Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Violet Turner, owner of Hourglass Vintage, a store in Madison, Wisconsin, anchors this debut about the transformative power of female friendship. Each item of clothing in the shop has a rich history, which is why Violet loves vintage clothing so much; her own past, however, with a failed marriage to an alcoholic man, she’s happy to forget. Two other women rotate around Violet and Hourglass Vintage: Amithi, from India, who has just learned of her husband’s affair, and April, a pregnant 18-year-old, mourning the loss of her mother. Both assist Violet as she attempts to raise enough money to buy the shop and prevent developers from converting the building into condos. At the start of each chapter, a vintage item is described—for instance, “White nightgown with the tags still on it. Flutter sleeves. Rosebud embroidery along the square neckline”—which is then woven into the upcoming narrative. Swap the vintage-clothing device for knitting, and you have Kate Jacobs’ The Friday Night Knitting Club (2007), which means Gloss should have a built-in fan base for this book-club-worthy story of redemption, healing, and love. --Ann Kelley
