Wow, just wow. This author manages to spin the tale of 'Rumplestiltskin' into an entirely new tapestry of a story. And it works. The addition of adding it into a historical setting. The suspense and worry that you feel for the main character are great - especially for a story that you don't see get re-told as much as other fairy tales. This is a great read - if only just to see what can be done with a whole new narrative.

Expecting a fairytale I was immediately disoriented when I found myself among an immigrant family in America. But after a few chapters the familiar "Rumpelstilskin" story started to take shape. This is one of the best tellings of that story I have read.

Okay so Rumpelstiltskin isn't my fave fairy tale but wow the Author of this one just blew me away i men it left me on edge XD the idea is extremely creative not many people think to do a story around this time period especially a fairy tale :D for those who haven't checked it out yet you have to read it i won't give away to much but lets just say the ending isn't what you'd expect it to be LOL

I'd rate this as PG soo kids 12 and up can read it :D its totally appropriate :D

really good it's not what you think of when you hear Rumpelstiltskin. It is a historical romance really.

This is a well-written story; Weyn is definitely a talented writer. I especially liked the historical references.

I loved this book but I thought that it was weird that she ended up marring Rumpelstiltskin and that they did not combine their businesses right away and to wait a hole year to get married I would probably die with anxiety. Suzanne took the classical story and put and amazing twist to it!!!!!!!!!
