Today is the day that Annie, Maude and Edna had waited and hoped for. They had quit their jobs and was starting out on a new adventure to make Annie’s dream come true of establishing a ready-to-wear dress shop for working women.
On a trip to Paris, Annie and her husband Sean had become acquainted with Eleanor and Harold Sampson who agreed to finance their adventure. Annie’s dream was to have simple ready-made clothes for the working class, but Mrs. Sampson had other ideals. She wanted fancy expensive clothes for the wealthy. When Annie didn’t comply with Eleanor’s wishes, their partnership came to an end.
Without funds how were they going to make their dream a reality? Help came from an unexpected source. Henrietta, Annie’s mistress when she had worked as a housemaid, had ran away from home and came to New York. After hearing about Annie’s money problems, she said she would finance her. Unfortunately Henrietta had little money and this too came to an end. They truly were out of money and no help in sight. All they had was prayers and faith that God would provide. Through personal and financial setbacks they kept the faith that God will provide. As always God did by placing the right people with the finances to help.
Today Annie’s dream came true. She opened the doors of Unruffled – Dresses for Unruffled, Unveiled, Unstoppable Women.
Everything is possible with God’s help.
I thoroughly enjoyed the book. The characters were very realistic and I felt their pain, despair and utter helplessness.
Highly recommended this book to all readers.
