Once a thread is pulled, everything unravels...

The seamstress

As the Dutch flag is torn down and replaced with Nazi swastikas, young Hilde Zontag is compelled to resist the Germans only to discover her beloved father's collaboration. This shocking betrayal threatens to erode the trust between Hilde and the boy she loves. So when her father warns there's no resistance without blood, Hilde wonders if her choices will start-or stop-the bleeding.

The chatelaine

When the ancestral home she has sacrificed everything for is seized by the Nazis, Lady Astrid ignores her unwanted guests until she's forced to dress up and cooperate to save her estate from ruin. She believes she's making the best of things, but her children's mysterious tutor-a refugee she's inexplicably drawn towards-knows all too well that it takes more than new clothes to survive a war.

As deception becomes reflex, these unlikely allies must choose between following the patterns of the past or stitching together a future of their own making.
