"Born into a life of hard work, English housemaid Annie Wood arrives in New York City in 1911 with her wealthy mistress. Wide-eyed with the possibilities America has to offer, Annie wonders if there's more for her than a life of service. Annie chooses to risk everything, taps into courage she never knew she had, and goes off on her own, finding employment in the sewing department at Macy's department store. While at Macy's Annie catches the eye of a salesman at the Butterick Pattern Company. Through determination, hard work, and God's leading, Annie discovers a hidden gift: she is a talented fashion designer--a pattern artist of the highest degree. As she runs from ghosts of the past and focuses on the future, Annie enters a creative world that takes her to the fashion houses of Paris and into a life of adventure, purpose, and love."--P. [4] of cover.

great read!!

A very interesting premise of what I thought was going to be a story of a character who designs, patterns and creates clothing, but unfortunately the author used the idea but hardly spoke of either sewing , patterns or designs. It was more of a fairy tale, I was picturing it as a cartoon.
What was more infuriating is that there was a lot of religious preaching at the end of every chapter. When I read the reviews, there was no mention of this being a religious novel. I was caught off guard.
Not recommended unless it is for Sunday school
