But love finds her in the most unexpected of ways. "Something Borrowed"Elizabeth Boyle tells the tale of Cordelia Padley, who has invented a betrothed to keep her family from pestering her to wed. Now she'll need to borrow one to convince them she's found her true love. "Something Blue"In Laura Lee Guhrke's story, unlucky Lady Elinor Daventry has her sixpence stolen from her and must convince the rake who pilfered the coin to return it in time for her own wedding. "...?nd a Sixpence in Her Shoe"Julia Quinn finishes with the story of Beatrice Heywood, who never believed that the sixpence was anything but a tarnished old coin-until it led all of her friends to true love. But her faith in the coin is tested when it keeps sending her to the wrong man!

Professional reviews

"Narrator Mary Jane Wells deftly weaves the four stories in this anthology. When four friends at Madame Rochambeaux's Gentle School for Girls find an old sixpence, they're convinced that it will bring them luck in getting married. The stories follow the old rhyme: "Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue, and a sixpence in her shoe." The listener easily envisions the ballrooms of the English aristocracy as each heroine meets her true love. Wells subtly distinguishes the voices of the four couples, matching the pace of each story. All four stories blend into a satisfying listen. S.B. © AudioFile 2017, Portland, Maine"
