The people of her village believe her to be cursed and shun her, leaving only her widowed grandfather to care for her. He teaches her to fish, to cast the nets and haul them in, to read the sky and learn about the sea. In classic fairy tale tradition, she is rewarded for her devotion to her grandfather, making for a beautiful ending to an exquisite story.
