Threads of Gold (Tales of the Latter Kingdoms Book 6) by Christine Pope
What is to become of a girl who’s father gambles too much and lies that she can spin straw into gold to pay his debt?
A romantic twist to the Rumpelstiltskin tale.
Annora agrees to go to the king’s castle in order not to show her father a lier. But once she is sent to her room to spin the straw, how many excuses can she come up with to hide the truth? Why does this stranger come to her in the night to help her spin the straw to please the king?
Annora believes once she has paid the debt of her father, the king will let her go back home. The stranger is smarter than that and knows the king will never have enough gold, no matter how much she spins.
If you like the re-telling of fairy tales with a twist, you will like this. Try to determine who “Rumple” is and what becomes of Annora and her secret of spinning straw into gold. Another great fairy tale twist from Christine Pope.
