In the stunning sequel to the international sensation The Dressmaker, Tilly’s challenge is to move away from one-upmanship, vanity and the women of Dungatar, and to employ her talents for beauty, and for something beneficial.

A unique Australian classic of revenge, small town secrets and high fashion, The Dressmaker was a worldwide phenomenon, the movie adaptation a box office sensation. Now bestselling author Rosalie Ham rejoins her famous dressmaker, Tilly Dunnage, two years after she left her home town in flames. Now it is 1953 and the fashion pages are awash with royal fever. The young queen’s coronation means a season of society balls and a rush to reproduce the latest styles of the Houses of Dior, Valentino and Balenciaga. Why, then, is the best dressmaker in Melbourne squandering her talents in a second-rate Collins Street salon? From whom, or what, is she hiding? Glamorous, blackly funny and full of unforgettable characters, The Dressmaker’s Secret returns to Rosalie Ham’s iconic vision of 1950s Australia.

'[Rosalie Ham] is a true original. Blessed with an astringently unsentimental tone and a talent for creating memorably eccentric characters, Ham also possesses a confidently brisk and mischievous sense of plot.'
The Sydney Morning Herald

'A writer with strong visual gifts and a pleasingly sour sense of humour.'
The Age

‘Ham’s eye for the absurd, the comical, and the poignant are highly tuned... definitely one to savour.’
The Weekend Australian
