The Wedding Dress Sewing Circle is a Warm Historical Romance

The Wedding Dress Sewing Circle

By: Jennifer Ryan

This was the second book that I have read by Jennifer Ryan. She also wrote the Chillbury Ladies' Choir and The Kitchen Front, which is out right now and having good reviews. I will possibly have to pick that book up and read it too!

As is her formula, Jennifer Ryan follows the lives of three women during WW II. Cressida is a prominent London designer whose home and studio are bombed. She returns to her family's estate to find her brother dead, and her niece and nephew are now running the manor. Her niece, Violet, is a pampered princess who receives her conscription papers and is sent to work for the war effort. Her nephew, Hugh, seems to be doing his duty and following his father's wishes in love and business. But he does not seem happy about any of it.

Grace is a local girl who is the daughter of the vicar. She is promised to a young man and is looking to fix up her mother's wedding dress for the wedding. In steps Cressida to help her restore the gown with the assistance of their local community sewing circle.

Through the stories of Cressida, Violet and Grace, we see these three women struggle to discover their strengths and their dreams and find love along the way.

This book was a very warm and entertaining read. I loved how the author developed her characters throughout the book, which were all centred around the sewing circle.

Thanks to Netgalley and Random House Publishing-Ballantine for this ARC in exchange for my honest opinion. A great read!
