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.

    Moser has captured the American pioneering spirit in this enthralling account of a young immigrant woman rising from the ashes of unforeseen misfortune. I was spellbound from the very first page. Loved the historical details! I've sewn a Butterick pattern or two in my time so it was really interesting to see the inner workings of the company. As wells as an insider's view of Macy's Department Store. If only sales service was as exceptional today as it was back then!

    Annie is a young woman with a lot of potential who pushes ahead with courage and faith in order to follow her dream. There is a certain naivety in the way she views the world at the beginning of the story but struggling through obstacles and hardships take their toll. But Annie is a survivor and she has the love and support of new friendships to help her carry on. Though she drags her heels when it comes to a certain potential suitor!

    There are plenty of stunning plot twists -- some so unexpected that I had to stop reading and get my bearings. The Pattern Artist is the kind of story that entertains and inspires...and leaves you wanting more.

    This review was written for The Pattern Artist - eBook.
    If you are, you have a sort of craving in you to create. You search and go towards things and situations guided by that craving. It may not be something that you conscientiously do, but it does drive you. So you can understand what is behind the decisions that Annie Wood makes. It's neat that Annie doesn't have a very good opinion of herself, yet everything in the story happens because of her and she is gradually shown her strength and worth. If you enjoy fabric you know what a beautiful piece of silk is like. Beautiful and flowing, with many highlights and some shadows. This book is a bit like that. The stretching and self discovery of a young lady in 1911 who comes from a very negative English family, gets a position as a servant to get away and discovers her God given talent. And was discovered because of that talent.

    I am blessed to receive several books to read, and they often get backed up as new ones come along. That happened with this book, it got pushed back and I didn't see it. Things in life happen for a reason, and I read this just when I was supposed to. It's fascinating with God's word how He sends the message that you need to receive, and your eyes are opened to your answer. From Annie's friend Edna: "The Almighty is working all around you if you just open your eyes. He's waiting for you to notice Him" . . . From Sean, Annie's beau: ". . . I need to pray for direction, be aware of the nudges the Almighty sends me, and act on those nudges to the best of my ability. If I'm on the right path, I feel a sense of peace."

    I highly recommend this book. It has a good Christian message throughout, with a plot that has everything - engaging characters, rich and poor, triumph, struggle and pain. Plus a satisfying romance and interesting historical facts about the pattern making and fashion industry. Please author Nancy Moser continue the story and tell us what becomes of Annie, Sean and her friends later in life. There are stories there that need to be told (and read)! I am a new fan. This is so well written it's like a movie. Now I will have to search out the other books that this is in tangent with!

    "I've had so many doors."

    Trapped between the life that she wants and the life that she has, English housemaid Annie Wood makes the most of a trip to New York City; bravely leaving a life of servitude for the great unknown. Freedom, she quickly learns, has its own challenges, for surviving on one's own takes considerable courage and determination. Fortunately, she left her employ with two others, but one of those that they left behind holds a grudge, adding an element of danger to Annie's every move.

    Settling into a modest job at Macy's department store, Annie meets a handsome Butterwick pattern salesman and a kind, widowed seamstress. Those two introductions launch Annie onto a journey of faith, whether she realizes it or not, for Annie's natural ability to create fashion is a rare gift that she barely knows how to utilize. Will her ordered view of life and love fit through the wide open gateway that beckons her into a promising future?

    A really interesting story, "The Pattern Artist" gifts its readers with a glimpse into the world of a young woman who really did discover the American dream.
