The Dressmaker by Kate Alcott
This book is a Titanic story. It is the tale of a young British seamstress, Tess, who talks her way into a job with a famous American designer, Lady Lucile who takes her on The Titanic to go to New York. They miraculously survive the ship’s sinking but Lady Lucile causes much drame aboard the ship. Once in New York, Tess is unfortunately brought into the media frenzy surrounding Lady Lucile.
There are not one but two suitors for Tess. This is a wonderful historical novel that is very timely as April 15th is the anniversary of The Titanic’s sinking.
A few of my favorite quotes:
“Just like that other upstart, the one they all Chanel.”
“Then a sudden silence; they had stopped.”
“Stripped of their grand clothes, they looked quite ordinary.”
Just leave a comment here for a chance to win one of 5 copies.
