The Forgotten Seamstress
Maria knows she's lucky to have landed in the sewing room of the royal household. Before World War I casts its shadow, she catches the eye of the Prince of Wales, a glamorous and intense gentleman. But her life takes a far darker turn, and soon all she has left is a fantastical story about her time at Buckingham Palace. Decades later, Caroline Meadows discovers a beautiful quilt in her mother's attic. When she can't figure out the meaning of the message embroidered into its lining, she embarks on a quest to reveal its mystery.

A very enjoyable read, weaving past and present, featuring an interesting cast of characters - and a very special quilt.

Great first novel. The story and plot are intricately sewn together. This is a real all nighter. She has a second book out 'the last telegram' which I can't wait to read.

I thoroughly enjoyed this novel, even though I accurately predicted the outcome halfway through. But even that didn't tarnish the appeal of this story.
