The tragedy of the Titanic sinking is a moneymaker. Look at this cover!!!! The Titanic marked the ending of an era for a lot of people...and for me, the glitz and glamour of the Victorian/Edwardian era saved the book for me.

Quite a difference from the "collapsible" lifeboats on the Titanic, as well as having enough seats and a mandatory muster drill before the cruise began. Amidst the chaos and desperate urging of two very different suitors, Tess is one of the last people allowed on a lifeboat. Tess, an aspiring seamstress, thinks she's had an incredibly lucky break when she is hired by famous designer Lady Lucile Duff Gordon to be a personal maid on the Titanic's doomed voyage. Tess, the fulcrum of a star-crossed love triangle with two fellow survivors, a twice-divorced wealthy American and a sailor with a talent for woodcarving, never loses her integrity as she struggles to make sense of everything. The quality of the writing was adequate to tell the story, but I felt that it often suffered for the lack of emotional depth. It’s also a very valuable contribution to our understanding of the events surrounding the sinking of the Titanic, and its aftermath.” —Isabel Wolff, author of A Vintage Affair“Kate Alcott’s The Dressmaker is a beautifully told story that examines loss, love, couture and the choices we make when everything is on the line--all sewn together into one compelling read. Please try again. The author made it difficult to even care about the two main characters, Tess and Jim. Eh, my heart will go on. Her Secretary was on the same boat. She meets Lucile . --Huffington Post "It's Titanic revisited, in a romance focused on the survivors and the scandal, seen from the perspective of an aspiring seamstress whose fortunes intertwine with real characters from the epic tragedy....interesting historical facts...an appealing, soulful freshness to this shrewdly commercial offering"--Kirkus"Brims with engrossing storytelling....For fans of Sarah Jio, Susanna Kearsley, and immigrant tales." "A vivid portrait of the turbulent times and the heartbreak of real people underneath all the glamour of 1940s Hollywood. By focusing on the search for justice in the aftermath of the tragedy, this compelling first novel examines humanity at its best and worst, as seen through the eyes of one of the ship's survivors, a courageous young woman who is determined to make her own way in America.” —Lauren Belfer, author of A Fierce Radiance, KATE ALCOTT was a reporter covering politics in Washington D.C., where she and her husband still live. A dressmaker myself, I was intrigued when I saw this book and bought it without reading any reviews. Please try again. You're listening to a sample of the Audible audio edition.
