Step in to Threads, in Schenectady…

…a different kind of clothing store. You can buy your prom or wedding dress there, or a baby’s christening gown, but if the women who work there sew it, you could find your future woven into the fabric.

Margot Hawkes returns to America from Saudi Arabia with great expectations: she’ll be free to attend college while her younger sister stays with their Aunt Edith and finishes high school. Aged 19, Margot has been looking after her sister and her father’s house since their mother abandoned them, and she’s longing for less responsibility.

But instead of Aunt Edith meeting them at the airport, Margot finds herself attending her funeral. The women of Threads, Edith’s store, are there as well. Sympathetic, solicitous, concerned for the girls, they are friendly…

Until Edith’s will is read.
