1) What did you think of the book?

2) If you found out that you might be descended from royalty, how would you react? Would you try to claim your place or would you keep it a secret?

3) This book deals with risk and security. Maria knows that she’s risking her job when she has an affair with a man she can never marry—but she ends up losing much more than that. When Caroline loses her steady banking job, she starts a risky but fulfilling career as an interior designer. If you took a risk, what would it be?

4) You can see a pattern for Maria’s quilt and different versions that people have made on Liz Trenow’s website. Did it look the way you imagined? Would you like to make a quilt based on this book?

5) Have you read Liz Trenow’s other book about silk, The Last Telegram? Would you recommend it?
