it was amazing

This is such a wonderful little book. I purposely read it slowly so it wouldn't end. It is the story of a London cleaning woman who falls crazy in love with Christian Dior gowns and decides she absolutely must have one. Never mind that she would never have anywhere to wear one, or that it will end up taking her over two years to save for it, she simply must have one of her own.

She ends up taking a lovely trip to Paris to buy the dress at the Dior showroom and along the way she has some charming adventures and meets some people who become dear friends.

The ending was unexpected, but I have to say that the book as a whole made me feel the way I do when I watch my favorite movies starring my idol Audrey Hepburn. It's an enchanting little story, and I am convinced that sometimes life can really be just like this.
