Eine Locke vom Haar der Königin-unter-dem-Hügel (A Lock of Hair From the Queen-Under-the-Hill) by Barbara Schinko

Folk and fairy tales for grown-ups

Eine locke vom haar der königin-unter-dem-hügel (a lock of hair from the queen-under-the-hill)

The dancer Siobhan loves Thomas the Rhymer, but his heart belongs to the Queen of Elfland. The master-thief Lucas, too, is forced to realize that the realm-under-the-hill lets no-one go who has stolen a kiss or a lock of hair from it. A vow at Midsummer leads to a fiery relationship, a druid wants revenge, three fishermen meet their fate, and Winter falls in love.

Inspired by Scotland's foggy forests and the green coasts of Ireland, Barbara Schinko tells fairy-like stories about mermaids, living fire, and a harper who has to make a decision between two women and two worlds.
