The Dressmaker of Dachau
THE INTERNATIONAL BESTSELLER
Spring 1939. Taken prisoner by the Nazis, eighteen-year-old Ada is forced into a life of slavery and horror in Dachau concentration camp. Her skill as a seamstress is the only bargaining chip she has against the brutal SS guards. Back in London, she dreamed of being a world-renowned designer; now she must sew to save her life…but at what cost?
For readers of THE TATTOOIST OF AUSCHWITZ and THE LIBRARIAN OF AUSCHWITZ, this is a powerful and moving story of courage and resilience, betrayal and passion.
”'The Dressmaker of Dachau is a thrilling story, brilliantly told. I couldn't put it down. Ada Vaughan is a character to fall in love with: utterly real, flawed and beguiling” - Saskia Sarginson, author of R&J pick, The Twins and Without You
”'I found myself completely swept up in this tale of love, ambition and vanity” - Juliet West, author of Before the Fall
”'A powerful and gripping tale of longings and dreams, and how a chance meeting that seems to offer the answers and more, instead comes with devastating consequences. It’s a story about what a person will do and can do under force.The world before, during and after World War II is amazingly well-drawn. But it is the character of Ada Vaughan that lingers, her resolve, her passion and her flaws” - Cecilia Ekback
