    As owner of the Crewel World needlework shop and part-time sleuth, Betsy Devonshire has become skilled at weaving suspicious threads together. Just back from a trip to Thailand, Doris Valentine is eager to show her stitching friends her souvenirs, which include dazzling Thai silk. She also has a small stone Buddha that she agreed to deliver to an antique store in St. Paul. It's wrapped in a dirty rag, which she throws away.

    Story

    Kept falling asleep while listening, or was distracted from the story by the readers intonation. Felt "off" to me.

    In 17th-century Persia, a 14-year-old woman believes she will be married within the year. When her beloved father dies, she and her mother find themselves alone and without a dowry. With nowhere else to go, they are forced to sell the brilliant turquoise rug the young woman has woven to pay for their journey to Isfahan, where they will work as servants for her uncle, a rich rug designer in the court of the legendary Shah Abbas the Great.

    Story

    Found this audible book much easier to listen to and stay focused on, compared to others. The voice was fluid, and the readers accent helped place you. Each chapter made you want to hear more and carry you through to the next feeling and scene.

    The description of creating the rugs inspired me as I worked on my own tapestry, and not having to take my eye away from my work allowed me to be part of my creation while being part of the rug maker's.

    Being in a multi-tasking world, this allows me to do two things I enjoy the most within my limited available time.
