When Charlotte Miller inherits her family's troubled woolen mill, she is determined to make it a success- and to ignore the rumors of the curse that haunts it. But strange accidents frighten the workers and threaten to sink the business. One day, a mysterious man named Jack Spinner arrives and offers his assistance. "You'd have to be able to make gold appear from thin air to be much help to us now, I'm afraid," Charlotte says. With straw, not air, Jack Spinner obliges. Though he hasn't yet named his ultimate price. . . . Winner of the 2009 William C. Morris YA Debut Award.
