How much will a young Parisian seamstress sacrifice to make her mark in the male-dominated world of 1940s New York fashion?

From the bestselling author of A Kiss from Mr Fitzgerald and Her Mother's Secret.

1940. Parisian seamstress Estella Bissette is forced to flee France as the Germans advance. She is bound for Manhattan with a few francs, one suitcase, her sewing machine and a dream: to have her own atelier.

2015. Australian curator Fabienne Bissette journeys to the annual Met Gala for an exhibition of her beloved grandmother's work - one of the world's leading designers of ready-to-wear clothing. But as Fabienne learns more about her grandmother's past, she uncovers a story of tragedy, heartbreak and secrets - and the sacrifices made for love.

Crossing generations, society's boundaries and international turmoil, The Paris Seamstress is the beguiling, transporting story of the special relationship between a grandmother and her granddaughter as they attempt to heal the heartache of the past.

    This book is a real gem! More than a story, it is an experience of life. The suffering in France during World War II and the destruction of a family by those who should know better. Painful though parts of the are, there is also the underlying feeling of love and hope. I knew a lot of the characters in this book were real people but I didn't realise how many of them were. I thoroughly recommend this book, Natasha Lester is on my list of 'must read' authors.
