Ada Harris spends her days dusting, darning, polishing and scrubbing. But her first glimpse
of a ravishing Christian Dior dress sets her off on a journey that will change her life forever…
From the cobbled streets of post-war London to the shimmering avenues of Paris, Ada
transforms the lives of everyone she meets along the way; but can she let go of the past and
finally allow her own life to blossom?
