Review: Vintage By: Susan Gloss

VintageVintage by Susan Gloss
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

***** This is A First Reads, Thank You Goodreads ****

The story of women come alive through the vintage items at Hourglass Vintage. Violet Turner, the owner, who lovingly cares for each item, learns the history, and passes the story to the new buyer, has a story of her her own that is unfolding. April Morgan, the teenager, who tried to return the vintage wedding gown and became an intern working for Violet, as her pregnancy progressed so did her fears. Amithi Singh, whose life of being a good mother and wife was never treated with respect, a daughter now married with non traditional views and a husband who admits to betraying her for most of their marriage, finds herself and her talent for sewing useful at the Hourglass Vintage shop.
Although these three women are highlighted, there are more that are used as secondary characters that almost stand out even more brilliantly - especially, Betsy Barrett. (Now on a personal note, Betsy reminds me of my grandmother and her character is endearing in that way to me as the reader) I found the book to be something nice to dip your feet into when you want to find Spring after the harsh Winter and light chick lit.
