Publisher's Summary

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 harbours 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.

Couldn't listen to it!

I could not listen to it because of the narration. I kept going back to try again with big intervals in between. The voice was very flat indeed and sounded like a very good' text to speech' because it sounded to be all on one level. I could not listen to it all to finish. I am very sorry indeed to Rachel Griffiths. It was a great shame, I really wanted to listen to it I loved the movie and wanted to hear the book. Sorry to Rosalie Ham, but my advice is to get a different narrator.
