Happy New Year!
The book I’m featuring this week is my first read for the year. It’s The Dress Shop on King Street by Ashley Clark:
The candlelight sent a shadow of Rose up against the wooden wall.
I just started reading this one right after midnight tonight and I’m already sucked into it. I teared up before I’d even finished the prologue! I have a pretty good feeling it won’t take me long to finish 🙂
About the Book:
Harper Albright has pinned all her hopes on a future in fashion design. But when it comes crashing down around her, she returns home to Fairhope, Alabama, and to Millie, the woman who first taught her to sew. As she rethinks her own future, secrets long hidden about Millie’s past are brought to light.
In 1946, Millie Middleton boarded a train and left Charleston to keep half of her heritage hidden. She carried with her two heirloom buttons and the dream of owning a dress store. She never expected to meet a charming train jumper who changed her life forever . . . and led her yet again to a heartbreaking choice about which heritage would define her future.
Now, together, Harper and Millie return to Charleston and the man who may hold the answers they seek . . . and a chance at the dress shop they’ve both dreamed of. But it’s not until all appears lost that they see the unexpected ways to mend what frayed between the seams.
Now it’s your turn!
