The Gown (Robson) - Book Reviews

Book Reviews
(Starred Review) [A] satisfying multigenerational epic…. Robson’s meticulous attention to historical details—notably the intricacies of the embroidery work—is a wonderful complement to the memorable stories of Ann and Milly… a winning, heartwarming tale.
Publishers Weekly

Alternating time lines between 1947 Britain and 2016 Canada, Robson vividly brings to life… three women's struggles. Historical details about fabric, embroidery, and the royal family… with light romance round out this charming work. —Lynnanne Pearson, Skokie P.L., IL
Library Journal

(Starred Review) Robson deftly weaves issues of class, trauma, romance, and female friendship with satisfying details of Ann and Miriam’s craft. This unique take on the royal wedding will be an easy sell to fans of Netflix’s The Crown.

[Robson] shifts deftly between Heather's world… in 2016, and Nan's world, giving meticulous attention to the historical detail of post-World War II London.… A fascinating glimpse into the world of design, the healing power of art, and the importance of women's friendships.
