But what was the famous dress which she once commissioned? What happened to it - and why did Joy suddenly disappear from New York high society?

A beautifully written story... capturing the past and the future.... different generations.... and then the finale that answers all the questions....

I must have read a little about the book before choosing it and I'm pleased I did as I enjoy a double story - one in the present and one alongside in the fifties. It was sad in parts but delightful in others. Not a deep story but very enjoyable to listen to whilst preparing meals!
I'll probably choose more by the same author in the future.

Very Enjoyable

Enjoyed the story and narration. Loved the merging of the two stories and how they come together. Well worth a listen.

I adored the story, couldn’t stop listening, laughed & cried with the characters, but the book unfortunately was ruined for me by the narrators dreadful Oirish accent!!! ..Just stop...... Either get a native Irish narrator or stick to your own accent please!!
