Sophie's Masterpiece read by CCH Pounder

Sophie’s no ordinary house spider. She’s an artist and every web she spins is more wondrous than the one before; don’t mention that to the guests at Beekman’s Boardinghouse because they don’t like spiders. No one there wants anything to do with Sophie or her magnificent creations – no one except the woman on the third floor. She’s a new mother “weaving” something herself and when she runs out of yarn, Sophie knows the time has finally come to create the masterpiece of a lifetime.
