Perfect for anyone who's captivated by The Crown, The Gown 'will dazzle and delight' (Independent)! The Gown is an enthralling historical novel about one of the most famous wedding dresses of the twentieth century - Queen Elizabeth's wedding gown - and the fascinating women who made it. London, 1947: Besieged by a harsh winter, burdened by shortages and rationing, the people of post-war Britain are suffering despite their nation's recent victory. For Ann Hughes and Miriam Dassin, embroiderers at the famed Mayfair fashion house of Norman Hartnell, a glimmer of brightness comes in the form of their unlikely friendship and being chosen for a once-in-a-lifetime honour: taking part in the creation of Princess Elizabeth's wedding gown. Toronto, 2016: Heather Mackenzie seeks to unravel the mystery of a legacy from her late grandmother. How did her beloved nan, who never spoke of her old life in Britain, come to possess the priceless embroideries that so closely resemble the motifs on the stunning gown worn by Queen Elizabeth II at her wedding almost seventy years before? And what was her nan's connection to the celebrated textile artist and Holocaust survivor Miriam Dassin? With The Gown, Jennifer Robson takes us inside the workrooms where one of the most famous wedding gowns in history was created to tell a story of women whose lives are woven together by the pain of survival, the bonds of friendship, and the redemptive power of love. 'Robson succeeds in creating a riveting drama of female friendship, of lives fully lived despite unbearable loss, and of the steadfast effort required to bring forth beauty after surviving war' Independent 'A great tale of female friendship' The People's Friend

Der große neue Roman der Bestsellerautorin. Eine Feier des Lesens und der Freundschaft. Eine große Liebesgeschichte. Ein Buch, das Mut macht. 1937: Hals über Kopf folgt die Engländerin Alice ihrem Verlobten Bennett nach Amerika. Doch anstatt im Land der unbegrenzten Möglichkeiten findet sie sich in Baileyville wieder, einem Nest in den Bergen Kentuckys. Mächtigster Mann ist der tyrannische Minenbesitzer Geoffrey Van Cleve, ihr Schwiegervater, unter dessen Dach sie leben muss. Neuen Lebensmut schöpft Alice erst, als sie sich den Frauen der Packhorse Library anschließt, einer der Bibliotheken auf dem Lande, die auf Initiative von Eleanor Roosevelt gegründet wurden. Wer zu krank oder zu alt ist, dem bringen die Frauen die Bücher nach Hause. Tag für Tag reiten sie auf schwer bepackten Pferden in die Berge. Alice liebt ihre Aufgabe, die wilde Natur und deren Bewohner. Und sie fasst den Mut, ihren eigenen Weg zu gehen. Gegen alle Widerstände.

This book is designed as a companion to the initial years of hospital training for junior doctors in training, including, but not limited to, the core elements of the curriculum for Foundation Training in the UK.
