Summary
When Heather Mackenzie’s grandmother, Nan Hughes, died she left Heather some beautiful embroidered flowers like those embroidered on Princess Elizabeth’s wedding dress. Heather searches to understand why her grandmother left London and settled in Canada. She soon discovers that Nan had worked at the house of Norman Hartnell, and that the royals wore designs by Hartnell. Nan and Miriam Dassin, a fellow embroiderer and recent refugee from France, were charged with the delicate details of the wedding dress. Why did Nan leave such a prestigious position and never talk about it?
Critique
