About the eBook

'Beautiful story... historical fiction at its best... The fashion world, the characters in WWII and present times come alive. A book that drew me in and kept me turning the pages' Reader review, five stars

1942, Paris: Working in her father's tailors shop, Nathalie Leroux dreams of being a famous designer. But with her beloved city under Nazi occupation, her dreams must be put on hold for survival during these dark days.

When the Germans take away the person she loves most, Nathalie accepts a dangerous mission from the Resistance. One that will use her skills as a dressmaker and put her at the heart of the Nazi high command in the Ritz hotel.

With every stitch she makes, Nathalie moves closer to avenging those she loves and freeing her country from tyranny. But it will also put her in terrible danger...

2022, England: When Darcie takes possession of an old suitcase, abandoned at a railway station, she doesn't know what to expect. Opening the stiff clasps, she discovers a beautiful silk evening dress from the 1940s and a notebook full of sketches. Written inside is the name: Nathalie Leroux.

Who was Nathalie? Why did she leave this at the station eighty years ago? And what stopped her from returning for it?

Darcie's quest for answers will draw her into the dangerous world of the French Resistance. But is Darcie prepared for what she will find? And for the power of Nathalie's secrets to change her world forever...

A heartbreaking and epic wartime story of the bravery of ordinary women and the enduring power of love. Fans of Kate Quinn, Pam Jenoff and Suzanne Goldring will be hooked from the very first page.
