OVERVIEW

This is a sweet story, time slip fiction between 1946 up to the current time, set mainly in the beautiful and historic Charleston, SC. Millie is really our main character, a young black woman as the story begins, who for many reasons, passes for white yet keeps this secret from even those she loves most. This decision is reflected in every other main decision she makes in her long life. Millie‚Äôs greatest desire is to own a dress shop, a dream she carries most of her life with a delightful resolution to that dream late in her life. The Christian message is strong, there is some lovely romance, a little mild mystery; something for everyone!
