Journal Entry 1 by Winterbirth from Newtownabbey, Co. Antrim United Kingdom on Wednesday, April 05, 2017
Tilly Dunnage left her hometown of Dungatar in rural Australia under a black cloud of accusation. Years later Tilly, now a couturier for the Paris fashion houses, returns home to make amends with her mentally unstable mother. Mid-century Dungatar is a small town, and small towns have long memories. At first she wins over the suspicious locals with her extraordinary dressmaking skills. But when the eccentric townsfolk turn on Tilly for a second time, she decides to teach them a lesson and exact long-overdue revenge...Packed with memorable characters, acid humour and luscious clothes, The Dressmaker is an irresistible gothic tale of small-town revenge.

Releasing as part of the Occupational Bookring.

A strange but intriguing tale about a young woman returning to her home town. The townsfolk of Dungatar are certainly an odd bunch but not of the kindly eccentric, quirky variety as there’s a slightly dark perverse side to some of them. There were odd little sub-plots here & there &, coupled with a lack continuity at times, it meant the story didn't always flow particularly well. While throughout there is a vein of wry black humour, towards the end things I felt things just became farcical & for me it was unnecessarily over the top.

Despite there being one or two sentences that made me feel a bit uncomfortable, I'd say overall I liked it.
