  • Layers of life

    A colourful story of a young girl thrust into the realities of life burdened by an unspeakable betrayel during WW2. Her story is an interesting read, the language often earthy but honest. I enjoyed her journey and thoroughly recomend you follow her footsteps around the world, inand out of bars and clubs and caves and graveyards till her circle is complete.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Such Finesse for a Debut!

    Written with such finesse that it's hard to believe this is the author's debut! Rosa has a story to tell, and it is expertly written and unfolds beautifully. From her hard life as a young girl in a mountain village to the creator of a global fashion empire, she reveals everything - the good, the bad and, yes, the ugly. She is honest to a fault and her story is related while she prepares herself for the single most important meeting of her life. I was first drawn to this book by both the title and cover; I've been known to create a few articles of clothing myself over the years so anything with 'dressmaker' in the title always piques my interest. I can't tell you how happy I am that I requested this one and didn't scroll on by. Unfolding at an even pace from first to last, it is a tantalising tale, which drew me in until I felt as if Rosa is - well, not my best friend, but definitely someone I was aware of. Skilfully created, this is an eloquent tale and I admired so much about Rosa whilst wondering if I would have been able to take the hard decisions she had to. This novel has left me feeling honoured and privileged to have been given a glimpse into Rosa's world and it's all wrapped up with a superb finale! Georgia Kaufmann is definitely an author to watch and, in all conscience, I really cannot give this one any less than a full five stars.

  • Happy, sad, betrayed, it’s all here!

    This deserves ten stars at least! This story is of one girl, before and during WWII. Betrayed, happy, sad, it’s all there. Love the way this story unfolds. This was recommended to me by a close friend and will definitely be looking for more by this wonderful author.

  • Incredible

    I loved this. I loved how the protagonist takes hold of her destiny despite the hardships of WWII and makes a success of herself.
