Welcome to my stop on the Blog Tour for Emma’s Tapestry by Isobel Blackthorn. Thank you to Rachel’s Random Resources for the tour invite and the review copy. Read on for more info and my review.
At the dawn of World War Two, German-born nurse Emma Taylor sits by the bedside of a Jewish heiress in London as she reminisces over her dear friend, Oscar Wilde.
As the story of Wilde unravels, so does Emma’s past. What really happened to her husband?
She’s taken back to her days in Singapore on the eve of World War One. To her disappointing marriage to a British export agent, her struggle to fit into colonial life and the need to hide her true identity.
Emma is caught up in history, the highs, the lows, the adventures. A deadly mutiny, terrifying rice riots and a confrontation with the Ku Klux Klan bring home, for all migrants, the fragility of belonging.
Emma’s Tapestry by Isobel Blackthorn is a really intriguing story about a woman named Emma. Isobel Blackthorn is an excellent writer, who has created a story that really kept me invested throughout.
Emma lives a very exciting and often troubled life in the twentieth century. The emotion and trauma that she experiences is inspiring, because despite the bad, Emma lives.
Emma’s Tapestry is a well composed story of a woman who searches for happiness while traveling through different historical events. I’d recommend it.
