An unthinkable danger. An unexpected choice. Annabel, once the daughter of a wealthy merchant, is trapped in indentured servitude to Lord Ranulf, a recluse who is rumored to be both terrifying and beastly.

As Annabel struggles to confront her feelings, she is involved in a situation that could place Ranulf in grave danger.

0nce upon a time a miller's daughter was given an impossible task by a cruel and greedy king. She had to spin straw into gold. And who should show up to help her but an odd little man named Rumpelstiltskin.

According to tradition, the gold-bedazzled king and the miller's daughter are wed. But wait just a minute! This king is definitely not husband material, and there's someone else who is -- a hardworking guy who's supportive and nice looking, and who really comes through in a pinch.

Why not marry Rumpelstiltskin?

In Diane Stanley's merry rethinking of the traditional tale, Rumpelstiltskin and the miller's daughter are wed...and then sixteen years later their only daughter is stuck in the same dilemma: She's been locked in a room full of straw to spin for a greedy king! She could call for help from her father, but this fairy-tale heroine has some canny plans of her own.

How Rumpelstiltskin's daughter sets things to rights in the troubled kingdom, while achieving a unique place for herself, makes for a wise and witty tale of kindness and cleverness rewarded. Diane Stanley's wickedly funny text and zesty illustrations put a delightful new spin on a classic fairy tale.

Rumpelstiltskin's daughter may not be able to spin straw into gold, but she is more than a match for a monarch whose greed has blighted an entire kingdom.

Life is finally looking up for forty-two-year-old Velda, the only underachiever in the Wu family of wunderkinds. Her supervisor is recommending her for a promotion in the law firm where she's been a paralegal for seven years—and she's finally met someone who loves her for who she is.

But such good fortune is not her fate, as her mother, the formidable Dora Wu, keeps telling her. Dora has never supported Velda's efforts, continually undermining her daughter by reminding her of an old Chinese fortuneteller’s grim predictions.

Set in Oakland, California, this is the story of two strong individuals—a middle-aged woman and her mother—and the conflict that ensues when the beliefs and mores of two different cultures and generations intersect. A distinctly American fairy tale, VELDA is about a woman who struggles to overcome obstacles from her past and her present, an ordinary woman who dares to believe in her own happily ever after.

EXCERPTS:

“Open your mouth. Stick out your tongue.” The old woman leaned in, her hoarse voice heavy with a Chinese accent. […]

“Maybe you okay,” she said. “And sometimes maybe not so okay. […] Learn to accept your fate […] even if not so good.” She grimaced, widening her thin, gray lips to expose pale pink gums and a long fang of a front tooth, dangling like a macabre ornament.

Velda’s eyes shot open. Fate? She didn’t even know what fate was, and what exactly did the old hag mean by “not so good”?

Her heart thumped against her small chest. She caught another whiff of decaying breath. She was going to be sick, possibly even throw up on the fortuneteller’s faded red silk slippers.

Velda turned to her mother, silently pleading for an explanation or at the very least, a sense of comfort and security. But her mother simply opened her purse and counted out some bills, handing them over with a small nod of thanks.

The fortuneteller folded the stack of bills into thirds and stuffed them into the frayed pocket of a sweater she wore layered between two other tattered sweaters.

Velda stepped toward her mother and held out her hand, desperate for some contact, a consoling touch, but her mother just stood there, coldly assessing [her]. She wore the satisfied smirk of someone who’d gotten exactly what she’d expected and wanted.

Velda slowly retracted her hand and bit her lower lip to stop its quivering. She’d never felt so afraid, abandoned, and alone.

Thirty-five years later...

Velda Wu walked through the lobby and opened the glass door. “Mom, Dad, what’re you doing here?” […]

“You cannot go,” [Dora Wu] shouted and took a step forward, her voice bouncing off the tiled walls surrounding them.

“Why not?”

“It is not supposed to be this way for you, Velda. You cannot go to Brian,” Dora continued. “He is not for you.”

“He is, Mom, and do we really have to do this now?” She refused to let them alter her plans. […]

“What if you go…and then he introduce you to his family later on…and what if they say they do not like you?” Dora posed the question with a raised index finger. “If they do not like you, then they decide your fate for you. It is better not to go. Stay here.” […]

Dora Wu pressed her lips tightly together, turned to her husband, and then tilted her head back towards Velda, motioning for him to take a stab at the problem at hand.

“Velda, you have to be practical,” her father said. “Brian is a nice-looking man. He may decide in a little while that he wants someone younger…someone better-looking...I don’t want you to get hurt again,” he added quietly, his eyes urging Velda to understand.

Velda stepped back, unnerved. “I have a real chance at a relationship, a real life, and you’re both standing here telling me to give it all up?”

“Yes, you give up,” Dora Wu said, nodding emphatically. “That is your fate.”

Testing the relationship between feminist psychoanalytic theory and feminist retellings of fairy tales and myths in the 1970s and 1990s, Schanoes shows that these contemporaneous developments in theory and art advance complementary interpretations of the same themes. Her book posits a new model that emphasizes the interdependence of theory and art and challenges the notion that literary revision involves a masculinist struggle with the writer's artistic forbearers.
