Growing up in Victorian England, where her father owns a tailoring shop on fashionable Savile Row, Veda Grenfell and her family have always assumed she would one day make a suitable match. But when a fever leaves her deaf at the age of sixteen, Veda resolves to prove her worth in a realm that is usually off limits to respectable women. Dressing in gentlemen's clothes, Veda reinvents herself as a tailor to London's smart young set. Her beauty and spirit attract unexpected suitors, including a young viscount---but when passion turns to betrayal, Veda embarks on a treacherous journey that will lead her into a world of deception and murder.
Gorgeously written, with a heroine of unforgettable grace and determination, "this is a book that grows in your heart and stays there long after you've put it down" (Carol Goodman, author of The Lake of Dead Languages).
