue later repairs their wagon for them and refuses any suggestion of repayment, claiming that no such thing is necessary between companions on the road.

* SupremeChef: When the girls start having to cook their own meals, Lionheart discovers that she has a natural talent for it. With trial and error she goes from producing lumpy but edible messes to a nigh-uncanny knack for creating satisfying meals for whole groups of people from very scant ingredients.
