Review of A Curse Dark as Gold-Elizabeth C. Bunce

A fascinating re-telling of the fairy tale, Rumpelstiltskin.  The miller's daughter is a strong but fragile heroine who must break the curse put on the mill and her family by Jack Spinner.  Delving deep into the mystery of the curse, she has little time to break the curse before Spinner takes away her baby son.  There are surprising twists and turns and in the end, we feel some surprising sympathy for Spinner and her uncle, who has put the mill's future in jeopardy.  3 Elves - Recommended for ages 10 & up
