Lisa Klein creates a new and engaging angle on Shakespeare's story of Macbeth in Lady Macbeth's Daughter. Albia is a fierce heroine for a novel based off of Shakespeare, courageous and witty, though a bit naive. Though the Macbeths are not supposed to have any children according to the play, Albia's story fits perfectly with the drama. This work even unravels the mysteries of the witches and prophecies. I also appreciate how Lisa Klein portrays Lady Macbeth as weak and pained as opposed to power-hungry and manipulative, rendering her sympathetic to the reader. The one disappointing aspect of this book was the timing of the ending. For me, Lady Macbeth's Daughter ended too early in Albias story.
