The blog for books and movies

the-dressmakerAfter twenty years spent mastering the art of dressmaking at couture houses in Paris, Tilly Dunnage returns to the small Australian town she was banished from as a child. She plans only to check on her ailing mother and leave. But Tilly decides to stay, and though she is still an outcast, her lush, exquisite dresses prove irresistible to the prim women of Dungatar. Through her fashion business, her friendship with Sergeant Farrat—the town’s only policeman, who harbors an unusual passion for fabrics—and a budding romance with Teddy, the local football star whose family is almost as reviled as hers, she finds a measure of grudging acceptance. But as her dresses begin to arouse competition and envy in town, causing old resentments to surface, it becomes clear that Tilly’s mind is set on a darker design: exacting revenge on those who wronged her, in the most spectacular fashion.

    Read this book. If you have seen the movie you understand the dramatic gothic feel of this story but the book takes it to a whole new level. you quite literally will laugh and cry as the main character Tilly fights against a whole town who see her as a murderess. As she fights for the truth she falls in love and cares for her crazy mother. Read this book.

  2. I read the dressmaker not that long ago. I really enjoyed this book because it was super intriguing, everything was so unique i was always left on the edge of my seat. Each character was so different and i think that is why i enjoyed the book so much. I would recommend this book for people ages 15 and above. I am yet to watch the movie but am excited to see if its close to the book. I think this book deserves four out of five stars.
