La e reservada regressa da Europa a Dungatar para cuidar da mãe Tinha abandonado a sua terra natal em circunstâncias adversas e os habitantes recebem na com desconfiança mas ela. 25★sWhen Tilly Dunnage returned after twenty years to Dungatar the small Australian town she used to call home she knew she would be shunned by the same people who had banished her as a child She needed to check on the welfare of her mother and then she would leave again Tilly had been trained as a dressmaker in Paris; her skill was second to none – but that would mean nothing to the bitter and vengeful women of the townTilly’s mother Molly was in a dreadful state – demented and filthy Tilly was shocked at the state of the home But hard work had never worried Tilly – she set herself the task of righting the house the garden and most importantly her mother And she decided to stay in Dungatar much to the disgust of the folk of the town Sergeant Farrat picked up his earlier friendship with Tilly and while she rebuffed Teddy his stubbornness kept him by her sideAs the women saw the evidence of Tilly’s skill they were bemused But they also wanted to own beautiful dresses and so the competition to be the best dressed began Rivalry and resentment were rife in the town – whatever would happen next The Dressmaker by Aussie author Rosalie Ham wasn’t at all like I expected I was shocked at the unexpectedly crude and graphic descriptions in certain parts of the book and I still have no idea why they were there To my mind they didn’t add to the story – in fact for me it’s uite the opposite Yet in other places it was uite humerous So I’m sorry to say I didn’t like the book and was really disappointed skimming through sections to reach the end
