  • The Women in Black. Madeleine St John 1993

    This book considered 'literary chic-lit' is a delightful story about a group of ladies in 1950's Sydney who work in a fictional department store named Goodes in Elizabeth St. The fact that their uniform is black would suggest this store is in fact the David Jones flagship store on Elizabeth and Market sts. Post war most women were homemakers and few worked. This exceptional group of ladies lead interesting lives outside of the store. Culturally the book is important as it introduces European refugees or 'The continentals' as the ladies call them. These characters are pivotal to the whole story and enter these women's lives it appears for the better. The book is an easy read with very short chapters. The story moved along at a steady pace and leaves the reader feeling very satisfied by the last page. 4.5/5!

    Thanks for your feedback!
