Publisher's Summary

St. Paul, Minnesota, 1946: As a child, Shannon listened to her father's stories of a motherless princess who ventured far from her kingdom, connected to home by only the magic of a fine, silver thread. As a young woman, introspective and quirky, Shannon knows she is neither a princess nor an adventuress - that would more likely be her sister, Eliza. But when Shannon barely survives a year in quarantine for a deadly disease, losing any hope of motherhood herself, and when Eliza runs away after a brutal attack, the fairy tale seems all too real. On her quest to bring Eliza home, Shannon discovers a secret child, the love of a good man, and the true meaning of family remade. Despite her new-found happiness, Shannon questions whether the bond between sisters is strong enough to save Eliza.

Sister story through time

The turns in each sister's life are well described and the family dynamics are enjoyable to follow in this tale. Some parts of the story are passed over without much depth, however, overall a good story.
