Charles Dewhurst worked with his father at a tailoring shop in London during Victorian times. He was a perfectionist and a solitary young man who accidentally develops an innovative clock mechanism. Their business flourishes when Charles decides to use his discovery to develop an even greater invention, yet he must be wary of greed and jealousy around him. Will he go to extremes to protect it?
An old Victorian object shows up at the British Museum and Mr. Higgings believes the item is closely connected to his nephew's great grandfather, Mr. Charles Dewhurst Jr. He and his father owned a tailoring shop in London, during the 1850's. They became popular because of their unique clothing designs, but to keep up with the demand, Charles created a sewing machine shaped as a woman. She carried a secret inside her delicate mechanism, so Charles must go to extremes to protect her from jealousy and greed. Philomena was born right before the casting of the Big Ben. What is her connection with the Big Ben and why some people believe it is cursed? Follow Mr. Higgings's amazing story as he retells it to his young nephew, Matthew.
