Bestselling author of The Silk Weaver Liz Trenow revisits the opulence and extravagance of the mid-18th Century London silk trade. 1768, London. As a foundling who rose from poverty and now runs her own successful dressmaking business in the heart of society London, Miss Charlotte is a remarkable woman, admired by many. She has no need, nor desire, to marry. The people she values most are her friend Anna, her recently-found sister Louisa and nephew Peter.She feels herself fortunate, and should be content with what she has. But something is missing. A small piece of rare silk discovered in a bundle of scraps at auction triggers a curious sense of familiarity, and prompts her to unpick a past filled with extraordinary secrets and revelations… “Liz Trenow draws us in so that we inhabit her world, and it was a wrench to put the book down after the last beautifully written page.” GILL PAUL
