Liz Trenow

Liz Trenow's family have been silk weavers for nearly three hundred years, and she grew up in the house next to the silk mill which provided the inspiration for The Last Telegram, and which still operates today.

Instead of becoming a weaver, Liz worked for many years as a journalist for national and regional newspapers, and for BBC radio and television news, and is now a full time writer.

Liz Trenow recommends
The Manhattan Girls (2022)
Gill Paul
"If ever we needed escapism, it is now, and The Manhattan Girls does that perfectly, whisking you instantly away to the glittering world of 1920s New York... The story slips seamlessly between fact and fiction, evoking their world so wonderfully... A sparkling read, in so many ways!"
Daughters of War (2021)
(Daughters of War, book 1)
Dinah Jefferies
"As layers of long-hidden family secrets emerge, you are sure to be hooked to the very last page."
The Rose Garden (2021)
Tracy Rees
"I simply loved The Rose Garden. The setting of Victorian London has a Dickensian feel but, unlike Dickens, Tracy Rees peoples her city with a compelling cast of women characters battling poverty, class and gender inequality. The voice of poor but sparky Mabs will remain with me for a long time - she is a terrific creation."
