Description

The characters, for me, were so completely likable. And there is a lot of dialogue which makes reading the book go faster for me. When you are ready to dive in, here is a list of questions to discuss with your reading group to get you started! The Keeper of Happy Endings Book Club Questions Soline: “We were the Roussels, a family of dressmakers—bridal designers to be precise—but with a particular specialty. The bride who wears a Roussel gown on her wedding day is guaranteed a happy ending.” Just the kind of book I always hope for. Two women, Soline and Rory, from different eras and with different pasts come together in a twist of fate that leads them to a stunning and unexpected discovery that changes everything.

The Keeper of Happy Endings - SuperSummary

However, war torn Europe left Soline with a heart ache. Soline was planning to marry the handsome Anson William Purcell when he was killed in the war. Hmmm it appears that her own wedding dress was not made with the magic of “happily ever after stitches” or was it? In March of 1943, Soline volunteered at a hospital in Paris, France, where she met and fell in love with Anson, an American Field Service ambulance driver. Both Anson and Soline were part of an escape network. When it became too dangerous for Soline, Anson arranged for her escape to his family’s residence in Newport, Massachusetts. Upon notification that Anson was most likely dead, Anson’s father cut off all ties with Soline, even though she was pregnant with Anson’s baby. After the trauma of losing her baby shortly after birth, destitute Soline found a job as a dressmaker in the city of Boston. She was highly successful until a catastrophic fire at the shop in the early '80s upended her life.Rory, an art gallery owner wannabe, stumbles upon Soline's old shop and wants to open her gallery in the perfect location.

The Keeper of Happy Endings) Barbara Davis Quotes (Author of The Keeper of Happy Endings)

Although I’ve read a lot of books about that period in history, I always feel I learn something new about the events that happened at that time. It involves interviewing brides to see if they are a good fit with their finances, as well as spell weaving and sewing a charm into the bodice of the gown itself. The magic is not supposed to be used for selfish ends, but when used for a bride it is supposed to promise them a happy life. Source: Unsplash There is so much to discuss in this book. From the multiple timelines, to the historic events, to the magic of a Roussel gown… Two women - Soline and Rory - one that owned a bridal salon who made magical wedding gowns that guaranteed happy endings and one who was starting an art gallery. Of course, I can’t tell you, because if I do, I would be giving away the plot, and that is not what I do.

While I am not a "clothes person", I enjoyed the descriptions of the beautiful embroidery and other handiwork that went into the Roussel wedding gowns. The element of magic added even more spice to the story. How I wish there were more of the magical bits!
