When Miryem takes over her father’s position as the village moneylender, little does she know that she will attract the attention of the Staryk king. Because Miryem is not only talented at collecting money, she can turn silver into gold. Before long, she will find herself with the daunting task of saving her land from an everlasting winter and herself from the cold custody of the Staryk king.
Told mostly from the perspective of Miryem (the tax collector’s daughter), Wanda (Miryem’s hired help), and Irina (the local duke’s daughter), it is a story of women who take their own destiny in hand and bind together to unleash their untapped abilities.
Beautifully written and filled with magical elements and beloved and clever characters, Spinning Silver is an enchanting tale and a delightful, memorable read.

I thought this book would follow nicely after The Handmaid’s Tale. In this world, teenage girls are developing devastating powers, they can cause immense pain and even death. Along with this twist of nature, the entire balance of society shifts. And while the first half of the book is definitely interesting as well as empowering for women, the second half exposes how far feelings of superiority will get you. It doesn’t matter if you’re a man or a woman, power gets exploited.

Set in the mid-nineties, where Michael is grieving his brother as well as ten years earlier, the story plays out the circumstance that lead to his brother's death. A short but sharp novel, 'Brother' is filled with detail and emotion.
