One winter’s night, Molly Ernshaw rescues a newborn baby from the snow and changes two families for ever. The tiny girl grows into a beautiful and gifted young woman. Although devoted to Molly, Amy longs to move beyond ribbon-weaving to designing the hats and clothes the ribbon adorns. Her talent is recognised by Samuel Forrester, the influential owner of famous hat factories and shops. But Samuel is a haunted man with secrets in his past. His son’s wife, Eugenie, is deeply troubled, and when Amy’s flair leads her to London and then Paris, Eugenie is consumed with jealousy. Amy’s dreams seem to be coming true, but as more secrets are revealed Amy must choose where her heart truly belongs.
