My review copy probably isn’t even in the mail yet, but I wanted to share this with my readers now. I’m talking about a new book coming out call The Forgotten Seamstress by Liz Trenow, which according to the press release I was sent “unravels the intertwined stories of a modern-day London designer struggling to make ends meet, and a remarkable young seamstress employed by the royal household in the early 20th century who creates a patchwork quilt that is central to her life and the novel’s plot.”
When I went over to Amazon to pick up some links, I noticed that right now you can download the first 4 chapters for free! Just follow this link: The Forgotten Seamstress Free Preview (The First 4 Chapters).
And wait! There is more! You can also go to the author’s web site and download a free quilt pattern. The pattern is supposed to be based on the quilt that is featured in the novel. Cool!
So these are both reasons why I did not want to wait to give some 411 on this book. With my summer breaking coming up soon, I look forward to finding some time for some relaxing reading, and this looks promising.
