Price verified 6 hours ago
"A powerful tale of love between sisters and family, remade."
St. Paul, Minnesota, 1946:
When Shannon was a child, she listened as her father read stories of a motherless princess who ventured far from the kingdom, connected to home by the magic of a fine, silver thread. As a young woman, Shannon knows she is neither a princess nor an adventuress - that would be her sister, Eliza. But when Shannon barely survives a year in quarantine for TB, losing any hope of motherhood herself, and when Eliza runs away after a brutal attack, the fairy tale comes to life. On her journey to bring Eliza home, Shannon discovers a secret child, the love of a good man, and the true meaning of family remade. But when all is said and done, is the bond between sisters strong enough to save Eliza?
