From the cover:


"Forests of Silver, Forests of Gold isn't simply a collection of short stories based on fairytales and lore, but a shimmering tapestry woven of family ties, unconventional paths tread by bold women, camaraderie, sacrifice, humour, and wisdom. Collins sprinkles in plenty of old, earthy magic to keep these stories grounded, and enough chilling moments to keep us on our toes - I highly recommended this collection."

                                                                                            (Kate Garrett, author of Hart & Ha'penny and Magical Editor of 'Mookychick'.)


'Collins's witty and imaginative take on traditional folk tales and fairy stories, often with a knowing feminist twist, makes entertaining reading.'  

                                                (Professor Catherine Spooner, Department of English Literature and Creative Writing, Lancaster University.)

What Readers are saying about

'Forests of Silver, Forests of Gold'

by C.E. Collins


I am thoroughly enjoying the book ‘Forests of Silver, Forests of Gold’.  Chris Collins has a magical way with words.  Clearly a very well read lady who knows how to tell a story so that it is captivating for young and old alike.  Excellent illustrations.

‘Forests of Silver, Forests of Gold’  

by Christina Collins

First time collection of fairy tales-retold by this gifted storyteller.

‘Forests of Silver, Forests of Gold’  

is a clever twist of olde wives tale wisdom and modern feminist practicality. 

Ms. Collins’ magic captivates with the turn of each successive page. 

 An alluring read for anyone wanting some common sense with their whimsy.
