Publisher's Summary

An enchanting novel about fate, second chances, and hope, lost and found, by the Amazon Charts bestselling author of The Last of the Moon Girls.

Soline Roussel is well schooled in the business of happy endings. For generations her family has kept an exclusive bridal salon in Paris, where magic is worked with needle and thread. It’s said that the bride who wears a Roussel gown is guaranteed a lifetime of joy. But devastating losses during World War II leave Soline’s world and heart in ruins and her faith in love shaken. She boxes up her memories, stowing them away, along with her broken dreams, determined to forget.

Decades later, while coping with her own tragic loss, aspiring gallery owner Rory Grant leases Soline’s old property and discovers a box containing letters and a vintage wedding dress, never worn. When Rory returns the mementos, an unlikely friendship develops, and eerie parallels in Rory’s and Soline’s lives begin to surface. It’s clear that they were destined to meet - and that Rory may hold the key to righting a forty-year wrong and opening the door to shared healing and, perhaps, a little magic.

Heartbreaking story; excellent narration!

Thoroughly enjoyable audiobook; I had to sit and listen to the final two hours as I couldn’t wait to listen in the car. An interesting convention using two narrators and I particularly appreciated the authentic French accent performed by Siegerman, who voiced Soline’s chapters. Very clever storyline. Highly recommended!

Narrator's voice was awful, very grating on your nerves! I'm going to read the book instead!

Such a great book!

At first I couldn’t understand Solene’s voice, but then I got used to it, and absolutely loved this book! The narrator changed back and forth voices toward the end that distracted from the flow of the beautiful storyline. I’m not sure why the author chose to do that, or if the narrator just wasn’t consistent with her voice changes. Other than that I really liked the book and was happy with the choice to listen in.

A Happy Read

This book manages to keep it all in one place — love found and lost, war, heartbreak, mothers, daughters, separation, reunions, and happy endings. The best book I’ve read all year by an author writers interested in true craft should read.

Sad and happy

Are there spells or is there a thread binding love of a manándote a women and their progeny. Fromthe horrors of war to the joyous reunion of those thought to be lost. A mystical story of a Jewish Frenchwoman and an American hero working with the resistance. And a modern day story of the granddaughter of Soline and her beloved kidnapped in the Sudan. It is all sewn together to have a heart wrenching happy ending.

Predictable til the end

This story was wrapped up in a neat little bow with a predictable storyline and horrible accents. I can’t recommend.

Beautiful story

I really loved the story and the characters but the narrative of the French woman was a bit too much for me. It was hard to understand, as well.
There was a couple times where I could tell someone completely we Lu different was narrating for Rory which almost lost my interest in the character because they were not very good.
While I appreciated the different voice narratives I don’t think it was necessary.
All and all I the story itself was very good.

Artrocious performances

I have a great tolerance for accents; most of us Europeans do :) And with 700+ books in my Audible library, I don’t think I have ever complained about a performance.
But this was just ear-gratingly awful. That tortured French accent; why? So overdone that it was embarrassing.
And then the continuous vocal fry and waving on the edge of tears vibrato in Rory. Just awful. I nearly didn’t finish the book, that’s how bad the reading is.
Nice story, there’s that.
