Staff Review: "The Dress Shop of Dreams" by Menna van Praag


What a beautiful, enchanting read! This is a book you will fall in love with, and characters that you feel as if you know from the very beginning. Studious and unfeeling Cora, after the death of her parents, splits her life between trying to continue her parents' scientific work and keeping her grandmother company in the beautiful dress shop she owns in Cambridge. When Cora discovers her parents' death may not have been an accident, she vows to find out what happened. Meanwhile, her grandmother is desperately trying to get Cora to feel anything, before she loses out on the love of her life. Full of life-changing secrets and lovable characters, this was a heartwarming and wonderful read.
