On November 22, 1963, the First Lady accompanied her husband to Dallas, Texas, dressed in a pink Chanel-style suit. Much of her wardrobe came from the New York boutique Chez Ninon, where a young seamstress, named Kate, worked behind the scenes to craft the outfits. When the pink suit Kate created becomes iconic for all the wrong reasons, her already fragile world, divided between the excess and artistry of Chez Ninon and the traditional values of her insular neighborhood, threatens to rip apart.

We all know about the pink suit. We all know that Mrs. Kennedy dressed impeccably. But where exactly did her clothes come from? A great historical fiction novel.

Some pages can get very technical: if you are into sawing, you'll enjoy them , if not, keep a dictionary handy , for ex, check what a "toile" is , an essential element in the book.
A pink novel indeed, not red ( a romance, subtle sexual contents), not white ( biting & harsh comments that will probably offend Jacqueline Kennedy 's fans & Irish Catholics).
Ms Kelby 's mastering of metaphors & symbolism is very impressive.

Very engrossing and filled with details. It is apparent that the author did her research.
