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 sooner or later become the store and each and every others’ lives.
At Hourglass Vintage in Madison, Wisconsin, each and every item in the boutique has a story to tell . . . and so do the women who are drawn there.
Violet Turner has all the time dreamed of owning a shop like Hourglass Vintage. When she is faced with the potential of losing it, she realizes that, as much as she wants to, she can not save it on my own.
Eighteen-year-old April Morgan is nearly five months along in an unplanned pregnancy when her hasty engagement is broken. When she returns the easiest 1950s wedding dress, she discovers unexpected possibilities and friends who won’t let her surrender 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.
