Bennett makes the interesting choice of showing this world through the point of view of Isabel Lambert, a 14-year-old merchant’s daughter who is married and widowed early on her way to becoming a craftswoman in silk. Unlike, say, the plays of Shakespeare, Figures of Silk gives the listener a glimpse into the life of the merchant class in this important and fascinating period.

Great Summer Read!
This book was so interesting and the best narrated book I've listened to. Didn't want to put it down until the end. I highly recommend this book! it sticks close to historical facts and the story is very well written.

So Sew Good!
This is a marvelous tale. It's the Bad King Richard, and the middle classes. And most interesting, the middle class people who sold and imported silk. Fascinating and very well done.
