The Last Dress From Paris

book | Fiction | 2021

From the backstreets of Paris to the V&A in London, a sweeping love story, told through eight couture dresses, reunites three generations of women.

Lucille is avoiding life's difficult conversations - with a boyfriend she accidentally acquired; a mother who has forgotten her birthday for the fifth year running and an egotistical boss who wants her gone. Then her beloved grandmother, Sylvie, sends her to Paris to retrieve a dress she wore decades earlier.

Alice is trapped in an unhappy marriage in 1950s Paris. From the outside it's glamorous and privileged. From the inside it's lonely and loveless. A passionate love affair, charted through the exquisite couture dresses she wears, leaves a trail that will expose her.

As two timelines and love stories collide, family secrets are exposed, history is rewritten and Lucille is forced to embrace the woman she really is.
