Wrapped in Pink, according to press notes, is a "fairy-tale set in a world of castles, carriages, and fairy godmothers. But there is no evil queen or dragon to slay. What sets the story in motion is a man, Abbot, and his desolation at having born a son. Abbot’s unrequited love, Annabella, swept away from him in a marriage of convenience, bore a boy. It was Abbot’s plan to have a daughter so that he may work behind the scenes to see his and Annabella’s children wed, in order to at least be close to his one true love. Myriam, his son raised as a girl, is Abbot’s last hope at reconnecting with Annabella. But the truth must, and always does, come to light. Wrapped in Pink is the story of that light, and how the world, imperfect, will find a way to interject."
