Summary

Don’t miss the next utterly romantic historical saga from the No.1 Sunday Times bestselling author Dilly Court!

She ran along the snow-covered cobbles, gripping her sewing box – fate in her hands…

Living hand to mouth ever since her mother’s tragic death, Amelia sells the last of her treasured possessions to avoid being cast out of her home onto London’s streets.

Her estranged grandfather unexpectedly bequeaths a small, struggling factory making mourning dresses and Amelia dares to dream… Drawing sketches by candlelight, she longs to sew elegant gowns from fine silks and beautiful ribbons for the rich.

As the cold winter wind begins to bite, Amelia’s future hangs by a thread – can she keep her hopes alive?

Great story

I enjoyed listening to this book in the evenings. I found it interesting and relaxing, until the point that the two young girls came together. I usually love Annie Aldington as a narrator, but the voices she gave these characters really grated on me. Forgive me, but they sounded like simpletons instead of children. I would rather have read the paper version because of this, it spoiled my listening experience. The story however was interesting with plenty of twists and turns, and other characters to like and to root for. Will definitely buy more books by the author, and listen to Annie again. Sadly, it took me ages to get through this book due to the voices of the two girls as they were featured heavily.

Simply Brilliant I hope there is a book two

Everything about this story is amazing; The characters and how they develop within the story, the plot and sub lines, the setting and as always the amazing narration by Annie Adlington.

I really hope Dilly Court writes a sequel as there would be SOOOOOOOOO much scope to take this forward and waiting for it would be the only downside.
