The number 1 bestselling novel continues…

A unique Australian classic of revenge, small town secrets and high fashion, The Dressmaker was a worldwide phenomenon, the movie adaptation a box office sensation.  Now bestselling author Rosalie Ham rejoins her famous dressmaker, Tilly Dunnage, two years after she left her home town in flames.
