On Christmas Eve 1875, an unnamed baby girl is rescued from the workhouse and handed over to a wealthy couple, Rose and Silas Clements, to raise as their very own. The couple call the child Holly and welcome her into their home as their little Christmas miracle.
As Holly grows into a lovely girl, full of joy and imagination as wild as her red hair, so too does Rose’s resentment of her. As the years pass by and the Clements have a child of their own, Holly is relegated to nothing more than the family’s maid. Not even Silas, the man that Holly has come to know and love as her papa, seems able to save her from his wife’s cruel ways.
Tragedy strikes the day after Holly’s 16th birthday, and she is cast from the Clementses' home to face Christmas on the cold London streets, alone and terrified.
With her world ripped from under her feet, Holly climbs the stone wall of London Bridge and peers into the rapid waters below, but a voice from the dark offers her hope...all she has to do is follow him.
Find out what happens to Holly in The Dressmaker’s Christmas.

A little bit strange
Very simple, very dramatic, very unbelievable. The characters are either very good or very bad. Really bad.
But they do live happily ever after.
Great Victorian era story
I always like a good story set in Victorian London and this one doesn’t disappoint. A classic story with nice references between the working class and the upper class and how their worlds become entwined.
Really enjoyed the pace of the narration as well, with a classic, clear voice that suited both the mood and era of the story.
A great combination of author and narrator.
