I love reading everything from fantasy to historical romances. On a constant quest for more books to read.





Heroine obsessed with wool

A Curse Dark As Gold - Elizabeth C. Bunce

 Charlotte Miller has always scoffed at talk of a curse on her family's woolen mill, which holds her beloved small town together. But after her father's death, the bad luck piles up: departing workers, impossible debts, an overbearing uncle.


Then a stranger named Jack Spinner offers a tempting proposition: He can turn straw into gold thread, for the small price of her mother's ring. As Charlotte is drawn deeper into her bargains with Spinner-and a romance with the local banker-she must unravel the truth of the curse on the mill and save the community she's always called home.


I just simply cant finish this at the moment.So far its plodded along trying to build up a backstory and the worldbuilding.Wich is very bland. As are the characters.

 Also....I swear I was ready to slam this into the wall if it made any more mention of sheep/wool/spinning etc

I am sure since its supposed to be a retelling of Rumpelstiltskin there will be magic eventually but all there is so far is mention of some kind of vague curse between the characters talking about wool.


I dont really like that the heroine is so obsessed about wool.
