Summary
"Patty, in her mid-thirties, has been working at Goode's for years. She's married to Frank. She wants a baby, but Frank is always too tired for that kind of thing. Sweet Fay, wants to settle down with a nice man, but somehow nice men don't see her as marriage material. The glamorous Magda runs the high-end gowns department. A Slovenian émigré who met her Hungarian husband in a refugee camp, Magda is clever and cultured. Lisa, a teenager awaiting the results of her final exams, takes a job at Goode's for the holidays. Magda takes Lisa under her wing, and by the time the last marked-down dress has been sold, all of their lives will be forever changed" --
