‘A charming historical read that hits all the right notes’ Woman’s Weekly

Dover, 1864: Violet Rayfield leads a happy life with her family in a beautiful terrace on Camden Crescent.

But Violet’s seemingly perfect world is shattered when her father makes a decision that costs her family everything. Now Violet must sacrifice all she holds dear, including the man she loves.

As Violet strives to pick up the threads of her existence, a series of shocking revelations leaves her feeling even more alone.

But where one door closes, another opens, and the embroidery skills Violet perfected while a young woman of leisure win her vital work.

If she can find the strength to stitch the remnants of her family back together, there might just be a little hope after all…

Evie Grace was born in Kent. Holidays spent with her grandparents, visiting the port of Dover and its famous white cliffs, inspired her to write Violet’s story.

She loves reading about the history of the Victorian era, and her research for A Thimbleful of Hope ranged from maritime accidents to whitework embroidery and the dangers of the colour green.

Evie now lives in deepest, darkest Devon with her partner. She has a son and daughter.
