My Mrs. Brown: A Novel
If you want to feel good about the world and people in it, please immediately read this wonderful book. Like The #1 Lady Detective Agency it is so sweet without every approaching cloying. Mrs. Brown is making ends meet by working a variety of odd jobs since her husband died of a heart attack. She is frugal and very modest in her desires. She is also quite genteel. She sweeps up in a beauty shop and helps take inventory at the estate of a rich woman. It is at that estate that Mrs. Brown sees a dress which captivates her. It is an Oscar de la Renta design and it displays fine craftsmanship along with a very high price tag. Mrs. Brown makes up her mind to have the dress. The reader does not know why Mrs. Brown is so determined, let alone where she will ever wear such a fine dress. That mystery is at the heart of this beautiful novel. Along the way, Mrs. Brown receives unexpected good luck along with heartbreaking losses. When you finish this book — or even before — Mrs. Brown will live for you and you will find yourself loving her as much as I do.
