Blurb (from Amazon):
The American Dream thrives in 1912 New York City
Annie Wood, the housemaid-turned-pattern designer in The Pattern Artist, jumps at the chance to design her own clothing line when a wealthy New York couple offers to finance her endeavor. Joining the project is Annie’s new husband, Sean Culver, her best friend at Butterick, Maude Nascato, and a mother figure, Edna Holmquist.
Annie and her colleagues give up their careers, risking everything to follow a shared passion: clothes that are both fashionable and functional for modern, busy women in 1912.
Personal and financial setbacks test old relationships and new romances while threatening to keep the business from ever selling a single dress. No one said it would be easy. But the promise of the American Dream holds a deep hope for those who work hard, trust God, and never give up.
The Fashion Designer is the second installment from Nancy Moser’s series, The Pattern Maker. I thought it was a pretty read. I enjoyed Annie and being taken back to her time of 1912 New York City. I found the story to be inspirational and full of faith.
I give The Fashion Designer a well deserved 5+ stars and highly recommend it for those who love historical fiction. I would recommend to the reader to make sure to catch the first book of the series, The Pattern Artist, before reading this one.
