Publisher Description

An old tale tells the story of how a little man named Rumpelstiltskin spins straw into gold and tricks a desperate girl into trading away her baby. But that’s not exactly how it happened.

The real story begins with a drunken father who keeps throwing money away on alcohol and women, while his daughter, Aoife, runs the family farm on her own. When he gambles away everything they own to the Duke, it is up to her to spin straw into gold to win it all back.

With her wits and the help of a magical guardian, she outsmarts the Duke and saves her family.
Well almost…

Her guardian suddenly turns on Aoife and sends her on a quest to find his name, the clues to which are hidden deep in the woods, a moldy dungeon, and a dead woman’s chamber.
This is not the tale of a damsel in distress, but a tenacious, young woman who solves a mystery so great that not even the enchanted man who spins straw into gold can figure it out.
Not until Aoife comes along.

Creative twist

This was a great read. An unlikely fairy tale to adapt and give greater depth to characters and plot. Would recommend.
