ITALIAN DESCRIPTION:
L'insegnante Thea Rust, al suo arrivo in un esclusivo collegio nella campagna britannica, non ha idea di quello che la aspetta. Da oltre centocinquanta anni, infatti, la "Casa della seta" è un rifugio per ragazze in difficoltà. È un antico edificio dal passato travagliato, dove le ombre nascondono più misteri di quanti lei possa immaginare. Thea ancora non lo sa, ma il suo destino sta per intrecciarsi con la sua storia. È la fine del 1700 e Rowan Caswell lascia il suo villaggio per lavorare nella casa di un mercante di seta inglese. Si tratta di un mondo del tutto nuovo per lei, e il suo talento erboristico attira fin da subito pericolose attenzioni. Negli stessi anni a Londra, Mary-Louise Stephenson sogna di diventare una designer di seta, un lavoro, fino a quel momento, appannaggio degli uomini. Porta con sé uno scampolo di stoffa preziosissima, con un intricato motivo floreale, destinato a cambiare il suo destino.

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION:

Weaving. Healing. Haunting. The spellbinding story of a mysterious boarding school sheltering a centuries-old secret  by the bestselling author of THE BOTANIST'S DAUGHTER. Australian history teacher Thea Rust arrives at an exclusive boarding school in the British countryside only to find that she is to look after the first intake of girls in its 150-year history. She is to stay with them in Silk House, a building with a long and troubled past, where the shadows hide more mysteries than she could ever imagine. In the late 1700s, Rowan Caswell leaves her village to work in the home of an English silk merchant. She is thrust into a new and dangerous world where her talent for herbs and healing soon attracts attention. In London, Mary-Louise Stephenson lives amid the clatter of the weaving trade and dreams of becoming a silk designer, a job that is the domain of men. Arriving in the market town of Oxleigh, she brings with her a length of fabric woven with a pattern of deadly plants that will have far-reaching consequences for all who dwell in the silk house. Intoxicating, haunting and inspired by the author's background, THE SILK HOUSE is the exceptional new gothic mystery by Kayte Nunn.
