Tess Windsor is a rich orphan whose father wills her the family jewelry business. She must rescue the business— and her family’s philanthropic legacy—from the economic turmoil of the Great Depression, by teaming up with a band of ruffian orphans and an ornery, eccentric, legendary Gemcutter who claims 185 A.D. as his birth date. “The Gemcutter” transports its audience from the lush gardens of ancient India to the snowy mountains of Burma; from the wealthiest townhouses of Fifth Avenue to the poorest alleys of the Lower East Side. It’s a story of love, hope, and magic.
