A big hello to all readers in Germany!

The Forgotten Seamstress has just been published in Germany by Random House and they have retitled it The Forgotten Word – which I think is rather lovely.

Here is the cover. Curiously, the building is vaguely reminiscent of some of the more classical frontages of Severalls Hospital, the former mental hospital in my home town on which I based the setting for the book, although I don’t remember the flower beds ever appearing as lush as these!

As I posted last week, already one German quilter has created her own version of Maria’s Quilt. Let’s hope that Lynne Edwards’ pattern is as popular with the quilting folk over there as it has been in the UK and America.
