The Paris Seamstress
How much will a young Parisian seamstress sacrifice to make her mark in the male-dominated world of 1940s New York fashion? From the author of A KISS FROM MR FITZGERALD and HER MOTHER'S SECRET.
2015. Australian curator Fabienne Bissette attends the annual Met Gala for an exhibition of her grandmother's work - one of the world's leading designers of ready-to-wear clothing. But as Fabienne learns more about her grandmother's past, she uncovers a story of heartbreak and secrets - and the sacrifices made for love.
THE PARIS SEAMSTRESS is the beguiling, transporting story of the special relationship between a grandmother and her granddaughter as they attempt to heal the heartache of the past.
