Summary:

From the author of the New York Times best-seller Firebird comes this richly detailed historical novel of an unconventional tailor's daughter who is swept up in a suspenseful drama of passion and intrigue.

When a fever leaves her deaf at the age of sixteen, shattering her hopes of marriage, Veda Grenfell turns her exceptional talent to her father's prestigious Savile Row tailoring firm. She matures into a woman of eye-catching beauty, but it is her indomitable spirit that earns her the admiration of Harry Breadalbane, heir to an earldom. But when passion turns to betrayal, Veda abandons her beloved Savile Row and sets off on a treacherous journey into a world of deception, murder, and madness.

    I loved this book. I have a family history of tailors and seamstresses and found it very well researched. At one point I was afraid it was turning into a "romance novel", but if had some great twists and the characters had a great personalities. I finished the book days ago and am still thinking about it.
