This is the Jewish feminist fairy tale that I didn't know I needed. A beautifully lyrical re-interpretation of Rumplestiltskin, this novel is told in multiple voices as characters in a mythical eastern European land fight against the strictures that control their lives and take away their choices. Complex, beautifully written, and completely absorbing, this is a book I will return to over and over. ~ Reviewed by Rachel Person
