Kate is shocked to discover that her family has been intrusted as the keeper of the actual Cinderella dress from the legends. Keeping a secret in WWII is tough, especially when your mom has to work, and your brother enlists. People are looking for the dress and Kate has trouble balancing survival in keeping the dress a secret.
I really liked this book. It had a nice blend of historical facts and engaging characters. I found it choppy at parts as it jumped ahead in the progression of the war, but I’m reviewing an ARC not a final version, so it is possible those transitions will be fixed. I loved the letters from the war front.
Quote from Kate’s brother in the war.
“Tell mom I’d rather have a few crisp dollar bills than toothpaste.”
