'Tremendously uplifting and life-affirming. A feel-good read that tugs on the heart strings' - Historical Novels Review
One winter's night, Molly Ernshaw rescues a newborn baby from the snow and changes two families for ever. The tiny girl grows into a beautiful and gifted young woman. Although devoted to Molly, Amy has far-reaching ambitions - encouraged by her neighbour's son, Toby, she longs to move beyond ribbon-weaving to designing the hats and clothes the ribbons adorn. Her talent is recognised by Samuel Forrester, the influential owner of famous hat factories and shops. But Samuel is a haunted man with secrets in his past that torture him and his family. His son's wife, Eugenie, is deeply troubled, and when Amy's flair leads her to London and then Paris, Eugenie is consumed with jealousy. Amy's dreams seem to be coming true, but as more secrets are revealed and Amy is caught between two worlds, she must choose where her heart truly belongs.

A beautiful book
I really enjoyed this story and I thought it was beautifully written by an excellent author. She has the ability to get you into the characters to the point you can picture them.
The ending although predictable was described to perfection. If you like period dramas which I do I would highly recommended this book.
