Summary
Therese Bell, an elderly Frenchwoman, has an impressive clothing collection. But among the array of smart suits and couture gowns, London dressmaker Phoebe finds a child's sky-blue coat--an item with which Bell is stubbornly reluctant to part. As the two women become friends, Phoebe will learn the tale of that little blue coat. And she will discover an astonishing connection between herself and Therese Bell--one that will help her heal the pain of her own past and allow her to love again
Summary
Opening a vintage clothing shop in London where she restores classic gowns, Phoebe Swift works to keep up with her unexpected immediate success while struggling with her best friend's death, a rivalry between two suitors and her mother's cosmetic surgery fixation
