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 Italian Wife (2014)
Kate Furnivall
"The Italian Wife has everything: a fascinating setting in an extraordinary period of European history and a powerful love story. I loved this book."
The Devil in the Snow (2017)
Sarah Armstrong
"...intriguing and compelling."
The Hopkins Conundrum (2017)
Simon Edge
"Prepare to be delighted."
Another Woman's Husband (2017)
Gill Paul
"A heart-warming affirmation of the tenacity of human love."
Daughter of the Reich (2020)
Louise Fein
"I adored this book because not only is is beautifully written, it also tells a familiar story from a very unfamiliar perspective: that of a naïve German teenager caught up in the rise of Nazism,and her gradual realisation of the inhumanity driven by Aryan fanaticism. Louise Fein's characters help us understand how so many people were taken in by Nazi propaganda, and the terrible, heartbreaking dilemmas they faced trying to protect the people they loved. This is historical fiction at its absolute best."
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."
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."
