Publisher's Description

Can a lowly housemaid realize her own American dream?
 
Born into a life of hard work, English housemaid Annie Wood arrives in New York City in 1911 with her wealthy mistress. Wide-eyed with the possibilities America has to offer, Annie wonders if there’s more for her than a life of service.

Annie chooses to risk everything, taps into courage she never knew she had, and goes off on her own, finding employment in the sewing department at Macy’s. While at Macy’s Annie catches the eye of a salesman at the Butterick Pattern Company. Through determination, hard work, and God’s leading, Annie discovers a hidden gift: she is a talented fashion designer—a pattern artist of the highest degree.

As she runs from ghosts of the past and focuses on the future, Annie enters a creative world that takes her to the fashion houses of Paris and into a life of adventure, purpose, and love.

Editorial Reviews

"The Pattern Artist is a compelling story of the human spirit’s longings and dreams, written with Nancy’s usual excellence that I’ve enjoyed in her other books. The character travels from potential to purpose as she journeys through uncertainty, courage, and faith. This is a journey that can parallel the reader’s life-journey, containing a blend of boldness, reluctance, failure, success, tragedy, and triumph while learning to trust others and God. . . . Nancy never disappoints with her stories. She’s an excellent storyteller whose intriguing characters delight, teach, and entertain."
–Yvonne Lehman, author of 57 novels including Hearts that Survive—A Novel of the Titanic

"The Pattern Artist kept me reading long into the night. When I should have been sleeping I couldn’t resist turning the next page to see what would happen next. This book is filled with fascinating twists that intersect with actual historical events of the time. Altogether one of the best books I’ve read this year!"
—Hannah Alexander, author of The Healing Touch Series

"Rich in historical detail and compelling characters, Nancy Moser’s The Pattern Artist takes readers into the fascinating life of a young immigrant woman who attempts to find love as she forges a new life in the world of fashion and design. It’s a sweeping, strong story that you won’t put down until you’ve read the final page."
—Judith Miller, award-winning author of the Refined by Love series

"Delightful! The Pattern Artist is a story of determination through adversity, a plucky heroine with an expert eye for New York fashion, and an inspiring message that it’s never too late to get out there and chase a dream." 
 —Kristy Cambron, award-winning author of The Illusionist’s Apprentice and the Hidden Masterpiece series 

"The romance, intrigue, and rich historical detail of The Pattern Artist create a mesmerizing novel that grabbed me from the first page and never let go. Moser’s storytelling ability is second to none, and her novels are on my must-read list. Highly recommended!"
—Colleen Coble, author of Twilight at Blueberry Barrens and the Hope Beach series

"This novel has a lot of fun historical references, such as to the Titanic, Macy's department store and many more. The romance is the backstory of the novel, and it plays a big part in the overall plot."


"An inspiring read of the American Dream from a woman’s perspective, complete with historical details of the original Macy’s, the Butterick pattern company, and even the Titanic."

"Nancy Moser’s novel, The Pattern Artist, is a feel-good type of story. This is a vibrant story, full of real-life characters and events. A pleasure to read."

A well-woven story full of rich details about the early clothing industry.
