Product description


Liz Trenow sews together the strands of past and present as delicately as the exquisite stitching on the quilt which forms the centrepiece of the story (Lucinda Riley, on The Forgotten Seamstress)

An assured debut with a page-turning conclusion (Daily Express, on The Forgotten Seamstress)

Extraordinary, fascinating . . . deeply rooted in history (Midweek, Radio 4, on The Forgotten Seamstress)

This absorbing novel delves into the secrets of wartime silk production and makes them totally fascinating . . . tremendously atmospheric and convincing in its details, with characters that touch the heart. A book to savour (Kate Furnivall, author of The Russian Concubine, on The Forgotten Seamstress)

A novel about the human spirit - Liz Trenow paints with able prose a picture of the prejudices that bind us and the love that sets us free . . . Splendid (Pam Jenoff, author of The Kommandant’s Girl, on The Forgotten Seamstress)

An intriguing patchwork of past and present, upstairs and downstairs, hope and despair (Daisy Goodwin, on The Forgotten Seamstress)

What a delicious read The Silk Weaver is. I was enchanted by this novel set in eighteenth-century Spitalfields; meticulously researched, richly detailed, the brilliantly structured story shimmered as the threads of silk wound through its pages. I devoured it in two days and was gripped from start to finish. The characters shine too and Anna is an absolute triumph. A fabulous book (Dinah Jefferies)

I absolutely love the details about silk weaving . . . Liz Trenow conjures up atmosphere concisely and brilliantly, with not a spare word to be found. I felt enriched when I reached the end of this gem of a novel, and can’t wait to read her next one (Gill Paul)

Push back the gorgeous brocade curtains of The Silk Weaver's period detail and romance and you find a window on eighteenth century London that, with its prejudice and divisions, is surprisingly pertinent today (Kate Riordan)

I absolutely loved The Silk Weaver. Liz writes beautifully, and I adored the characters of Anna and Henri - their love was so delicately and believably evoked. The background motifs of the silks and the floral designs, and the political/social context which made their relationship so difficult is also brilliantly done. I really couldn't wait to get back to it each evening (Tracy Rees)

Book Description

A novel of illicit romance set against the world of the silk trade in London.
