The Dressmaker by Kate Alcott, Read by Susan Duerden
And then the Titanic goes down. Both women survive, but Lady Duff Gordon is in an almost empty lifeboat. The media maelstrom attacks the Duff Gordons, and Tess is forced to take sides. If she shows support for her boss, she might go down with the ship. But if she breaks ties with Lady Lucille, she might lose her chance in the design world.
Of course, there's love in the air, too. Tess must choose between a handsome woodworker she met on the ship, and the divorced rich man who tries to woo her. Oh, decisions!
I loved this audiobook--just the type of romance I like. Lots of history thrown in, along with some independent women. The reporter Pinky Wade is a great supportive character--female reporter for the Times demanding a raise? Heck, yeah!
This is another audio performer that I will be looking for--I thought her accents were great, the speed perfect for me, and I wanted to keep listening when I stopped driving!
