Liz Trenow’s life was always linked to the silk. Her family has been related for ages with it. This is one of the reasons how she found a very interesting case that inspired her latest book The Forgotten Seamstress. The novel was published in 2013 and was accepted very well by the readers. Currently the book stands with average 4.5 Amazon stars from 270 plus reviews.

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.
