Historical Fiction • 9.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2019

Listeners feel the streets of eighteenth-century Spitalfields, London, come alive through the stunning performances of narrators Esther Wane and Shiromi Arserio. In this fictional account of the challenging world of the silk trade, Esther Thorel is the bored wife of a master silk weaver. Sara Kemp is trapped in a brothel and desperate to get out. Esther believes she is saving Sara by offering her a place in her household, but Sara proves to be ungrateful and upsets Esther's seemingly perfect life. Narrators Wane and Arserio bring the two characters to life, providing depth to the emotional content and making the listener recognize how much both Sara and Esther have to lose as they face difficulties and betrayal.
