From the author of the New York Times bestseller 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. 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.

Listener Opinions

    " My favorite book of the last few months. Great story--I never knew where it was going and was completely enthralled. It wasnt amazing writing but I felt she wrote the romance well. Very clean. Frankly, I can't think of anything I didn't like. 4.5 stars. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Andrea | 2/12/2014

    " Borrowed from Mary, a good old fashioned story. No real twists or turns... the kind of book you read in h.school english. I liked the story, which seemed epic in its telling. But a bit predictable and hard to get sucked into. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jen | 2/12/2014

    " Excellent historical romance with a touch of Pride and Prejudice. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amber | 1/29/2014

    " I was really surprised how much I enjoyed this book. Wonderful, rich detail and I was really able to relate to the main character. It was one of those that I couldn't wait to find out the ending, but I hated to see it end. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Brandi | 1/22/2014

    " This novel sounded interesting and I am interested in historical novels, but it wasn't as good as expected to be. Some parts were interesting, but my mind kept wandering. I was expecting another "Winter Rose" and was disappointed. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Pam | 1/20/2014

    " A charming story that has a great deal of unfulfilled potential. The jacket makes the book sound more exciting than it is, like it moves more quickly from exciting event to event, but it reads more like a diary of an uncommon woman during the Victorian period. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Heidi Nelson | 1/8/2014

    " This book started a bit slow to me, but once I got in to it I loved it! It seemed kind of like a modern Jane Austen to me. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Linnja (Lynn) | 12/28/2013

    " Loved this book but wasn't crazy about the ending. "

    " I listened to this as an audio book...not recommended for children, though. :) I loved the first 2/3, but thought the ending was a little hard to believe. LOVED the main character. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jennifer | 12/8/2013

    " A nice diversion. I love the imagery that Graham conjures up with her descriptions of the fabric. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Christie | 11/25/2012

    " This was alright. I enjoyed the story, but it could have used an edit. It just kept going.... Perhaps we didn't need her *whole* life. There is anything particularly compelling here in terms of craft, characterization or theme. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Christy | 10/16/2012

    " Would have given it 4 stars had I not found myself skimming the tailoring descriptions to get to the story. Otherwise a really good book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Robin | 12/15/2010

    " I listened to this book and it was a nice little love story from the 1800's. I was able to vacuum, run the blender and disposal, and lose concentration and still follow the story. "
