Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Gretchen Brink leads a quiet life on the family farm, caring for her blind twin sisters. When the farm is damaged by a tornado, the women discover a man lying in their field, struck by lightning and suffering from amnesia. The storm’s aftermath also brings an unexpected visit from Gretchen’s daughter, Abby. As the cleanup begins, the Brink women have much to sort through, including determining the identity of the mysterious stranger. Abby is convinced he is her long-lost father, Sam. Gretchen harbors the same suspicion, although she knows Sam is not really Abby’s father, despite telling everyone he was when she became pregnant 40 years ago. As the mystery man’s identity is slowly revealed, Gretchen contemplates the eventual discovery of her decades-old lie and its impact on her fragile daughter. Despite a plot that is a bit too neatly tied up, this novel offers an interesting cast of characters, particularly the twins, whose lack of sight gives them insight into everyone and everything. McBride’s novel is a gentle reminder of the unexpected and inevitable nature of change. --Carol Gladstein

Review

“Seamlessly toggling between decades, McBride delivers a poignant page-turner with flawed but lovable characters.” (Publishers Weekly)

“Written with touching insight into family relationships and what we call home, The Little Black Dress is a lovely and entertaining journey into the magical side of things. I bet you’ll never look at your closet the same way again.” (Sarah Addison Allen)

“I’m madly in love with this full-of-surprises story about secrets, family ties--and one magical little black dress. One of my favorite novels of the year.” (Melissa Senate, author of The Secret of Joy and The Love Goddess' Cooking School)

“I’ll read anything by Susan McBride.” (Charlaine Harris)
