Cinderella's Dress

I loved the contrast of WWII history with the fairytale of Cinderella in Cinderella's Dress. I imagined the relics in my mind, picturing the amber necklace and the beautiful dress as they might look on a regal princess. The author did a good job of showing how the women in Kate's life shaped her personality and values.

This is a 4 star read, I liked it!
