Opis książki

The richest silk hides the deepest secrets . . . The Dressmaker of Draper's Lane by Liz Trenow is an immersive historical novel set during the opulence and extravagance of the London silk trade in the mid-eighteenth century. 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 . . . I really enjoyed seeing how the author pulled everything together and cleverly intertwined the silk mystery with stories of real people from the time * Jaffa Reads Too * What a delicious read The Silk Weaver is.
