Introduction

Aware of the limitations imposed by her deafness, Veda Grenfell lends her considerable talents to her fathers prestigious tailoring firm rather than submit to a disappointing marriage. Spurning the advances of an ambitious Italian tailor, Veda finally opens her heart to Harry Breadalbane, the unpredictable and unattainable heir to an earldom in the uncultivated wilderness of the Yorkshire moors. What follows is a riveting tale of passion, deception, murder, madness, and fabulous clothes in this richly suspenseful novel that surpasses Grahams New York Times bestseller Firebird.
