Enjoyed the book. Worth the time it took to read it.

A wonderful, sweet, uplifting story of a good and simple woman’s quest to buy a specific designer dress. She makes her first trip to New York where she has a magical two days, all because of her simple goodness. This book is a good reminder not to gossip, to believe the best, to follow your dreams, and to trust God. I’d love to see this one become a movie.

I agree...a lovely, satisfying novel.

A quiet, lovely book about a woman in search of a dress.

This book is perfect. It filled a need in my heart that I didn't know I was missing. Delightful!

I picked up this book on a lark, thinking it would be a nice cheetos-for-the-brain-type book, which it kind of was, but I thoroughly enjoyed it. A bit unbelievable in parts but I did especially enjoy the bus tour to New York City. Mrs. Brown is a lovable, simple, unassuming character with a consuming obsession. There are some lovely truisms scattered throughout the book. My only criticism of the book is that at times it was a bit over the top for my taste. Spoiler alert: Be prepared to shed a tear or two at the end.

What an amazing difference one woman can make in many different lives. Mrs. Brown is that woman. A wonderful story about being kind, helping others and deciding to do that one thing for yourself that makes you happy.
