At only seventeen years old, Lily Rose scratches out a meagre living as a lace maker in Devon, responsible for her siblings following the death of their parents.
But opportunity beckons. Hundreds of miles away, in London, Queen Victoria is preparing for her wedding. She will wear the most exquisite wedding dress in history, bearing the famous Honiton lace. When Lily is asked to be one of the select few to work on this top-secret commission it is the answer to her prayers.
Lily quickly makes an impression, both as an expert seamstress and a natural leader of the women working day and night to ensure their families' survival. But there are others who want to see Lily fail, including Squire Clinsden who issues her with a terrible ultimatum - work for him, and be subject to his unwanted advances, or lose the family home.
Torn between her duty and her dreams of a better life, Lily must remember where she came from or risk losing those most important to her.
