In the 1920s, a woman wasn’t properly dressed without a good hat. Nell Marchwold is a talented hat designer working for a high-class milliner in New York City. Her artistic talent combined with her inherent ability to bring out the best in a woman’s looks and personality wins her greater attention. But a lifelong stutter holds her back, and her boss keeps her in the background. When Nell’s designs make waves at a fashion show, she’s thrust into the limelight. Will she be able to balance her boss’s plans, her own career dreams, and the desires of her heart?
Deep and delightful! The Hatmaker’s Heart takes us to New York and London in the 1920s, into the fascinating world of fashion and millinery, and more importantly we join Nell Marchwold’s journey as she overcomes her challenges, faces her past, follows her dreams—and finds her true voice. Carla Stewart’s beautiful language, intriguing characters, and thought-provoking story are treats to savor. I loved this book!
