For Nell Marchwold, bliss is seeing the transformation when someone gets a glimpse in the mirror while wearing one of her creations and feels beautiful. Nell has always strived to create hats that bring out a woman's best qualities. She knows she's fortunate to have landed a job as an apprentice designer at the prominent Oscar Fields Millinery in New York City. Yet when Nell's fresh designs begin to catch on, her boss holds her back from the limelight, claiming the stutter she's had since childhood reflects poorly on her and his salon. But it seems Nell's gift won't be hidden by Oscar's efforts. Soon an up-and-coming fashion designer is seeking her out as a partner of his 1922 collection. The publicity leads to an opportunity for Nell to make hats in London for a royal wedding. There, she sees her childhood friend, Quentin, and an unexpected spark kindles between them.

Come Back to the 1920's by Maureen on 6/13/14
Rating

The Hat Maker was such an enjoyable read, and brought me back to 1920’s in New York City. How different life was, the world was coming out of a devastating war, and hadn’t hit the world depression yet.
Prunella, Nell Marchwold is an immigrant from Brittan, with quite a lineage, who is trying to make her way as a hat maker. She is actually more than a hat maker, she is behind the design, and she is a genius at it. She has been taken under the wing of Oscar Field, and his label, feeling she has hit the jackpot with this opportunity.
While reading this I had funny feelings about Oscar, he didn’t seem kosher, could be wrong and maybe my first impression was off. There is another struggling designer, that you will love, Calvin, enjoy the banter between he and Nell. Then there is Nell’s childhood friend Quinten, he has always been there for her and defended her. So now there are three possibilities for romance, an employer, a co-worker, and an old friend who lives in England.
Once you open the covers you are transported back to a time when woman are not fully dressed unless they have their hats on. In some ways with the new Royal family in England, hats are making a come back, but here everyone wore one. There are a few unprofessional things that happen, and Nell gets herself in some rather serious situations.
Will Nell fulfill her dreams? I also wondered if she would end up moving back to England? Or will she stay with Oliver, and end up as his wife and main designer. Or does God have something else in mind for her? Come and enjoy this different story of a vanishing profession, and enjoy some of the really warm and loving people who are put in her path. I did!

I received this book through Litfuse Publicity Book Tours, and was not required to give a positive review.
