This is the story of two spinners. The first honed his craft at a stolen wheel, cramping and crippling his leg, turning a room full of straw into a glittering dress for his beloved--and losing her.
The second steals moments to teach herself, moments from her father's eye. The yarn she creates is like no other. Saskia is her name, and she grows up to be a master spinner herself. Nothing is beyond her--until she, too, must spin straw into gold.
And it is then that they meet...
