Product description

A hypnotic retelling of the Rumpelstiltskin story, set in 1880s New York. A recent immigrant to New York from Ireland, Bertie is struggling to make ends meet when she finds work as a seamstress for a textile tycoon. And when the tycoon’s family fortune is threatened, Bertie’s father boasts that she can save the business. She can “practically spin straw into gold”. Amazingly, during the night, Bertie creates exquisite evening gowns – but only with the help of a mysterious man and his old spinning wheel. With his dazzling crimson thread, he makes the dresses look as if they are laced with real gold. But when he asks for her firstborn child in return for his help, Bertie never dreams that he is serious…
