The Dress Shop of Dreams by Meena Van Praag December 30th

I loved this book it mixes in just the right touch of magic to give it just a hint of a fairy tale. Etta has spent her life raising her grand daughter Cora after her parents tragic death and working in her dress shop where the gowns choose the person that will wear them. Cora has grown up to be a scientist and has chosen to carry on the work her parents didn’t have a chance to finish and while her work is rewarding it is her life and despite her grandmothers urging she has no desire to change it her life is routine and she has no desire for the magic and excitement her grandmother has always tried to share with her, but then sends Cora a cure ball and she begins to make peace with her past and decide on the future she wants.
