Born into a life of hard work, English housemaid Annie Wood arrives in New York City in 1911 with her wealthy mistress. Wide-eyed with the possibilities, Annie wonders if America has more to offer her than a life of service. Risking everything, she goes off on her own, finding employment in Macy's sewing department and catching the eye of the Butterick Pattern Company salesman. Through determination, hard work, and God's leading, Annie discovers a hidden gift: she is a talented fashion designer--a pattern artist of the highest degree.

great read!!

A very interesting premise of what I thought was going to be a story of a character who designs, patterns and creates clothing, but unfortunately the author used the idea but hardly spoke of either sewing , patterns or designs. It was more of a fairy tale, I was picturing it as a cartoon.
What was more infuriating is that there was a lot of religious preaching at the end of every chapter. When I read the reviews, there was no mention of this being a religious novel. I was caught off guard.
Not recommended unless it is for Sunday school
