THE DRESSMAKER, by Rosalie Ham, is being made into a movie starring Kate Winslet. You’ll be able to see it on the big screen in October.
THE DRESSMAKER, is a novel of love, revenge, and haute couture. It takes place in a small town in Australia. Myrtle (Tilly) Dunnage returns to Dungatar after leaving in shame as a young person, many years ago. She’s managed to make something of herself after living and working in the haute couture houses in Paris. She’s really only come back to check on mom who’s ailing. When she decides to stay and make a go of it making exquisite dresses the righteous women’s old resentments come back to haunt her.
I love a good story centered on revenge. And I also enjoy reading about Australia and dressmaking. All this adds up to a read to remember.
