Sylvie always sighed over love stories that seemed to fall into place with such ease. Especially since she had a habit of falling for Mr. Wrong.- Roz Denny Fox from The Hope Dress
Loved this story! As most of you already know, I just returned from a family vacation to Disneyland, where we celebrated my son's 3rd birthday. In a nutshell, the trip was fantastic-the lines were surprisingly shorter than expected, my son was the best behaved child I've ever seen, I got to enjoy my first experience of Disney with both my own child AND my parents (how cool is that?) and lastly, the six hour plane rides to and fro allowed me the uninterupted peace to read Roz Denny Fox's The Hope Dress.
This beautiful lovestory about Sylvie Shea, a wedding dress designer with a broken heart and Joel Mercer, a single dad, comic strip creator was so wonderfully crafted, I truly felt like I knew these people at the end of the story. The secondary characters were fun and unique-from Joel's sweet, adorable daughter, Rianne to Sylvie's meddling mother and younger sisters. I love Sylvie's resistance to being set up, yet the underlying everlasting tinge of hope that she may someday wear a wedding dress of her own. And Joel's support and encouragement to her is definitely fall-in-love worthy:)
And the ending-perfect is the only word to describe it...and I won't spoil it for those of you who have yet to read it, but Roz-amazing ending:)
So far, I am loving this line! Thanks Roz for making those six hours on a plane just soar on by with your beautifully crafted story!
