One dress. Three generations of women. A lifetime of love.In Paris, 1958, Grace Kelly's royal wedding dress is still all the rage in fashion circles. Rose, a seamstress at a famous atelier, has just been entrusted with sewing another gown in its image. An orphan, she needs her job to survive. But when Rose finds herself in love with the bride's handsome brother, she must decide what matters most: love or security.Sixty years later, Rocky is thrilled to be marrying the love of her life. He truly is her perfect fit. But there's just one problem: her family's heirloom wedding dress isn't. Rocky knows this admission will break her mother's heart. What she doesn't know is why her mother is so set on the dress--or about the shocking secret that changed her mother's life decades before, as she prepared to wear the dress herself. As the wedding day approaches, the mother-daughter pair will finally confront long-buried heartaches, and it might just be the dress that brings them closer than ever.Life-affirming, heartwarming and timeless, Brenda Janowitz's The Grace Kelly dress is about the importance of tradition, new and old, and the power of a dress to fulfill even the most impossible of dreams.
