This book offers a story to immerse one’s self in and it is also a novel to make one think. What does it mean to deny a part of one’s heritage? How does a person carry their life forward with that knowledge?
This story takes place both in the 1940s and today with some time also spent in the slave owning south. Heritage and history matter as this story makes clear. It also shows a deep and caring relationship between protagonists Harper and Millie. Both seamstresses, will they achieve their dreams?
Read this novel of loss, pain, hope and two antique buttons. It will move you.
Many thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for this title. All opinions are my own.
