"Written with touching insight into family relationships and what we call home, Little Black Dress is a lovely and entertaining journey into the magical side of things.  I bet you'll never look at your closet the same way again."
Sarah Addison Allen, New York Times bestselling author of The Peach Keeper
"With sparkle and wit, Susan McBride crafts both a family saga of painful secrets and a modern story of a woman who thinks she's got it all under control—until everything she thought she knew blows apart. Little Black Dress is a beguiling story of fate, love, and magic."
—Kristina Riggle, author of Things We Didn't Say
