On Monday the 9th of December I'm delighted to be a part of the blog tour for Liz Trenow's new novel 'The Forgotten Seamstress'!
It is 1910 and Maria, a talented young girl from the East end of London, is employed to work as a seamstress for the royal family. As an attractive girl, she soon catches the eye of the Prince of Wales and she in turn is captivated by his glamour and intensity.
But careless talk causes trouble and soon Maria’s life takes a far darker turn. Disbelieved and dismissed she is thrown into a mental asylum, shut away from the real world with only her needlework for company.
Can a beautiful quilt, discovered many years later, reveal the truth behind what happened to Maria?
Be sure to check back on the 9th of December to read more about 'The Forgotten Seamstress'! :)
