When Harriet Peters came to Boston in 1882, the Robinson family took her in like one of their own, and Harriet became closer to Lizzie Robinson than her own siblings. Now, four years later, Lizzie is deathly sick, failing quickly just like several others in her family have done over the past few years. How can so many in one family die from the same mysterious illness? Harriet doesn’t have answers, but she is determined to help the family, bringing in a new-to-the-neighborhood doctor, Michael Wheaton.

As Harriet and Michael close in on the answer, putting their own lives at risk, can the cause be found before anyone else dies?

4 Stars.


I am either-or on the books in the True Colors series. Some I haven’t been impressed with at all. The Green Dress is not one of those. It is chillingly well-written, intriguing, and does a fantastic job keeping the tension, danger, and suspense until the very end. I loved how protective Hattie is over the children and how loving Micheal is to his mom. If you enjoy reading historical Christian romance and suspense, you need to read The Green Dress.

*I received a copy of this book from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
