Abstract:

1760s, Spitalfields. Esther Thorel, wife of a master silk weaver, rescues Sara Kemp from a brothel thinking she is doing God's will, but her good deed is not returned. Sara, realizing the Thorel household is built on hypocrisy and lies, tires of the drudgery of life as Esther's maid. Esther yearned to be a silk designer, but her water colors are dismissed by her husband, Elias, as the daubs of a foolish girl. Bisby Lambert is brought in by Elias to weave his masterpiece on the Thorel's loom in the attic. The cadence of the loom calls to Esther. When she sees Bisby at his loom, the pursuit of the perfect silk design leads them all into ambition, love, and betrayal. -- adapted from jacket
