I'm a big fan of women learning more about themselves, or even better, a group of women learning more about themselves together. Bring on The Help, The Friday Night Knitting Club, Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood and Angry Housewives Eating Bon Bons.
I'm throwing a little vintage love into my summer reading mix and trying to decide between A Vintage Affair by Isabel Wolff and The Secret Lives of Dresses by Erin McKean. Both books use vintage clothing as a vehicle to help the main character learn more about herself. I'm sure learning about the clothing will be equally as fun as learning about the characters. Has anyone read either of these and did you enjoy them?
