The somber, hard-working people of an isolated town reluctantly accept a mysterious stranger into their midst. In return, she becomes their new seamstress, working day and night to turn out the plain gray clothes the villagers have always worn. These dull and lifeless garments, however, hold a secret . . . there is something new, in the linings of the pockets.
Pockets is Jennifer Armstrong's classic tale of the transformative power of art and imagination. It is presented here with the author's permission.
