The fourteen essays in Reflections: A Wardrobe of Life Lessons offer bright glimpses into a richly lived life filled with curiosity, wisdom, grace—and dresses. With humor and honesty, Linda Styles Berkery tells personal stories through dresses, combining colors and fabrics with memories and meaning. These stories range from Berkery’s childhood, growing up in a funeral home watching many black dresses enter and leave the house—and asking her father, “Do we live in a church?”—to young motherhood when she buries her first maternity dress under a lilac bush, to mature adulthood when she discovers significance in the colors of her “reunion” dress after meeting the families of Danish fishermen who saved her father’s life in World War II. These heartfelt, entertaining stories unearth life lessons involving love, loss, gratitude, and more, leaving the reader inspired and filled with hope.

Having read Linda’s previous writings, I was eager to read Reflections A Wardrobe of Life Lessons. Linda’s recollections of certain events in her life are very heartwarming. Her generous spirit is shown in her willingness to help others. After reading Linda’s book, I am now holding on to a sweater that I wore when my granddaughter was born 13 years ago. Reflections is a worthwhile read, and I wholeheartedly recommend it.

I loved reading this book! It reminded me that we all should take time to write down our memories of parents, grandparents, and our own lives for our children and grandchildren.
