Book of the Month: August

Liberty Silk
Kate Beaufoy
One beautiful dress is the key to three brave women's destinies.

France 1919: Jessie is celebrating the last heady days of her honeymoon. But when her husband suddenly disappears she finds herself bereft. Until a chance encounter thrusts her into the centre of the intoxicating world of Parisian high life.

Hollywood 1945: Lisa has come a long way from her quiet, unassuming life in London and is taking Hollywood by storm. But all that glitters is not gold, and as the smoke and mirrors of the lifestyle she so longed for shatter around her there are some secrets she can never escape.

London 1965: Cat, headstrong and independent, drawn to danger and passionately opposed to injustice, has no idea of the legacy that precedes her. Once past secrets are unveiled, she has the chance to find out what liberty really means...

An evocative story of survival, betrayal and the invincibility of love.

Liberty Silk spans from the 1920s to the 1960s as we follow the lives of Jessie, Lisa and Cat. I devoured the pages and didn't want to put the book down as the stories of the three women unfolded. I loved the settings and felt fully immersed as we travelled from London and Ireland to France and Hollywood. Liberty Silk is a poignant, gripping tale that I would highly recommend.
