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.
Praise for Vintage:
“…This novel is sure to please fans of women’s fiction who enjoy an engaging story filled with plucky characters and second acts.” —Library Journal
“…Gloss should have a built-in fan base for this book-club-worthy story of redemption, healing, and love.” —Booklist
