A darkly satirical novel of love, revenge, and 1950s haute couture - soon to be a major motion picture starring Kate Winslet and Liam Hemsworth.
After 20 years spent mastering the art of dressmaking at couture houses in Paris, Tilly Dunnage returns to the small Australian town she was banished from as a child. She plans only to check on her ailing mother and leave. But Tilly decides to stay, and though she is still an outcast, her lush, exquisite dresses prove irresistible to the prim women of Dungatar. Through her fashion business, her friendship with Sergeant Farrat - the town's only policeman, who harbors an unusual passion for fabrics - and a budding romance with Teddy, the local football star whose family is almost as reviled as hers, she finds a measure of grudging acceptance. But as her dresses begin to arouse competition and envy in town, causing old resentments to surface, it becomes clear that Tilly's mind is set on a darker design: exacting revenge on those who wronged her, in the most spectacular fashion.

Eine etwas andere Geschichte

Ich bin durch den Film auf das Hörbuch gestoßen und war neugierig. Die Sprecherin ist sehr gut und auch die Länge ist angenehm. Die Geschichte selbst war manchmal etwas verwirrend durch die vielen Namen dennoch recht interessant.
Eine etwas andere Geschichte eben.
