The Hidden Thread- May 16

I love a good story.
Stories where there's some tragedy, some intrigue, lots of tension...

And this novel by Trenow is just that. The heroine, Anna, is introduced into London society in an overwhelming way. Having lost her mother recently, she's not sure how she should feel about life in general, and to say her Uncle's house and family is unfamiliar is an understatement. She doesn't understand London fashion, and she doesn't understand London societal rules...

And what is a good love story without breaking few of society's rules? Because a chance encounter with Henri, a French immigrant, forces Anna to look within herself and determine where she fits.

I enjoyed the description of the silk industry, as it was something I was not familiar with. The characters in this book are pleasant and I really like Anna. I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys romance with tension. I received a free copy of this book from Netgalley and am providing an honest review, which will be posted on their website.
