    Even though this historical fiction book revolves around the making of Queen Elizabeth's wedding gown, there surprisingly is a fair amount of depth to the story. I actually picked this one up because I thought it would be a nice escape from some stressful life events and while it certa...

    I had a chance to read this for a cover quote, and devoured it! My quote: "Jennifer Robson embroiders life, friendship, and hope into the somber gray world of post-war London every bit as skillfully as her seamstress heroines embroider crystal flowers into the folds of a royal wedd...

    I admit that I requested The Gown because I was struck by that stunning cover and the title! I'm admittedly an enormous anglophile and lover of the British monarchy so when I saw the picture of the then Princess Elizabeth in her gorgeous wedding gown, I knew this book would blow me aw...

    Thank you TLC Book Tours for gifting me a copy of The Gown in exchange for an honest review. It is no secret that Historical Fiction is my favorite genre to read and The Royal Family are my favorite people to obsess over. So, of course, I would have to read The Gown, a fictionalized...

    The Gown takes place in two time periods: 1947 in post war London where people are trying to deal with the war?s brutal aftermath and the embroiderers of the Norman Hartnell fashion house, particularly Ann Hughes and Miriam Dassin, are tasked with making the wedding gown for then Pri...

    While The Gown is a heartfelt tale about the creation of Princess Elizabeth?s wedding gown, it is also ultimately the story of three women who strive to find their place in the world and how each deals with love, loss, and family. The book is told in a dual timeline format with Miria...

    A moving story of life after the end of World War II centered on the women behind the scenes of the joyous occasion of Queen Elizabeth's wedding. A celebration of strength, resilience, and friendship, The Gown transports readers as Robson offers a richly detailed and meticulously resea...

    Already heralded by The Washington Post, People, USA Today and numerous others, this is the incredible story of the making of Queen Elizabeth's gown and the remarkable women who made it. And it is out today! ...

    So, what makes a story about a gown so special? In this case, it's the wedding gown that Princess Elizabeth wore at her wedding. Jennifer Robson has woven together a fascinating tale about two women that worked on the gown and a young woman that discovers her grandmother has some skele...

    4.5/5 The Gown by Jennifer Robson tells the stories of three women: Ann and Miriam, who are embroiderers working quietly behind-the-scenes to make a Royal wedding gown in 1947, and a young woman named Heather who is working to piece together her grandmother?s mysterious past in 20...

    Jennifer Robson has written a very touching novel about the women who made the glorious wedding gown that Princess Elizabeth wore when she married in 1947. This historical novel gives us intimate details of not only the gown, but also of what it was like in post-war Europe. What I love...

    Truly a beautiful, moving story of the women that worked on Queen Elizabeth's wedding gown. The story focuses on 3 young women, two in the 40s that are working on the gown, Ann and Miriam and one in present time, Heather who is Ann's granddaughter. I found the book hard to put down a...

    I received an advanced reader copy from the publishing house. All thoughts and opinions are my own. The Gown is going to be one of those buzz books this winter that everyone will be talking about, I guarantee it. Instead of exploring the story of the royal family and all of its...

    I was hesitant to read The Gown. The hullabaloo about Markle and Harry put me off the premise, although their wedding probably helped the author sell some books. However, I enjoyed this story, in no small part because in my younger years, I sewed. Robson nailed the fabric character...

    Thank you to @william morrow books for the free review copy Wow what a beautiful way to tell this story. I was immediately drawn in to the lives of Ann, Miriam, and Heather. The Gown alternates between three perspectives. The first story line is from two perspectives; Ann and Mir...

    I LOVED this book. I couldn?t put it down and read it in one day. I don?t know if it is because I am a big Royal watcher, or because Harry and Meghan?s wedding happened earlier this year, or because I have been lucky enough to hear Jennifer Robson talk about this book twice this ...

    Already heralded by The Washington Post, People, USA Today and numerous others, this is the incredible story of the making of Queen Elizabeth's gown and the remarkable women who made it. And it is out today! ...

    So, what makes a story about a gown so special? In this case, it's the wedding gown that Princess Elizabeth wore at her wedding. Jennifer Robson has woven together a fascinating tale about two women that worked on the gown and a young woman that discovers her grandmother has some skele...

    4.5/5 The Gown by Jennifer Robson tells the stories of three women: Ann and Miriam, who are embroiderers working quietly behind-the-scenes to make a Royal wedding gown in 1947, and a young woman named Heather who is working to piece together her grandmother?s mysterious past in 20...

    Jennifer Robson has written a very touching novel about the women who made the glorious wedding gown that Princess Elizabeth wore when she married in 1947. This historical novel gives us intimate details of not only the gown, but also of what it was like in post-war Europe. What I love...

    Truly a beautiful, moving story of the women that worked on Queen Elizabeth's wedding gown. The story focuses on 3 young women, two in the 40s that are working on the gown, Ann and Miriam and one in present time, Heather who is Ann's granddaughter. I found the book hard to put down a...

    I received an advanced reader copy from the publishing house. All thoughts and opinions are my own. The Gown is going to be one of those buzz books this winter that everyone will be talking about, I guarantee it. Instead of exploring the story of the royal family and all of its...

    I was hesitant to read The Gown. The hullabaloo about Markle and Harry put me off the premise, although their wedding probably helped the author sell some books. However, I enjoyed this story, in no small part because in my younger years, I sewed. Robson nailed the fabric character...

    Thank you to @william morrow books for the free review copy Wow what a beautiful way to tell this story. I was immediately drawn in to the lives of Ann, Miriam, and Heather. The Gown alternates between three perspectives. The first story line is from two perspectives; Ann and Mir...

    I LOVED this book. I couldn?t put it down and read it in one day. I don?t know if it is because I am a big Royal watcher, or because Harry and Meghan?s wedding happened earlier this year, or because I have been lucky enough to hear Jennifer Robson talk about this book twice this ...

    A warmly thoughtful multi-layered historical novel - here's my full review: https://openlettersreview.com/open-le... ...

    I enjoyed this interesting historical about two women tasked with helping to do the complicated embroidery on Princess Elizabeth's wedding gown for her 1947 marriage. The dressmaking details are fascinating, but they don't overwhelm the story, which is really about the friendship betwe...

    To read THE GOWN is to be transported back in time. Robson?s new book is so rich with detail, the 21st century seemed like a distant memory. Jennifer Robson's best book yet, at once utterly transporting and profoundly relatable, THE GOWN tells the story of Ann, Miriam, and Heather, t...

    Originally published at Reading Reality This is not about Elizabeth. Instead, it is a story of friendship, and family. And it is a story about the making of what is now a historical artifact, but was, once upon a time not so very long ago, a dress in which countless young women inve...

    Lindas Book Obsession Reviews ?The Gown? by Jennifer Robson Kudos to Jennifer Robson, Author of ?The Gown? for vividly writing and describing the enchanting, emotional, exciting, heartbreaking, enthralling and intriguing novel about one of the most famous Royal wedding dresses...

    Wow. I am a huge fan of Jennifer Robson's historical fiction and The Gown continues the love affair. I was fortunate enough to be able to attend a high tea with Jennifer Robson and Kate Quinn and receive advance copies of each of their new novels. I read The Gown in about a day and a h...

    No surprise that I loved The Gown so very much. It reminded me a lot of Dear Mrs. Bird, another British historical fiction novel set around war time. The Gown is set in post war England when Princess Elizabeth announces her wedding and chooses Norman Hartwell to design the dress. A...

    Evocative, enchanting, and beautifully written! Absolutely adored it! Full review to follow shortly. Thank you to William Morrow and Goodreads Giveaways for my copy! ...

    This was amazing! It was multi-dimensional, and all of the main characters were super relatable. I learned a lot from reading this, and that?s never a bad thing. ...

    Confession the first: I?m not really that interested in the actual royal family or royal weddings. Like, even when I was younger and would fantasize about randomly meeting Prince Harry and falling in love with him, I really didn?t know anything about them. Confession the second: I ...

    Already heralded by The Washington Post, People, USA Today and numerous others, this is the incredible story of the making of Queen Elizabeth's gown and the remarkable women who made it. And it is out today! ...

    So, what makes a story about a gown so special? In this case, it's the wedding gown that Princess Elizabeth wore at her wedding. Jennifer Robson has woven together a fascinating tale about two women that worked on the gown and a young woman that discovers her grandmother has some skele...

    4.5/5 The Gown by Jennifer Robson tells the stories of three women: Ann and Miriam, who are embroiderers working quietly behind-the-scenes to make a Royal wedding gown in 1947, and a young woman named Heather who is working to piece together her grandmother?s mysterious past in 20...

    Jennifer Robson has written a very touching novel about the women who made the glorious wedding gown that Princess Elizabeth wore when she married in 1947. This historical novel gives us intimate details of not only the gown, but also of what it was like in post-war Europe. What I love...

    Truly a beautiful, moving story of the women that worked on Queen Elizabeth's wedding gown. The story focuses on 3 young women, two in the 40s that are working on the gown, Ann and Miriam and one in present time, Heather who is Ann's granddaughter. I found the book hard to put down a...

    I received an advanced reader copy from the publishing house. All thoughts and opinions are my own. The Gown is going to be one of those buzz books this winter that everyone will be talking about, I guarantee it. Instead of exploring the story of the royal family and all of its...

    I was hesitant to read The Gown. The hullabaloo about Markle and Harry put me off the premise, although their wedding probably helped the author sell some books. However, I enjoyed this story, in no small part because in my younger years, I sewed. Robson nailed the fabric character...

    Thank you to @william morrow books for the free review copy Wow what a beautiful way to tell this story. I was immediately drawn in to the lives of Ann, Miriam, and Heather. The Gown alternates between three perspectives. The first story line is from two perspectives; Ann and Mir...

    I LOVED this book. I couldn?t put it down and read it in one day. I don?t know if it is because I am a big Royal watcher, or because Harry and Meghan?s wedding happened earlier this year, or because I have been lucky enough to hear Jennifer Robson talk about this book twice this ...

    A warmly thoughtful multi-layered historical novel - here's my full review: https://openlettersreview.com/open-le... ...

    I enjoyed this interesting historical about two women tasked with helping to do the complicated embroidery on Princess Elizabeth's wedding gown for her 1947 marriage. The dressmaking details are fascinating, but they don't overwhelm the story, which is really about the friendship betwe...

    To read THE GOWN is to be transported back in time. Robson?s new book is so rich with detail, the 21st century seemed like a distant memory. Jennifer Robson's best book yet, at once utterly transporting and profoundly relatable, THE GOWN tells the story of Ann, Miriam, and Heather, t...

    Originally published at Reading Reality This is not about Elizabeth. Instead, it is a story of friendship, and family. And it is a story about the making of what is now a historical artifact, but was, once upon a time not so very long ago, a dress in which countless young women inve...
