New York Times best-selling author Jennifer Chiaverini has a gift for transporting listeners into the past for riveting explorations of how seemingly ordinary women overcome extraordinary circumstances. In this departure from her beloved Elm Creek Quilts series, Chiaverini weaves a historical fiction tale profiling the life of Elizabeth Hobbs Keckley, a former slave who would become a dressmaker for Mary Todd Lincoln. A character largely forgotten to history, Keckley blossoms under Chiaverini’s masterful writing.

This book ruined reading for me! I absolutely LOVED it, couldn’t put it down. Now I have so much trouble trying to find something that holds my attention like Dressmaker did. I visited the Lincoln museum in Springfield after reading this and it just made the dresses and Mrs Keckley come to life. Hands down best book ever (next to the Bible of course!)!!!
DOES NOT WORK!!!!
This download did not work for me either. I'm a little upset as well. Really wish that I would have read the comment before I hit download. I'm glad there is no way to contact iTunes to get my money back!
