Spinning Silver

A bold, breathtakingly inventive new re-telling of the Rumpelstiltskin tale, Spinning Silver weaves a golden story of oppression, prejudice, old, dark magic and three women finding their own power in a world in which they are not free. The real story isn’t half as pretty as the one you’ve heard… Miryem is the daughter and granddaughter of moneylenders, but her father's too kind-hearted to collect his debts. They face poverty, until Miryem hardens her own heart and takes up his work in their village. Her success creates rumours: she can turn silver into gold. But rumour travels fast, far and wide and soon the whispers reach the silver ear of the fairy king of winter himself. He sets her an impossible challenge. If she fails, she will die. Yet if she triumphs, it may mean a fate worse than death. In her desperate efforts to succeed, Miryem unwittingly spins a web which draws in Wanda, a poor girl running away from a house of bitter secrets and Irina, the unhappy daughter of a lord who sees only her price and none of her value. For Irina's father schemes to wed her to the tsar and he will pay any price to achieve this goal. However, the dashing tsar is not what he seems and the secret he hides threatens to consume the lands of mortals and winter alike. Torn between deadly choices, Miryem, Wanda and Irina embark on a quest that will take them to the limits of sacrifice, power and love. Inspired by Eastern European fairy tale, Naomi Novik weaves a rich, multi-layered tapestry that questions the nature of real magic and revels in the power of storytelling to change the world. Read an exclusive interview with Naomi Novik about Spinning Silver.
