A Web of Dreams (by Tessa Barclay)

'A Web of Dreams' is a historical novel by Tessa Barclay.

This is a realistic book set in mid-nineteenth century Scotland. Jenny Cornill learns about men, and grows up discovering new emotions.

All this is within the background of the tartan-weaving trade of the time. Many characters are based on real people.

It was quite readable, and nicely plotted, but it's probably not a book that I'll read again.

Not currently in print but fairly widely available second-hand.
