I have always
been fascinated by how silk is made—its essence spun from the cocoons of a particular species of moth. Every time I
wear one of my silk scarves or blouse, I am intrigued by its weave and how brightly the colors shimmer and shine. What I've
just recently come to learn about this fabric's manufacturing process and the valuable contribution silk made to the World
War II victory effort, however, could fill a book. Actually, it has.
The Last Telegram , a first novel by Liz Trenow, is set in England during the late 1930s and early 1940s, when young Lily Verner becomes a
weaver in her family's silk mill. This is a three-fold story: Lily's coming-of-age, the many facets of love, and the silk
trade itself--all woven together in a masterfully written tale.
