I thought this was a very interesting story about three young Italian immigrants living in Boston. Julietta is a headstrong, rule-breaker who has plans to do as she pleases, and love who she pleases. Annamaria is the ultimate "good girl" who always does as she is told, and knows her place in her family. Luciana is struggling with her fall from fortune, and trying to survive the assassin who killed her father. All three young ladies come together at Madame Fortier's dress shop, where they work on the third floor using their talents to create gowns for the wealthy. Julietta, Annamaria, and Luciana overcome their fears, turn to God, and realize the plans He has for their lives in very different ways. There is a history lesson to be learned from this story on how Italian immigrants were viewed in the early 1900's, along with a fantastic tale of romance, danger, faith, and family all rolled into one. I thoroughly enjoyed the author's writing style and storytelling, and would recommend this book to my friends!
Bethany House Publishers sent me this book for free so that I could write a non-biased review.
