The Sewing Place by Joslin Day

Innocence is a precious possession, but as mid-eighteenth-century Exeter settles to peace after The Seven Years’ War, Rachael, who is neither servant nor ward of the flamboyant painter Alexander Trelawney, is destined to lose the one thing that separates her from the whores she rubs shoulders with.

Innocence is a precious possession, but as mid-eighteenth-century Exeter settles to peace after The Seven Years’ War, Rachael, who is neither servant nor ward of the flamboyant painter Alexander Trelawney, is destined to lose the one thing that separates her from the whores she rubs shoulders with.
A friendship begun on the derelict outshoot of one of the three houses that share a courtyard along busy Exebere Street is put under threat; not only by Trelawney’s unorthodox lifestyle but by Henri Latimer’s spendthrift and conscienceless nephew Geoffrey, who is determined to have the inheritance that his posthumous birth has deprived him of. Even if this means consulting with the herbalist Blox.
Will Rachael find salvation in the widower Henri Latimer or will she fall to the bottom of society where her illegitimate birth and lack of family predicts she must? Will Geoffrey achieve what Latimer’s recent injury and subsequent illness could not?
