Spinning Silver AudioBook Summary
A fresh and imaginative retelling of the Rumpelstiltskin fairy tale from the best-selling author of Uprooted, called “a very enjoyable fantasy with the air of a modern classic” by The New York Times Book Review.
Miryem is the daughter and granddaughter of moneylenders, but her father is not a very good one. Free to lend and reluctant to collect, he has left his family on the edge of poverty – until Miryem intercedes. Hardening her heart, she sets out to retrieve what is owed and soon gains a reputation for being able to turn silver into gold. But when an ill-advised boast brings her to the attention of the cold creatures who haunt the wood, nothing will be the same again. For words have power, and the fate of a kingdom will be forever altered by the challenge she is issued.
Channeling the heart of the classic fairy tale, Novik deftly interweaves six distinct narrative voices – each learning valuable lessons about sacrifice, power and love – into a rich, multilayered fantasy that listeners will want to return to again and again.
