Synopsis

The Crimson Thread by Suzanne Weyn

A retelling of RUMPELSTILTSKIN in a brilliant new setting. It is 1880. Bertie has recently immigrated to New York from Ireland. Struggling to make ends meet and care for her younger siblings, Bertie finds work as a seamstress for textile tycoon, J.P. Wellington. When the Wellington family fortune is threatened, Bertie's father boasts that she can save the business. She can practically spin straw into gold . Amazingly, overnight Bertie creates exquisite evening gowns - but only with the help of a mysterious man who uses an old spinning wheel. With dazzling crimson thread, he makes the dresses look like they are laced with real gold. Bertie would do anything to pay this man back for his help. When he asks for her firstborn child, Bertie agrees, never dreaming that he is serious...
