There she finds the Wise Woman of the Western Wood, revered for her healing skills but feared as a witch

There she finds the Wise Woman of the Western Wood, revered for her healing skills but feared as a witch. She becomes her reluctant apprentice, hoping that this enigmatic figure has the power to reveal her true name and identity. Even as she succeeds her teacher as Wise Woman, the narrator's life remains bound in love and jealousy with the beautiful miller's daughter, who so effortlessly wins and scorns all the nameless woman yearns for. When Aurelie renews the bond between them at the hour of her greatest need, we learn the complex truth behind this simple children's tale

The Return of the Goddess. In her latest collection of poems, Elizabeth Cunningham takes an imaginative leap into a magical world that is also palpably real, a once-upon-a-time place that could exist just after our own time or long ago. Here we meet a motley assortment of people, a temple sweeper, a sword woman, a morose fool, a merry drunk, an enigmatic ancient dreamer, among a host of others. Human voices mingle with those of animals-the mouse who thinks it’s an elephant, a flying pig-and also the voices of river, rain, tree, and stone

This startling new retelling of the classic Rumpelstiltskin story invites us to experience the power of transformation - the heart of all the best fairytales.The spinner of the story begins life without a name. As the youngest daughter of an impoverished family, her parents simply never bothered to name her. She is shunned by her village, not only for her namelessness, but for a mysterious trinity of identifying marks: a moon-shape on her left cheek, a shortened left leg, and a left eye that has no color. Only Aurelie, the miller's cherished daughter, sees past the goblin strangeness of "the girl with the silver eye" to her core of power and strength.Embittered and defiant, our narrator decides to leave everything she knows and throw herself at the mercy of the wild. There she finds the Wise Woman of the Western Wood, revered for her healing skills but feared as a witch. She becomes her reluctant apprentice, hoping that this enigmatic figure has the power to reveal her true name and identity.Even as she succeeds her teacher as Wise Woman, the narrator's life remains bound in love and jealousy with the beautiful miller's daughter, who so effortlessly wins and scorns all the nameless woman yearns for. When Aurelie renews the bond between them at the hour of her greatest need, we learn the complex truth behind this simple children's tale.

My first introduction to Elizabeth's work. This story is fantastic. She holds a rare wisdom and true craft for magic & storytelling. I can't recommend all of her books enough.

The nameless "girl with the silver eye," an outcast, has a powerful connection with the lovely Miller's Daughter, Orelie. The nameless girl becomes the Woman of the Wood, a power outside the community, while Orelie is called to marry the Prince. The woman of the wood is in love with him, Orelie is not.
The gold is spun, the ill-fated marriage is sealed, but the woman of the wood does not get Orelie's first-born--a girl. And yet, in the end, the contract is fulfilled--except that the story is wrong, the one we've all heard, about the spiteful little man whose name is found out. Her name is never known, except by her.
A wonderful, compelling read. Hard to put down.

How to Spin Gold held me in happy thrall from beginning to end--Cunningham delivers sheer magic with this exquisite re-visioning of the classic Rumplestiltskin tale. I didn't want it to end.
