The Queen’s Pearl Necklace translated by Anna Wahlenberg

This Swedish folk tale is a beautiful story about the healing power and importance of shedding tears. Estella is a young lady-in-waiting who seeks to catch the eye of the handsome young king. She meets an old troll woman in the forest and trades all of her tears to become Queen. She later comes to realise how painful it is to be unable to express sadness through the shedding of tears.
