Do you like history, fashion and sewing? Then this beautifully written and engrossing novel is for you. Kelby opens a window into the lives of the political elite in the Kennedy era. It's also an unforgettable love story of an Irish immigrant seamstress in the New York boutique Chez Ninon, and her long time love, a butcher, from her insular Irish immigrant neighborhood. Kate and Patrick are wonderful fictional characters, and the evocation of life in the early 1960s is moving and convincing. Kelby spins a compelling tale of one of the most iconic garments ever sewn for a first Lady.
From the back rooms of Chez Ninon to the steps of Air Force One, The Pink Suit is a fabulous novel about hope, heartbreak, and what became of the American Dream.
