Customer Reviews

"This quiet, steady gem of a story is sure to warm readers’ hearts."

— Booklist

"An unassuming yet magnetic older woman becomes possessed by the notion of acquiring an Oscar de la Renta dress. [A] fairy tale of a novel by fashion writer Norwich . . . Despite her plain Yankee exterior, [Mrs. Brown] has a dignity and luminosity of spirit that draws people to her . . . Like its main character, appealing, sweet, old-fashioned and, at heart, very sad."
