The Dressmaker

A Novel
Written by Kate Alcott | Narrated by Susan Duerden
Don’t miss this New York Times bestseller that “brims with engrossing storytelling” (Booklist). Aspiring seamstress Tess takes a job aboard the Titanic as maid to the glamorous designer Lady Lucile Duff Gordon. Both survive the tragic disaster — but then Tess must grapple with terrible rumors about her patron’s actions.

PUBLISHER DESCRIPTION

The Dressmaker’s a vivid, romantic, and relentlessly compelling historical novel about a spirited young woman who survives the Titanic disaster only to find herself embroiled in the media frenzy left in the wake of the tragedy.

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. Once on board, Tess catches the eye of two men, one a roughly-hewn but kind sailor and the other an enigmatic Chicago millionaire. But on the fourth night, disaster strikes.

Amidst the chaos and desperate urging of two very different suitors, Tess is one of the last people allowed on a lifeboat. Tess’s sailor also manages to survive unharmed, witness to Lady Duff Gordon’s questionable actions during the tragedy. Others-including the gallant Midwestern tycoon-are not so lucky.

On dry land, rumors about the survivors begin to circulate, and Lady Duff Gordon quickly becomes the subject of media scorn and later, the hearings on the Titanic. Set against a historical tragedy but told from a completely fresh angle, The Dressmaker is an atmospheric delight filled with all the period’s glitz and glamour, all the raw feelings of a national tragedy and all the contradictory emotions of young love.
