A Vintage Affair is the story of Phoebe, who has recently broken off her engagement (there's a big secret involved) and embarked on her dream career, as owner of a vintage clothing shop. It is such a fun book...well, as fun as a book with a Holocaust sub-theme can be. It's smartly written, with many characters, but they're well-developed enough to not clutter up the story. There's romance, there's friendship, and for those of you who like to cry, there are certainly those moments, too. It was one of those books where you just want to flip ahead to find out what happens, because sometimes the tension is too much to bear!
Now that I've done this review, my next task is to decide which friend of mine will be lucky enough to get the book next. I have fashionista friends who aren't avid readers, and vice versa...but this title might be enough to encourage both passions!
You can visit the author's website, http://www.isabelwolff.com/. I'll certainly be seeking out some more of her books, after being so impressed with this one.
