Bluebeard’s Bride (Mariam Ahmad – May 5)
A tale as old as time.
A young bride marries a man who sweeps her away from her humble beginnings to a life of wealth and security in his expansive mansion. He departs shortly after their wedding – but not before he leaves her all the keys to her new domain, encouraging her to explore all but one room.
As the Bride tours this palatial space, what does she find out about her new husband? Does she discover a kind and caring man, or a cruel and vile being? Is she tempted to open the one room forbidden to her, or does she heed her husband’s words?
