Description

A darkly satirical novel of love, revenge, and 1950s haute couture—now a major motion picture starring Kate Winslet, Judy Davis, Liam Hemsworth, and Hugo Weaving
 
After 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.

From the Trade Paperback edition.

    How ridiculously disappointing was this?!? I have no words to describe this book. Too many characters, it was impossible to keep up with the storyline. I read 75 pages until I couldn't take it anymore. I did read the last chapter and I see it was a wise choice to not finish this stupid book. It does have a nice cover.

    In the movie that I just saw on Amazon I was excited and relieved and felt vengeful at last but the movie had two events occur in it that I'm unsure the director should have slowed especially with the very last scene; the way the movie ended I was so curious that I wanted to read the sequel assuming that there was one and to find out that there wasn't one I was totally supposed at the movies plot and I'm curious and hopeful that the book doesn't end the same at the very least. Good watch though!

    Or, morale-less? That is the question. Fun finding out.
