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?
I enjoyed this book, as the storyline of five brides sharing one wedding gown is intriguing. Although there were parts I didn't like, or thought that it dragged the story out. The main thing that caught my attention on this book is that it is based on a true story, and the author interviewed one of the five brides. The other four girls stories were mainly fictional, though based on a few facts.
As each girl goes on her journey in life, the pros and cons, they all help each other through the trials.
I would rate this book 3.5 out of 5 stars
I received this book free from Tyndale Blog Network for an honest review.
