A heartwarming tale of an unlikely friendship amid love, loss, and lingerie 

In the basement of her Brooklyn apartment, Sima Goldner welcomes women of all shapes and sizes with warmth, acceptance-and a bra that gives them the support and lift they need. But Sima, regretfully childless at sixty, and harboring a secret that has embittered her marriage, can’t seem to do the same for herself. Then Timna, a young Israeli with enviable cleavage, arrives in search of a demi-cup and stays on to become the shop’s seamstress. As they laugh, gossip, and sell lingerie, Sima finds herself awakening to hope and the possibility of happiness in this beguiling story of New York’s underground sisterhood, and one woman’s second chance.

    " A nice read that shows how much we need to choose joy....and not wait for it to happen to us. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Andrea | 2/8/2014

    " This was a fast easy reading book but I felt an intense dislike for Sima, the main character. Her obsession with her shop girl, Timna, was a little too intense for me, a borderline obsession. Of course, I mellowed a bit at the end but it was too little, too late. "

    " I was expecting a lot more from this book. It is competently written but not exceptional, and the characters are not terribly interesting. I liked the Brooklyn setting, but didn't get a huge emotional catharsis from the plot. It was also quite slow in parts. "
