About the book:
Harper Albright has pinned all her hopes on a future in fashion design. But when it comes crashing down around her, she returns home to Fairhope, Alabama, and to Millie, the woman who first taught her to sew. As she rethinks her own future, secrets long hidden about Millie’s past are brought to light.
In 1946, Millie Middleton boarded a train and left Charleston to keep half of her heritage hidden. She carried with her two heirloom buttons and the dream of owning a dress store. She never expected to meet a charming train jumper who changed her life forever . . . and led her yet again to a heartbreaking choice about which heritage would define her future.
Now, together, Harper and Millie return to Charleston and the man who may hold the answers they seek . . . and a chance at the dress shop they’ve both dreamed of. But it’s not until all appears lost that they see the unexpected ways to mend what frayed between the seams.
What a stunning debut novel! Ashley Clark is a very welcome fresh addition to the Christian Fiction community! I absolutely loved this split time novel! Each part complimented each other perfectly. I loved Millie, Harper, and Peter! I loved the message in this story as well. I can’t wait to see what comes next for Ashley Clark! She may very well become a must read author for me!
