A small-town girl with a flair for fashion, Violet Turner had always dreamed of owning a shop like Hourglass Vintage. But when faced with the possibility of losing the store to an unscrupulous developer, she realizes that despite her usual self-reliance she cannot save it all by herself.
Eighteen-year-old April Morgan is nearly five months along in an unplanned pregnancy when her hasty engagement is broken. When she returns the perfect vintage wedding dress to Violet’s shop, she forges an unexpected bond with women who won’t let her give up on her dreams.
Betrayed by her husband, Amithi Singh begins selling off her vibrant Indian silk dresses. After decades of housekeeping and parenting a daughter who rejects her traditional ways, she fears her best days are behind her . . . until she discovers an outlet for her creativity with a needle and thread.
Vintage is a charming tale of possibility, of finding renewal, love, and hope when we least expect it.
A sweet story of four women and how their lives interweave. All four women share their stories and find their present circumstances intersecting, forging business and personal relationships. The vintage clothing store snags the readers attention. A certain charm is added with the cog serving as the vintage store and its owner, great descriptions of clothing along with snippets of their past.
A feel good story with little surprises, predictability is very clear. The varying characters and their growing bond makes this a fun and sentimental story. Not heavy on character development, you still become more than familiar with each protagonist. A story of love, second chances making for a entertaining read for the beach or fireplace.
