Carolyne Larrington and Fay Hield talk about love and marriage between humans and fairies.

Fairy mistresses and wives, humans captured by the fairies and animal brides feature in tales that address tensions in marriage, the longing to escape everyday life and find love elsewhere, and the sorrowful choices that women who marry away may have to make.
