A charming new novel from the prize-winning author of Ring of Clay

From a chrysalis to a butterfly
But can love emerge so perfectly?

From a narrow religious home where makeup and dancing are forbidden, life for Megan Cresswell has always been bleak. In 1950 after the death of her parents, she struggles to exist on her meagre wage as a young paintress in the Potteries. Finally freed from the disapproval of her father, she starts to listen to friends' advice; find a husband or endure a life of hardship and penny-pinching.
Her search begins with the flirtatious Ben but she quickly realises he is a seasoned heartbreaker. Charismatic Nathan touches her heart only to return to America leaving her forlorn. Dependable Terry offers security but has the mother from hell!
After Megan takes an extra job with the wealthy Celia Bevington her life is spent in two worlds, one of refinement and ease, the other amidst the earthy camaraderie of 'the girls' in the pottery factory . But only when the mystery surrounding her inherited silver hairbrush is solved, does she discover a shocking and tragic family secret.

And when she does fall in love
Will Megan have the courage to take the step that will transform her life?
