One dress, five women, a lifetime of memories.
Five single, fiercely independent women live together in a Chicago apartment in the early 1950s but rarely see one another. One Saturday afternoon, as they are serendipitously together downtown, they spy a wedding dress in a storefront window at the famous Carson, Pirie, Scott & Co. After trying it on―much to the dismay of the salesclerk and without a single boyfriend or date between the five of them―they decide to pool their money to purchase it. Can one dress forever connect five women who live together only a short time before taking their own journeys to love and whatever comes happily ever after?
Eva Marie Everson is a talented writer, this book as well as previous ones, is so good. The story of 5 women and one wedding dress and the friendships that develop really warmed my heart, I want to read it again. The women are strong and stand firm in a time where women usually didn't do that. I savored each page. This is a book you hate to see end, I'd love to see a sequel.
I received a copy of this book free from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
