The Dress Shop on King Street  -     By: Ashley Clark
Harper Albright 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 to sew. As she rethinks her own future, secrets long hidden about Millie's past are brought to light.

In 1946, Millie Middleton 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 and 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.

My Thoughts:
First, let's just talk about this beautiful cover! It is absolutely stunning. I loved looking at it every single time I opened this book. The storyline is a dual timeline. Ashely Clark has written a beautiful novel that flows seamlessly as the reader gets swept into the both time periods. Love, lost, secrets, dreams and hopes are restored, challenged and changed. I had a difficult time putting this book down, but with the holidays, it required me to set it down. This is an author to keep your eye as she captures the readers heart through Harper and Millie. Grab a copy today, this book is heartwarming and a complete treasure. I highly enjoyed reading it.
