The owner of a small high-end dress shop on Manhattan’s Upper East Side, Loviah “Lovie” French is the one to whom certain women turn when they want to dish in the dressing room—including Lovie’s two best friends since boarding school, Dinah Wainwright and Avis Metcalf.

Outspoken Dinah made a name for herself as a columnist covering New York’s most fabulous; shy, proper Avis rose to prominence in the art world with her quiet manners and hard work. Despite their deep affection for Lovie, they have been allergic to each other for decades, uneasy acquaintances who are unwillingly bound to each other when Dinah’s favorite son and Avis’s only daughter fall in love. At the center of their orbit is Lovie, who knows everyone’s secrets and manages them as wisely as she can. Which is not wisely enough, as things turn out—a fact that will have a shattering effect on all their lives.
