"The Seamstress of Hollywood Boulevard is rich and vibrant with historical accuracy and female fortitude." ?San Francisco Chronicle I couldn't cook but I could sew. It would have been better the other way around.Trapped in Kansas at the turn of the twentieth century, Nell Plat is seventeen, unhappily married, and the mother of two baby girls. No reality could be further from her secret dreams of glamour and excitement, dreams that tempt her to do the unthinkable; she runs away to the wonderland of Los Angeles and its burgeoning motion picture industry. Nell becomes Madame Annelle, costumer to glittering Hollywood in the Roaring Twenties. But a knock on the door threatens to rip apart the seams of her own carefully constructed costume, and Nell is forced to confront the legacy of her abandonment and decpetion.
