Overview

The Hidden Thread is a breathtaking novel about the intricate craft of silk and the heartbreak of forbidden love.

When Anna Butterfield's mother dies, she's sent to live with her uncle, a silk merchant in London, to make a good match and provide for her father and sister. There, she meets Henri, a French immigrant and apprentice hoping to become a master weaver. But Henri, born into a lower class, becomes embroiled in the silk riots that break out as weavers protest for a fair wage.

New York Times bestselling author Liz Trenow weaves a luminous tale of class struggle and star-crossed love.

Originally published in the UK as THE SILK WEAVER

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Trenow (The Forgotten Seamstress, 2014) interweaves several narrative strands into a vivid historical tapestry, depicting both the silk trade and the silk riots in eighteenth-century England." - Booklist

"In this compelling story set at the time of the silk riots in the Age of Enlightenment, her knowledge of cloth and color shines throughout.
