The Dressmaker’s Gift (by Fiona Valpy) … an emotional and engaging story

An amazing and engaging story that exposes the reader to a different aspect of the Nazi invasion during WWII. The book goes back and forth through time pulling you into the lives of the characters. As the reader gets to know the ladies, you will experience mixed emotions … admiring some of them and having no respect for others.

How much can a person influence another’s integrity? It was uplifting to discover how these amazing ladies were willing to do everything possible to make a difference and take a stand against the atrocities Hitler’s regime inflicted on so many innocent people.

This was an emotional read and I found myself sobbing out loud. But the story is one that is worth reading as you observe the growth of the characters and the relationships that develop and strength as you turn the pages and get engrossed in the story.
