Keep tissues handy for this heartwarming story of self-discovery and acceptance

I left this book on my dining room table while I had a housesitter staying over. They texted me in the middle of my vacation to tell me that they were crying over it. This is that kind of book: pretty enough to make you pick it up, and true enough to make it worth it.
 
Sebastian is a prince, expected to court the daughters of Belle Époque Paris. He has a secret, though: at night he goes out on the town as Lady Crystallia, in astonishing dresses made by his best friend Frances. Frances loves making incredible works of art for her friend to wear, but she wants to make a career of her dressmaking and can't do that in the shadows. Can they both live their dreams?
 
Come for the gorgeous art, stay for the gentle story of family, friendship, and romance.
