Do fairytale dresses bring fairytale endings?

Every dress has a history, so does Phoebe…

Phoebe always dreamt of opening her own vintage dress shop. She imagined every detail, from the Vivienne Westwood bustiers hanging next to satin gowns, to sequinned cupcake 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 feels a profound connection with her own life, one that will help her heal the pain of her past and allow her to love again.

Review:

'What a lovely book! Protagonist and narrator Phoebe gives a passionate insight into the world of vintage clothing (nope, I had no idea it was this big either) where she works, and the world of emotional pain where she lives, having suffered a chain of tragic and unlucky events. I don't want to give too much away, but a rather bittersweet love story is described in wonderful, vivid detail; brilliantly well-drawn characters abound and the vintage bits very well researched. It really is full of quite fascinating stuff. I hate to admit it, but I had a few tears in my eyes at the end. Read this if you're in need of a serious feelgood factor.' Sara Lawrence, Daily Mail.
