THE FORGOTTEN SEAMSTRESS
Genre: Mainstream, General Mainstream Fiction
The Forgotten Seamstress is a great novel that takes readers from current times back to 1910 London. The characters are strong, caring and well developed, and the descriptions of the handmade quilts will appeal to those who also have a passion for quilting. Trenow has written a spellbinding story that will keep readers up late to find out what happens next.
Maria is on cloud nine; she cannot believe she is working in Buckingham Palace as a seamstress. When she catches the eye of the young prince, she knows she will never be the same again. In 2008 London, Caroline is helping her mother clean out the cottage she grew up in. She comes across an old quilt her grandmother hid away. When she has the quilt examined, she learns some of the fabric is rare royal wedding silk. Caroline digs deeper and what she finds will change not only her world, but also the lives of others.
