    Tess, an aspiring seamstress, thinks she's had an incredibly lucky break when she is hired by famous designer Lady Lucile Duff Gordon to be a personal maid on the Titanic's doomed voyage. Once on board, Tess catches the eye of two men, one a roughly-hewn but kind sailor and the other an enigmatic Chicago millionaire. But on the fourth night, disaster strikes. Amidst the chaos and desperate urging of two very different suitors, Tess is one of the last people allowed on a lifeboat. Tess’s sailor also manages to survive unharmed, witness to Lady Duff Gordon’s questionable actions during the tragedy.

    Victoria says: "Good story, awful narrator"

    What would have made The Dressmaker better?

    The narrator was awful, and the story was predictable and sophomoric!

    Probably not.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Susan Duerden’s performances?

    Never!


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Frustration due to the potential of the concept that was undelivered.
