The Story

The Whispering Road is essentialy made from two stories. The first, written by Helena Nyblom in around 1897, is called The Ring, and was evidently based on Swedish folkore. The second is a version of the story The Giant With No Heart in His Body widely found across northern Europe, but most famously collected in Norway by Asbjørnsen and Moe.
