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.

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…
