During this busy holiday season there’s no better time to pick a book that’s fun to read after a long day. I just started reading The Dressmaker by Kate Alcott and it promises to be just what I need! In this story, Tess Collins is a young maid in Cherbourg, France who, minutes before the Titanic’s maiden voyage, talks her way onto the ship, to work for the famous designer, Lady Lucille Duff Gordon.
We all know what happened to the Titanic, but we don’t know what will happen to Tess and the people she meets on the ship. This is the kind of book that is easy to get into, perfect for this time of year!
Kate Alcott is a New York Times bestselling author. Alcott is actually the pseudonym for journalist Patricia O’Brien, who is the author of several books under her real name.
Since The Dressmaker, Alcott has written two new books, The Daring Ladies of Lowell and her newest historical fiction, A Touch of Stardust, the story of Clark Gable’s affair with Carole Lombard during the filming of Gone With the Wind.
