I love historical novels and was totally entranced by The Dressmaker. With 439 pages I was interested in each and was sad when the story was over. I was a little confused about the location in England of some of the homes that Ellen lived in and the speech and slang seemed a little off in some parts of the story. But these were such slight imperfections that it didn't detract from the story at all. I loved the descriptions of the clothing and homes and how they were decorated. These descriptions bring the story to life. Although Ellen had a very sad and trying life for most of her years she worked hard and made good friends and her family loved her to make the story happy at the same time.
