The Last Honest Seamstress by Gina Robinson is the story of a woman trying to make it on her own in 1889 Seattle.
The story begins with Fayth Sheridan, a seamstress who sews for a living, being confused with the “seamstresses” around town, also known as prostitutes. After an endless string of proposals and propositions, Fayth decides she needs a husband of convenience. One who wouldn’t be around much, who would leave her and her business interests alone, but offer the protection of his name.
She chooses Captain Con O’Neill, the one man in town who has shown no interest in courting her, sure he will accept her business offer.
What she doesn’t realize is that Con has been in love with her since the day he laid eyes on her. He’s willing to give her his name, his protection and his loyalty, even if she doesn’t return his love.
A very interesting story, especially if you like reading northwest history, and especially if you like a great romance.
