English synopsis, series presentation

The third installment of the internationally bestselling Silk Sisters series, a stunning romantic, feel-good adventure! Bridgerton meets Jane Austen’s Emma with Nordic heroines!

Mariam, the daughter of a highborn Persian lady and a Swedish tradesman, gets swept away in a breath-taking romantic adventure after she moves to Porvoo in the midst of Finnish War and becomes the talk of the whole city.

When her brother is arrested in Sweden, Mariam doesn’t hesitate in running to his aid. She’s read Jane Austen’s new novel Emma, whose independent heroine encourages Mariam to act. A mysterious baron promises to help her, but can she trust him?  And why do his silvery eyes remind Mariam of something?

The Silk Sisters series has dazzled readers in Finland and abroad. Don a silk dress and let the story sweep you away!

Sara Medberg’s series from the Nordic manors and courts of the 19th Century is as fascinating as it is entertaining. The author’s knowledge about the historical period makes a solid base for the story, but does not stop the excitement, drama and desire from flowing through the pages. I am thrilled to be able to share these books with Norwegian lovers of historical feelgood and romance.
