My Review

Wow, I just loved this book, these stories were so enjoyable to read once I started I had a hard time putting this book down. Three women one dress are all connected in the journey of Love. Three different times in our history these women tell us their story the dressmaker, Rose in 1958 Paris, Joanie in 1982 and finally Rachel (Rocky) in 2020. This sweet nostalgic book is about how we are all different but still the same and how the love of an iconic dress can affect the lives of the ones that wear it.

I am must say I was more intrigued with Rose and Rocky's stories more than Joanie for a reason that I will not say so I will not give anything away to the reader. There were many facets to this book from mother & daughter relationship, unrequited love, loss, grief, love, hope, self-...
