(135)A Vintage Affair by Isabel Wolfe

I am not really into clothes or fashion like some women (and men) are. I don't care much about designer labels or fashion week or any of that hoopla. Having said that, A Vintage Affair really gave me a different perspective to the stories that clothes can tell.

A Vintage Affair tells the story of Phoebe and her vintage clothing store set in London. Things have been pretty rough for her, emotionally, in the last year or so and she takes solace in her vintage clothes and the stories they tell. She meets Mrs Bell and discovers that they have more in common than just their love of old clothes.

As the story goes on you see Phoebe try to deal with her issues, make her store a success, and juggle a burgeoning dating life. It is easy to understand why Phoebe finds comfort in the vintage clothes that are a huge part of her life.

A Vintage Affair is an enjoyable book to read. I love reading books set in the UK to begin with, but a story like this really takes it a step further. The writing is great, the characters are enchanting, and the story is one you won't forget!


Why I Read...

I remember the carefree summer days when I used to ride my bike to the public library to pick out new books. I would go almost daily to find books to read. I read to learn. I read to explore the world. I read to escape. I read because not reading is not an option.
