At the edge of the Russian wilderness, Vasilisa and her siblings spend winter nights around the fire listening to their nurse’s fairy tales and admonitions to honor the spirits that protect their home from evil. After their mother dies, the new stepmother forbids these rituals. And as evil circles nearer, Vasilisa calls on dangerous gifts she has concealed to protect her family.
