Liz_Trenow

– What is your next book The Forgotten Seamstress about?
– At its simplest, the book is about how the events of the past reverberate into the present and future. In this case, the past events are the story of an extraordinary woman, Maria, growing up in the early 20th century. Like so many women of the time, the path of her life is very much in the hands of others. But she uses the one power she has – her ability to sew beautiful things – to tell her story, through a quilt.
The present and future are embodied in the character of Caroline, a thirty-something metropolitan woman who, like many of today’s women, has almost too many choices. But her life is at a crossroads – her relationship has finished and she’s been made redundant from her well-paid but soulless job – and it takes the distraction of inheriting the quilt, and unearthing its story, for her to discover what she really wants from life.
