Front Cover
IAFilm Productions, Sep 24, 2021 - Fiction - 110 pages

How do women really feel? About their mothers? Their children? Their men? How do they feel when men go, or when they stay? How do they feel about being young? About growing old?

In the ages-old genre of fairy tale, Bronwyn Calder explores aspects of womanhood. These stories are fable, horror, science fiction, fairy tales and tales of the unexpected. Journey to other worlds, or to our world turned just slightly, and watch as the Master Weaver weaves her tales.
