sorry found it depressing!!!!!!!
on 12 February 2011
Despite the other reviews for this book I found a book where the predominant content is strokes,hospitals,death,funerals and arguements over estates left totally spoilt what I thought would be a nice read. I was hoping for more focus to be on the dress stories and the charm of the vintage shop and its contents.Starting a book with the main female lead stopping off at her Grandmother's house and spending time trying to decide what vintage dress,shoes,accessories etc she could wear to the hospital when she has only just found out about her grandmothers stroke in extremely poor taste-so what that you are wearing an old t shirt and chinos because youve driven straight there from your coffee shop job- just get to the hospital for goodness sake your grandmother is gravely ill!!!!!So please take all this into account as it spoils what could have been a lovely story!
