What’s it about?
I need to tell you a story, ma chère. My story.
Rosa Kusstatscher has built a global fashion empire upon her ability to find the perfect outfit for any occasion. But tonight, as she prepares for the most important meeting of her life, her usual certainty eludes her.
What brought her to this moment? As she struggles to select her dress and choose the right shade of lipstick, Rosa begins to tell her incredible story. The story of a poor country girl from a village high in the mountains of Italy. Of Nazi occupation and fleeing in the night. Of hope and heartbreak in Switzerland; glamour and love in Paris. Of ambition and devastation in Rio de Janeiro; success and self-discovery in New York.
A life spent running, she sees now. But she will run no longer.
Official blurb for The Dressmaker of Paris
This book is simply dazzling! The atmosphere, the imagery, the descriptive tone of voice. It’s sophisticated narrative really brought the story and characters to life leaving a lasting impact on the reader.
I really enjoyed the historical perspective of the story. It’s structure was very well presented and left the reader moving forward even though we were reading back in time.
It’s a stunning novel about self discovery and an epic life, retold as a memory of someone but also as a story within its own right.
Although titled ‘Paris’, this story takes place all over the world and has a wonderful cast of characters that are so easily likeable and relatable. You get to see them through the character’s eyes which is what I really enjoyed about the author’s writing, as if Kaufmann was sitting across from you telling you this story personally.
It’s an exquisite book and an author to watch! A story full of hope, determination, and discovery!
