Mothers in the world of fairy tales are often considered to be an endangered species. This Mother’s Day special is a Scottish story of a mother’s determination, her courage, and endurance to reunite with her baby.
For mothers it isn’t easy to have adventures of your own when there’s children to look after but what makes the mother in our story magnificent is how she rises to the occasion anyway. The young mother won her baby back from a whole court of fairies had the odds stacked against her in so many different ways. It’s worth looking for incredible mothers in stories; in searching, we find treasures.
