Publisher Description

Tess, an aspiring seamstress, thinks she’s had an incredibly lucky break when she is hired by famous designer Lady Lucile Duff Gordon to be her personal maid on theTitanic. Once on board, Tess catches the eye of two men—a kind sailor and an enigmatic Chicago businessman—who offer differing views of what lies ahead for her in America. But on the fourth night, disaster strikes, and amidst the chaos, Tess is one of the last people allowed on a lifeboat.  
The survivors are rescued and taken to New York, but when rumors begin to circulate about the choices they made, Tess is forced to confront a serious question.  Did Lady Duff Gordon save herself at the expense of others? Torn between loyalty to Lucile and her growing suspicion that the media’s charges might be true, Tess must decide whether to stay quiet and keep her fiery mentor’s good will or face what might be true and forever change her future.

Enjoyed the Story

Loved the book and all the history involved, especially the storyline about the titanic. Sadly, history doesn't change much - especially with those who feel a sense of entitlement. A tad predictable on that front. I enjoyed how several of the main characters grew throughout the book, especially the main character. I also found it interesting to look up the real characters in Wikipedia. I love this genre of historical fiction. Definitely, a good read.

Catches you and holds on

First bit takes off slowly but then it soars. Well written and a pleasure to relax with.

The Dressmaker

The reader in the Audio version is very good. Enjoyed her voice.
The story was good and definately reflected some accurate history of the time period.
Just did not care for the ending.
