One winter’s night, Molly Ernshaw rescues a baby from the snow and changes two families for ever. The tiny girl grows into a gifted young woman. She dreams of moving beyond ribbon-weaving to designing the hats and clothes the ribbons adorn. One day, the owner of famous hat factories and shops, Samuel Forrester, recognises her talent. Amy’s flair quickly leads her to London and then Paris. But Samuel and his family are haunted by the past that has repercussions for all.
This is a lovely feel good down to earth novel. It is well written with balanced dialogue and description. Also the storyline is predictable but in a good way as you don’t have to think too much. Moreover, the tried and tested formulaic love story works.
