My Dear Miss Dupre | Review

The Dress Shop On King Street

 The Dress Shop On King Street is such an amazing novel. Penned by Ashley Clark this one one of my new favorites. Fill with witty, heartfelt dialogue and inspiration characters this is sure to be a favorite on your shelve as well. 

 Harper Dupree has pinned all her hopes on a future in fashion design. But when it comes crashing down around her, she returns home to Fairhope, Alabama, and to Millie, the woman who first taught her how to sew. As Harper rethinks her own future, long-hidden secrets about Millie's past are brought to light.

In 1946, Millie Middleton--the daughter of an Italian man and a Black woman--boarded a train and left Charleston to keep half of her heritage hidden. She carried with her two heirloom buttons and the dream of owning a dress store. She never expected to meet a charming train jumper who changed her life forever . . . and led her yet again to a heartbreaking choice about which heritage would define her future.

Now, together, Harper and Millie return to Charleston to find the man who may hold the answers they seek . . . and a chance at the dress shop they've both dreamed of. But it's not until all appears lost that they see the unexpected ways to mend what frayed between the seams.”

Historical fiction is one of my absolute favorite genres, especially based around the 1940s to 1960s. There have only been a few authors to write about things surrounding these eras and I can now add Ashley Clark to that list.  I sincerely hope to read more of her books in the future. If you enjoy Christian based historical fiction then be sure to check this book out!
