The Gown Shop on Regent Street
 

Authored by Meredith Kennon

The war is over at last, and London is alive and vibrant, but a city of rubble and deprivation. One woman, Priscilla Armstrong, determines to pursue her dream of opening a gown shop in the war-torn city. Against strong opposition, she wins the hearts of the citizens and the custom of women of all economic climes. The shop proves to be much more than a place of beauty and creativity, when it offers hope and safe-haven to individuals with nowhere else to go. Among them is a wounded soldier, a young woman in trouble, and two children, who are finally returning from the Americas to their homes and families in England. Only upon arrival, must they face the harsh reality that they have neither. Within the shop's walls, the handful of residents seeks what all of England craves-a return to normalcy, and the fulfillment of hopes and dreams, once so seemingly out of reach. Amidst rationing, crime, and a terrible housing shortage, something of beauty peeks out from the rubble and speaks to the wounded hearts of the people of England, who so bravely endured it all.
