The novel was recommended by my daughter Kate 'The Seamstress' she adored it. It is a debut novel written by Maria Duena, set in Madrid in the 1930s. The story is told from the perspective of Sira Quiroga, a talented seamstress who is engaged to Ignacio, a reliable and dependable young man. As Sira prepares for her wedding, she feels that her life lacks excitement and when she meets Ramiro Arribas, a handsome, charming, older man, she is ready to fall in love. I will stop now as I don't want to spoil the story for you although I haven't read very much yet and being honest I am finding it a little bit slow to get into but Kate warned me and said it's so worth persevering with.
