Description

Vintage is Susan Gloss’s sparkling debut novel in the Vein of The Friday Night Knitting Club, centered around a Midwestern vintage clothing shop and a group of women who eventually transform the store and each others’ lives.

At Hourglass Vintage in Madison, Wisconsin, every item in the boutique has a story to tell . . . and so do the women who are drawn there.

Violet Turner has always dreamed of owning a shop like Hourglass Vintage. When she is faced with the possibility of losing it, she realizes that, as much as she wants to, she cannot save it alone.

Eighteen-year-old April Morgan is nearly five months along in an unplanned pregnancy when her hasty engagement is broken. When she returns the perfect 1950s wedding dress, she discovers unexpected possibilities and friends who won’t let her give up on her dreams.

Betrayed by her husband, Amithi Singh begins selling off her old clothes, remnants of her past life. After decades of housekeeping and parenting a daughter who rejects her traditional ways, she fears she has nothing more ahead for her.

An engaging story that beautifully captures the essence of women’s friendship and love, Vintage is a charming tale of possibility, of finding renewal and hope when we least expect it.

    I throughly enjoyed the book. I only gave it it four stars, because it did have some swear words in it. Sorry, but that's just how it is. Good reading, good story..

    I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book. I fell in love with all the characters, so fierce and strong and determined. I also liked the little paragraphs dispersed throughout the story giving a description and the backstory of the different vintage items up for sale.
  • Great summer read

    It was a great read, not too "heavy" but enjoyable. A great beach read and one of believing in your value and your desires and acknowledging that it can be done at any age.

    This is such a beautifully told story of characters who I wish were real because I would so enjoy knowing them even better. Once I started I literally could not put it down because as each chapter ended, I couldn't stand not knowing what happened next.
