Greta knows two things to be true. The first: trolls don't venture into the forest, especially during the day. The second: kings don't save peddlers' daughters from those trolls, and they certainly don't deposit them atop royal horses and personally escort them home.

The Queen of Gold and Straw is a romantic fairy tale retelling full of humor, first love, new love, promises, lots of straw, and—of course—gold.
