From the Publisher
"Luxuriate in shades of pink, in descriptions of haute couture so exquisite and precise that you can feel elegant just by reading the words. Nicole Mary Kelby has stitched together from scraps of facts a compelling novel, a lovable heroine, and a living neighborhood in its last few moments of innocence. From its startling opening to its poignant ending, The Pink Suit shows us that behind events of global significance, there are unknown individuals worthy of our interest."
-Susan Vreeland, author of Clara and Mr. Tiffany and Luncheon of the Boating Party
"Beautifully written and engrossing, The Pink Suit gives us an extraordinary alternative reality, transforming JFK and Jackie's romance into the unforgettable love story of a seamstress and a butcher. Kate and Patrick are wonderful creations, and the evocation of the early 1960s is moving and convincing. Kelby spins a compelling tale of one of the most iconic garments ever sewn, and makes it entirely her own."
-Claire Kendal, author of The Book of You
"The Pink Suit is a wonderfully absorbing and richly textured novel, strikingly rendered with a keen eye for the details of art and fashion and an equally acute ear for the workings of the human heart. Kelby captures perfectly the yearnings, disappointment and aspirations of an unforgettable heroine against the backdrop of a national tragedy."
-Anne D. LeClaire, author of Entering Normal and The Lavender Hour
"One of history's most tragic and iconic outfits has long had its own strange and compelling story. Now, at last, that story has been told-and beautifully."
-Jeffery Kluger, author of Lost Moon: The Perilous Journey of Apollo 13
"The Pink Suit is a rare work, fascinating and beautifully crafted. Nicole Mary Kelby's sensuous prose is as opulent as the couture she describes."
- Jennifer Chiaverini, author of the New York Times bestseller Mrs. Lincoln's Dressmaker
