LITTLE BLACK DRESS
Genre: Mainstream, General Mainstream Fiction
The parallels between mother and daughter will resonate with all female readers and hopefully will inspire them to research their family trees. Parts of the book move a little too slowly, but the story is still strong and full of hope.
Event planner Antonia Ashton learns that her mother has had a stroke and is in a coma. She returns to her childhood home and begins unraveling secrets held in her family for generations. Her findings lead her to a little black dress connecting her to her mother Evie and an aunt named Annabelle whom she has never met. (MORROW, Sep., 320 pp., $14.99)
