The Wedding Dress Maker
In the shadow of loss, disgrace and ill-health, unmarried mother Netta Nichol must watch her child being brought up by her farming father and stepmother. Exiled from her beloved Galloway, she seeks refuge in a Yorkshire mill town where she finds solace in sewing for her son.
With the help of local friends, she makes her dream of creating beautiful wedding dresses come true, believing this is the one dress she may never get the chance to wear; in a time of rationing and shortages, no small achievement. As she begins to win back her self-respect Netta makes one last attempt to claim back her child.
