When a teenage girl disappears, a small town is awash with rumors: everyone is talking about the dress she wore, a midnight-blue dress made from the remnants of other dresses: a dress of stories. For her whole life, Rose Lovell has moved from town to town with her alcoholic father. When they wash up in a coastal sugarcane town, Rose wonders if this time it will be different. At the local high school, Rose meets Pearl Kelly, who is popular, pretty and intent on tracking down her Russian father. When she convinces Rose to be part of the annual Harvest Parade, Rose must find a special dress for the occasion. She seeks the help of the eccentric Edie Baker, who knows all the town? secrets and whose own family is a rich tapestry of stories. When Rose agrees to let Edie teach her to sew, she doesn? realize that nothing will ever be the same again. The Midnight Dress weaves an intriguing story of loss and longing to the very last page.
