Pick a favourite book from the library for a wonderful Mother’s Day read.
One recommended read for Mother’s Day is The Sewing Machine by Natalie Fergie.
This is the story of three generations of an Edinburgh family, linked by the family sewing machine, beginning in 1911 with Jean about to take part in a strike at the Singer Sewing Machine Factory.
Her daughter Connie is the next owner of the machine and, as her mother did before her, sews coded messages about her life into notebooks.
The sewing machine and a cache of documents is inherited by Jean’s grandson, Fred, who slowly begins to unpick his family’s history a stitch at a time.
