About the Book:
An enchanting novel about fate, second chances, and hope, lost and found, by the Amazon Charts bestselling author of The Last of the Moon Girls.
Soline Roussel is well schooled in the business of happy endings. For generations her family has kept an exclusive bridal salon in Paris, where magic is worked with needles and thread. It’s said that the bride who wears a Roussel gown is guaranteed a lifetime of joy. But devastating losses during World War II leave Soline’s world and heart in ruins and her faith in love shaken. She boxes up her memories, stowing them away, along with her broken dreams, determined to forget.
Decades later, while coping with her own tragic loss, aspiring gallery owner Rory Grant leases Soline’s old property and discovers a box containing letters and a vintage wedding dress, never worn. When Rory returns the mementos, an unlikely friendship develops, and eerie parallels in Rory’s and Soline’s lives begin to surface. It’s clear that they were destined to meet—and that Rory may hold the key to righting a forty-year wrong and opening the door to shared healing and, perhaps, a little magic.
Barbara Davis writes lovely and unique stories. A few years ago, while visiting me during the summer, my mom read one of her books. She went on to read all of Barbara Davis’ backlist in a short time. They are that good!
The Keeper of Happy Endings is the story of Soline, the owner of a bridal salon in Paris. The dresses her family has made for generations are supposed to bring a lifetime of joy to those who wear them. Tragedy strikes when World War II happens, and Soline’s life is forever changed.
It’s also the story of Rory, decades later. When she leases the property owned by Soline’s family to open an art gallery, she finds letters and a dress with special meaning. Soline and Rory’s paths cross in an unexpected way.
With a touch of mystery and romance and a sprinkle of magic, The Keeper of Happy Endings is a lovingly told story of second chances.
I received a gifted copy of the book.
