The Gown

Free read The Gown Free download Á The Gown Î PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free “Millions will welcome this joyous event as a flash of color on the long road we have to travel” Sir Winston Churchill on the news of Princess Elizabeth’s forthcoming weddingLondon 1947 Besieged by the harshest winter in living memory burdened by onerous shortages and rationing the people of postwar Britain are enduring lives of uiet desperation despite their nation’s recent victory Among them are Ann Hughes and Miriam Dassin embroiderers at the famed Mayfair fashion house of Norman Hartnell Together they forge an unlikely friendship but their nascent hopes. Even though this historical fiction book revolves around the making of ueen Elizabeth s wedding gown there surprisingly is a fair amount of depth to the story I actually picked this one up because I thought it would be a nice escape from some stressful life events and while it certainly provided a welcome distraction I did find myself feeling emotionally invested in some of the characters than I initially had predicted Sometimes a book finds a way into your hands at the perfect time and that certainly was the case hereWhile World War 2 was over life in London in 1947 was pretty bleak but the country did have the upcoming wedding of Princess Elizabeth to look forward to Ann Hughes and Miriam Dassin are part of a team of embroiderers and seamstresses that have been tasked with the making of the wedding gown Fast forward to 2016 where Heather has found a set of embroidered flowers in her late grandmother s possessions Not knowing why her grandmother Nan had them to begin with Heather embarks on a uest to find out about Nan s mysterious life when she lived in London decades ago as it was a topic that always seemed to be off limits in the family In regards to the historical accuracy of the book this is a case of the author taking some known facts about the making of the wedding gown but also largely using her imagination in regards to the story The main characters in the book do not exist in real life which might disappoint some historical fiction fans but I thought what the author came up with in terms of a story still makes for a compelling read I highly recommend reading the author s note at the end as it provides a good context into her writing processI like how the novel touched on what life was like in London a few years after the war as it s not a topic explored nearly as much as it could be in books Miriam s backstory brought a lot of depth to her character But for me the most meaningful part of the story was the special relationship between Heather and her grandmother and how fortunate I was to have that same connection with my grandmother I don t think you necessarily have to be a fan of fashion or the royals to enjoy this book It s just a good solid read with strong female characters and I don t hesitate to recommend giving it a chance

Jennifer Robson appeals to those who love all things British Royals as well as fans of historical fiction with her latest piece How something like the wedding gown worn by Princess Elizabeth could garner so much attention may confound some but it all becomes clear by the end of this novel Ann Hughes is employed by Norman Hartnell a high end couturier that has recently been asked to make some dresses for the Royal Family So busy is the shop that when Miriam Dassin arrives from France her skills make her a wonderful addition to the group of embroiderers While the group gets to know a little about Miriam they learn that she is uite tight lipped about her life before coming to England as though it is all a major secret Soon thereafter Hartnell is told that his shop will be making Princess Elizabeth s wedding gown creating a buzz amongst the embroiderers As Ann and Miriam work they grow closer to one another slowly divulging secrets about their respective pasts When not working on the gown a top secret project they find themselves discovering the allure of the opposite sex As both Miriam and Ann are young and unmarried it only makes sense that they turn a few heads The story tells how both women discover love amidst the backdrop of the most sought after social event of 1947 Speed ahead to Toronto in 2016 Ann s granddaughter Heather makes a discover she will not soon forget Learning that her grandmother worked on the current ueen s wedding gown Heather rushes to England to discover a little knowing little about her grandmother s past before arriving in Canada It is there that she learns that the famous designer Miriam Dassin not only knew her grandmother but worked alongside her As Heather makes meaningful connections in England to better understand the life her grandmother left behind she is touched beyond belief to better understand the life Miriam lived before making it to England to work on the project of a lifetime Uplifting and heartwarming as well as full of historical anecdotes Robson dazzles readers with this piece that is sure to create uite the fanfare Recommended for those who enjoy historical fiction as well as the reader whose interest is piued by talk of royal eventsWhile I tend not to read stories with strong romantic undertones I could not help but want to read this piece I noticed its premise the wedding gown to the current ueen of Canada and could not help but wonder if the threads of historical fiction would counterbalance the amorous themes Robson not only details the characters but creates a persona of the gown as it is being created Ann Hughes is a young woman whose life has centred around her sketches and ability to embroider Given this chance to work on the gown she puts her all into it perhaps blinded by the world around her and those seeking an early peek at this most talked about piece of fabric Miriam Dassin has been through so much even before she graces the pages of this book showing how her backstory helps push her into a world of excitement and secrets all of which are slowly revealed Heather s revelations about her grandmother exemplify for the reader just how little was know about Ann before she arrived in Canada leaving her family in the dark As these three women grow in their respective storylines the one thing tying them all together is the wedding gown whose importance pales in comparison to the life lessons discovered but seems to be something about which all three women can use to grow in their own way The story proves strong and lasts keeping the reader hooked through the various shifts in time While there is a regal theme throughout this does not drown out some of the other narratives that blossom as the story gets intense Robson has a way of keeping the narrative flowing without the need to spin the reader in circles While this is the first piece of Jennifer Robson s that I have read I hope it will not be the last Kudos Madam Robson for a piece that entertained me throughout while keeping me wondering what awaited around the next corner You deserve all the praise you receive and I am eager to explore what else you ve written in your careerLovehate the review An ever growing collection of others appears at Book for All Seasons a different sort of Book Challenge
