Growing up in Victorian England, where her father owns a tailoring shop on fashionable Savile Row, Veda Grenfell and her family have always assumed she would one day make a suitable match. But when a fever leaves her deaf at the age of sixteen, Veda resolves to prove her worth in a realm that is usually off limits to respectable women. Dressing in gentlemen’s clothes, Veda reinvents herself as a tailor to London’s smart young set. Her beauty and spirit attract unexpected suitors, including a young viscount---but when passion turns to betrayal, Veda embarks on a treacherous journey that will lead her into a world of deception and murder.
Gorgeously written, with a heroine of unforgettable grace and determination, “this is a book that grows in your heart and stays there long after you’ve put it down” (Carol Goodman, author of The Lake of Dead Languages).

Praise for The Tailor's Daughter

“A stunning novel about a complicated and beguiling young woman . . . [with] moments of almost unbearable yearning, truth, and beauty.”
--Luanne Rice
 
“Veda challenges tradition to find an acceptable life that includes love. . . . Fans of the author’s previous books and readers of gothic novels will enjoy Graham’s delicious details of high society and star-crossed love.”
--Booklist
 
“The sheer generosity of her invention and her unfailing ability to create believable characters . . . are nothing short of stunning. . . . Graham is always and abundantly a good time.”
--Kirkus Reviews
 
“A great pleasure . . . a rich dance of a novel with every ingredient of the popular romance: near-death illness, adoring older suitor, wonderful clothes, great romantic love, hope, despair, and disgrace . . . and a happy ending.”
--Philippa Gregory
