What's the Story?

I'm on a break from blogging until after Easter. Just checking in to wish everyone a Happy Easter, and tell you about the wonderful uplifting novel you see above.

I read A Vintage Affair by Isabel Wolff last year and am reading it again. Not only about vintage fashion, A Vintage Affair has romance, wit, warmth and intrigue. Love it!

Here's the blurb from A Vintage Affair:

"Every dress has a history, and so does Phoebe...

Phoebe Swift always dreamt of opening her own vintage dress shop. She imagined every detail, from the Vivienne Westwood skirts hanging next to satin gowns, to sequinned prom dresses adorning the walls.

At the launch of Village Vintage, Phoebe feels the tingle of excitement as customers snap up the fairytale dresses. Her dream has come true, but a secret from her past is casting a shadow over her new venture.

Then one day she meets Therese, an elderly Frenchwoman with a collection to sell, apart from one piece that she won't part with...

As Therese tells the story of the little blue coat, Phoebe becomes aware of a profound connection with her own life, one that will help her heal the pain of her past and allow her to love again."

See you after Easter dear ones!
